    Chad Reed is a ..........

    I know the answer to this one
    Hes a privateer

    or is he ?

    Lets examine the evidence
    his team is owned by..... Chad Reed
    his team has how many riders..... one
    his teams only rider is..... Chad Reed

    So why have I never heard the word privateer in the same sentence as Chad Reed ? . Is being called a privateer considered an insult ?

    Because sometime last year Honda started giving full factory resources and parts to 22 motorsports, so he is no longer a privateer.

    Even though they are on different teams, Reed has let Kdub test ride his bike because both teams are supported by HRC.

    That explanation makes sense. . Im sure without the factory support it would be a real burden to try to get thru a season

    Look at this link, (among other things) it tells about why its impossible to be a privateer in FIM Mx1GP
