Luck has nothing to do with it. Nobody has back luck like that, when his teamate's bike runs perfect. Yamaha or someone at Yamaha is behind this. Ben should get up and leave now before something really bad happens. Someone needs to find out who is behind this.

Don't worry Ben, we know it's not you.
We know Lin Jarvis is behind your 'bad luck'.

True race fans and riders can see all the problems your bike is having, almost every round.

We understand the incredible risk you're taking when you try to push a bike that isn't setup correctly. We know what it's like to lack confidence in your bike when too many things go wrong that are beyond your control. Parts breaking, engines blowing, tires chunking, total BS. Not worth dying for.

Ben don't get hurt because the bike is crap.

WE ALL SEE HOW YAMAHA ISN'T BACKING YOU 100% LIKE THEY ARE BACKING LORENZO AND WE THE USA ARE DISGUSTED.


YAMAHA LIN JARVIS IS DESTROYING YOUR HONOR AND REPUTATION.

YAMAHA IF YOU WANT TO KEEP SELLING MOTORCYCLES IN THE USA, FIRE LIN JARVIS IMMEDIATELY.

IF YOU DO NOT FIRE LIN JARVIS THEN WE THE USA KNOW YAMAHA ARE BEYOND THIS DISHONESTY.

YAMAHA YOU DISHONOR THE USA.

WE BOYCOTT YOU YAMAHA UNTIL YOU FIRE LIN JARVIS AND RESTORE HONOR TO YOUR NAME.

I said this in another thread... if anyone seriously thinks a team and team manager would put a bike out that is not 100% safe to their rider and others on the track... you've got another think coming as you're deluded!

Get real, conspiracy theorists!!! (...Ben's Pies fans!)

'if anyone seriously thinks a team and team manager would put a bike out that is not 100% safe to their rider and others on the track... you've got another think coming as you're deluded!'

I could easily see it. Money and power steam roll morality and ethics millions of times every day, all over the world, constantly. Near as I can tell the compromise of ethics and morality for the gain of material and power is a given in this day... You think suits at Yamaha wouldn't plow Spies or others under in a heartbeat for a perceived market edge and padded bottom line? I can **easily** see it.

It looks bad, but I don't think there is any conspiracy. Most of the issues are beyond something someone could orchestrate. Chucking tires, failed suspension, blown engine. The only thing Yamaha could do to sabotage him would be to simply withhold the best electronics settings. The bike wouldn't handle as well and Ben would not be fast. Which...maybe they did. Who knows? Yamaha needs a title sponser and perhaps someone ABOVE the team decided early on they wanted to try luring Rossi back. Jarvis may not even know. Only the electronics engineer and Yamaha brass needs to know. But then again....maybe not. We'll never know.
