On this, and other threads, the 2011 Yam looks really good. I wonder if it was built using feedback from George's data. He is getting the results this year so I guess it was. Credit to him and his team.

Sorry about above, it's Ben's thread.
Ben is getting better and better and to be quicker on this bike, and rides so different to George, then the bike must be a stonker. We all know that Ben already is a stonking rider. (I'm a fan)

I think Spies will be beating Lorenzo very soon. I like Lorenzo but have followed Spies for a good 4-5 years and will be rooting for him before Lorenzo.

Rossi on a Ducati is going to be fantastic for the show and us fans.

The show has become a bit boring this year. Leaders disappearing in the distance and not so many overtaking. Also they struggle to keep 15 riders on the grid.

re: I think Yamaha will give Ben a bike with factory support at Indy.

it would make sense for Yammy to switch resources from VR to BS.. question is if it goes smoothly

All Yamaha gave him at Laguna was a measly 500 extra RPM so I wouldn't expect any new upgrades. actually from his performance Sunday, he has a bike that's not so far off the factory.
