I chosse the Suzuki Team because i think its what Ben needs.!! He needs a new fresh star again a new motivacion to not give up.. Ben dont have nothingh more to prove him production bikes, he win several times the AMA Champ and just slap every Top rider at WSBK.. Is Dream was Motogp and he allways new that is not esay.. Like many champions say its not dificult to get there and make some good results, dificult is to continuing making the good performances!! I think with a new Team and one good manager that will support him let say a manager like kevin schwantz will give hom the boost he need to fight for is Dream, to have at least one Motogp Champion just like Nicky hayden

I think he should go back to WSBK, where he can fight for great things. I don't see him as a title contender in MotoGP, not only because of how this season is going but mainly because of the lack of progression since his rookie season. You see a guy like Lorenzo, who was WC in 2010, improve his riding and his attitude during 2011 and now 2012, while other riders like Ben, Dovi or Pedrosa seem stucked at the same level season after season.

So yeah, WSBK. If he has a good bike, he should give Checa, Biaggi and Melandri a run for their money.

Something about back where hes meant to be... Wonder where that is? Disappointed that he is leaving Yamaha though have not seen any joy from Ben this season. First thing I thought of when I heard this is that he is done with racing. But then again don't think so.

Suzuki have been a great team in the past and can be a great team again. Younger fans won't remember the glory years. I'd love to see Ben heading a return to the top.
We need to have the big three jap teams competing In MotoGP. And besides all that, the Rizla Suzuki was one beautiful machine and not far off the pace despite a huge cut back in budget.

Would like to see Spies and Crutchlow replacing Vale and Hayden at Ducati, and see if the bike is really as bad as it appears. I think it is much quicker than we are seeing just now, and these 2 guys could put it out front.

WSBK would be the obvious choice where he could compete for podiums and championship titles. Something went drastically wrong for him this year and you have to perform consistently at the highest level against the best in the world.

On a side note i always find it interesting how Lin Jarvis contradicts himself in interviews, one minute Ben Spies will remain in the team next minute hes gone. One minute theres no place for Rossi back at Yamaha next minute it is an option.
