Delighted for the guy but still a little puzzled as to why he cant get a job back home in the US. (American Superbikes). Likely he will be flying back and forth between races living in and out of suitcases..... Still he made his name in BSB and the fans will likely welcome him.

Agree that he may well be chasing the GP bike for 2015 but by then he'll be 32 years old and with all those Spanish hotshots watching, it'll be a hard task (getting the MotoGP Suzuki).

Doing well in BSB is worth a lot more than doing well in the AMA in the US.

It's interesting how one injury prone American retires, and another returns. Hopper has some unfinished business in MotoGP, and BSB for that matter.

Yup, American Superbike just isn't what it used to be. For sure BSB has more credibility. I sure hope the guy can stay healthy. This guy breaks bones like Evel Kenievel...however you spell his damn name! LOL and John isn't even doing crazy stunts. Good luck!!

Isn't each BSB team limited to 2 riders now? That means they've got to ditch either Brookes or PJ, both of whom wouldn't deserve it... Could be interesting to see where one of them ends up, maybe Tommy Hill's new team?

BSB looking to be where it's at next year, GPs have already been decided for next year and WSBK is in a bit of a bind until someone other than kawasaki and aprilia show up, hoping Rossi jumps to WSBK sooner rather than later.
