"I must admit that his loyalty to Suzuki at first seemed like a lost cause, considering they haven't had a bike worth racing on for over 8 years"

I Disagree, in 2006 and 2007 Suzuki and Kawasaki were regularly finishing in front of Rossi's Yamaha.

to be precise 2006 Baylis replaced Sete for 1 race and won the GP, Sete won nothing all year and crashed for half the races...

Previously Baylis had raced a Ducati in moto gp and got no wins.

Suzuki 7th last weekend, hope they can repeat or improve - wonder how they would have gone with Casey or Jorge or Dani on board?

Great ride from Bautista on a bike that is maybe a little down on power.

All due respect to Hopper. His run in the BSB this year is pretty impressive. And since he is an Anglo-American, the anti American crap (you know who you are ahole) really seems impotent now. Cangrats!

Now for the bad. Suzuki is dying fast and Denning is the man driving the bus off the turnpike. No, it is not his fault entirely. But he has achieved nothing since taking the helm there. He allowed Hopper, KRJR and Ben Spies to slip through his metaphorical fingers. I am surprised he didn't announce an Elena Myers Wildcard for Indy! Time to step down Paul and let Schwantz take the reins. I would bet that Suzuki might even stand a chance of getting Spies back if he was racing for Kevin. Rant off.

Ha ha Well we all know there is no way Hopper wants to have any dealings with Ulrich. so It would have to be another Suzuki and why would he even want to do that after all the close exciting racing he's been doing in BSB. Go Hopper!!
