I got my Yamaha 50th anniversary R1 because Ben won in those colors. Oh, well. I 'm still a Spies fan, and I hope he stays in Moto GP, but I like the idea of him moving into BMW, or like someone else speculated, Suzuki. Michael Jordan is a billionaire with two Suzuki teams in AMA. He has stated several times he would like to race in GP in the future. He could fund a full Suzuki GP effort with NIKE title sponsor advertising, and any of the other 100 products MJ endorses. So I could see Spies, and maybe one of his AMA guys moving into Moto GP next year. MJ is not concerned about losing money. His NBA team is the worst in the leagues , and makes the least amount of revenue, and he could care less. This means he's willing to dump a ton of money into Suzuki GP. Anyways , that's my take.
