@GP Fan
Get over yourself too,I'm having a go at CERTAIN north American posters,it's called retaliation,like it or not.

I like Ben he's a class act,but when things go wrong and i'm not just talking about this year he far to quickly parks up the bike, a gripe that I have always had about him.

does he yearn for the friendlier paddock that is world superbike,where everything is much more laid back and chilled, the gp paddock can be a very,very unfriendly place,even within your own team,far too many back stabbing italians,spanish etc in it,and high pressure press maggots. its part of the game tho.they go easy on rossi et al, but non europeans stoner, spies, rea ,crutchlow,etc will get shredded if they are not thick skinned/tough enough.yeah hes a good enough rider,but has lost his way a lot,will he get it back , i dont know, jt never got it back,i guess mammy aint the one needed here, but a strong mentor,get revin kevin schwantz in for a week or two,to reset his focus and shake some trees,n see what falls out .

"he may have just been at the right place at the right time for most of his career up to this point."....

Exactly right. This is where an overblown ego and a fluke WSBK championship get you. By the way, I'm American and can't stand this guy.

Used to feel the same about Crutchlow but he taken his humble pie and is riding pretty well. Hope he gets the seat next year. With CS retiring, there is now way in hell that baby ben keeps a factory ride.

@rocket R1 what went wrong was the heavens opened and a rider who's having a nightmare of a season saw his worst case scenario happen a wet race.he can't handle it simple as possible one of the worst wet weather riders of all time.he'll do ok at some point in the season when the track conditions suit,the bike is set up perfectly to his liking and all the planets are in alignment then we'll see the alien that he is.

"In the beginning we were doing good."

"in the beginning we were doing good compared to randy,but as soon as we got going my backside went"

Oh Ben, you have to go to Dani's place and ask him how he ditched his old Nolan and switched to Arai in the middle of the season, or if you don't feel like going to Dani, go to Max's place and ask him how he made excuses for wearing an solid white Arai instead of his contracted AGV for a rainy race..... If you don't want to go and ask them yourself, maybe you can ask your man to go....
