Put those three ingredients together Jamie  -  likeability, marketability and racing talent and you've got the recipe for success and success attracts investment - MotoGp is a business the spin-off  of which is entertainment for us fans.  It's mercenary but that's how big business works.

Checchinello is one of the nicest guys in the paddock.

I don't think Bradl is on Showa suspension, only Bautista. Bradl does have Nissin brakes though.

If Checcinello find the money to pay the bike , the mechanics then Honda will say to him "we don't sell to you the bike". For the factory bike of Bradl, Checcinello don't pay anything to Honda?Honda give him the bike for free and say him what to do?
