250GP star Alvaro Bautista has signed with Rizla Suzuki for the next 2 years in MotoGP. Now the questions is: Who will his teammate be?
Quick update on the MotoGP Silly Season from your friendly road-racing scribe Steve-O here...

I don't care for the rider or the team. The only thing good I see coming out of this is that Suzuki has intentions for two more years in moto gp. I had feared they were leaving moto gp just like Kawasaki.
