Just need King Kenny to chime in and the A-hole parade will be complete. Fanny Trowell and Mike Vaseline are already in the bull pen! Seriously you lot need to get lives and stop trolling on Ben Spies Threads!

Has Bob Starr said anything to the press as yet about Spies Defection? America is a huge part of Yamahas global sales and to lose the sole American Yamaha rider in the World Championship does not bode well for him. Rossi will of course help this but I am just curious to find out what he has said.

@Stuart
Well where was Crutchlow??
I guess if were gonna start doing math like some of you Crutchlow would have never got on the podium last race if Stoner hadn't have been hurt and Rossi wouldn't have got second place sunday if Dani and Cal hadn't of crashed.
They probley should stop racing all together and just let you guys predict the races.
How are you guys so smart?? And I'm being sarcastic by the way.

Well I guess if Ben Spies isn't good enough for the grid I don't know where most of the other riders are gonna race at,look at his MotoGP stats compared to the rest of the field and think about how stupid your comment was.
And just to be clear Jorge is on the second best bike on the Grid,I think Spies is on a Chinese M1 knockoff.
But at least he finished the race...

"I think Spies is on a Chinese M1 knockoff."

Now that is funny. But I have to agree with your comments concerning Mr. Spies. Some very stupid comments by many nameless persons who will remain nameless.

Chinese M1 knockoff. ROMAL !!!!

And how many of those riders have a factory machine?

A fatory Yamaha or Honda is a big advantage upon which Spies seems unable to capitalize. Lorenzo has put the same bike as Spies in 1st or 2nd place in every race except the one where he was taken out by Bautista's temporary insanity. If you can't lead a lap on that bike then you shouldn't be in MotoGP at all.

Petrolbone do you even read what you type? You say that if you can't lead a lap on that bike then you shouldn't be in motogp at all. Good thing that Spies has led laps at a few races this year on it. Before you rant you should check facts. This has garnered you a coveted dooshbagoftheday award amigo. Enjoy.
