I saw a clip of Ben braking in to the last turn and his bike moving around a little too much. Me thinks hes more worried about being pitched off his bike, like the Yamaha, then getting faster times.

Im sorry, but I didnt see Randy amount to much of anything last year, Aleix pretty much took him to task. Hope the best for RdP, but I think he would be better off helping to fill up WSBK with more competitive bikes than wasting his time in a championship where only 2 or 3 people have any reasonable expectation of making the podium.

Who really knows what's going on in Ben's head... We all know that the guy can be fast. The guy had sh!t luck in 2012, and is on a totally new setup, so chances are his mind's in a funk. I hope that he'll clear his head, not be gun-shy, put in WORK, get over the ills, and ride the piss out of that Ducati. Ben's got a lot of doubters right about now, so what better way but to rise from the proverbial ashes. About Suzuki, and of Ben's career moves this year and beyond, nothing speaks louder than results, --- so for Ben's sake, he'd better put the spurs in it.

Ben's head is as hard as they come - he managed to beat Mladin head on in the AMA after all

The problem with Ben is that he just isn't good enough to be the best in Grand Prix, just as Bayliss wasn't or Edwards or Haga.

although I like the idea of Spies on the Suzuki, that's a long, long way off, and he's gota seat on good team.

currently he's not 100% fit n that has a lot to do with his results. I'm confident that once he is healthy n racing, he's gona have fun riding the ducati regardless of its current pos state.
