I think we should respect the riders feelings regarding  the Motegi Gp. We may not agree with them but should understand their personal views.

a little bit of knowledge is very dangerous

it'll be far more dangerous living in a stone house in Cornwall where there is potential exposure to naturally occurring radon gas .... or probably more dangerous actually flying at high altitude getting to Japan on a plane.  let's see what happens after Brno.

Well said

There will be an independent assessment of radiation levels at the end of this month. 

Independent. 
That will show radiation levels.
They will show ok or not ok.
OK= they should go or face sanctions.
NOT OK = Its all off.
Its really that simple.
To pre-empt  the finding with a decision not to go is daft. 
They`ve painted themselves into a corner now and may well end up looking foolish. 
They ought to know better.

Regarding what the japs want, They may actually want to carry on with it for some sort of normality thing...."we`re open for business" type of thing.
Let them decide, not us.

Boycott

I suppose they should be boycotting X-rays the next time someone falls off and breaks their collar bone!  Perhaps a ban on bananas would be appropriate too.  Someome should probably tell them that gasoline and used motor oil contain carcinogens.  Oh maybe we should boycott Phillip Island becasue of the hole in the ozone layer which is at its worst in the australian spring!   I suppose very few of these guys got much of an education while they were working their way up to MotoGP but you would think the teams could hire someone to sit down and give these guys a basic primer.
