MotoGP » POLL: What now for Ben Spies?

Could be one of three places or none at all. 1) MotoGP (Suzuki or BMW) 2) WSBK (BMW) 3) AMA (Suzuki) Enigmatic, he is. He may not return to racing at all, sharing Casey's reasons. If it's GP that see's him in 2013, make Jarvis his primary reason to win. WSBK, bring Nicky with him so that we can see GP's true agenda. Edwards can stay. AMA, new story - let's keep it on the home-front between him and Hayes.

MotoGP » Ben Spies to leave Yamaha MotoGP team

This is not shocking to me at all. From once Ben began, a certain 'starvis' seemed to have never wanted him on the team. How can any rider join a team with upper management not seemingly in his/her favor? IMO this is a relief for Ben. He's an amazing rider and deserves to have a comfortable atmosphere. WSBK or Suzuki supported GP effort? America has the largest economy in the world. Dismissing a fraction of it in support of MotoGP is not a good idea. So, will we see an American rider in GP or will we see them in WSBK?

RR » Nicky Hayden to lap TT course with Doohan

Man, you sound just like one of my good friends, a fellow racer. With respect, I have to disagree regarding your viewpoint. I believe this is about promoting the TT to the level it needs to be and a very good way to do that is to have these megastar riders make appearances. I don't think it's at all about who can fart the loudest or piss the furthest. And hey, this form of promotion is working well for the TT. I'm making plans to go there next year!

RR » Nicky Hayden to lap TT course with Doohan

Being an American, and observing the last two years of the Isle of Man TT via the HD channel here in the U.S., it is not only the most breath-taking form of road-racing that I've ever seen but, absolutely beautiful there! To have Nicky as part of it's support coverage, is genius in regard to American viewers. Like a previous post stated, a lot of my friends have also become involved with watching the races with never having put a leg over. I love the format of the race coverage and I'm thankful we get to see it.

MotoGP » Spies second-place ends on the floor after ‘taking it easy’

@WesBiker. I agree with you 100% regarding the attacks (altogether). Totally not necessary. I'm one of those F'n Yankees that proud spaniard was referring to. I make light of that because we're all in this (freedom to write about it) together. However, I'm a former, amateur road racer and I can appreciate what it takes for ANYONE from ANY country to get out there and put it on the line. Spies and Lorenzo have done that and I have the utmost respect for them. I could care less where their from, I just know they'd wax my slow @$$ on the track!

MotoGP » Crutchlow rebounds for 'stronger' Sepang finish

@RawDawg...I agree. That chart isn't useful. Speaking of Cal however as an American, I like the guy where as a lot of folks do not give him enough credit. I don't get that but, I think this guy is going to do just fine. His work ethic is real and he knows how to survive. He's seeking the right sources for help and he's listening. Just wait, he's going to surprise quite the lot of ya.

MotoGP »'s MotoGP top ten: 7th

It's so easy to get riled-up, diverted, or diluted with different topics. It's quite a shame to see such shallow views when the focus should be on these individuals (riders) from across the world who are in my opinion, heroes of the sport of competitive motorcycle racing. Pretty basic view, right? It should be. It's the core to which we are all brought together to this forum. I have to ask, "How many of you race or participated in any sort of track day event or motorcycle training?" Or, "How many have been to any professional or amateur, motorcycle racing events?". I ask because any sort of criticism toward these elite riders is totally unjustified. Using the recorded times of the last, post-season testing at Valencia, it's around two seconds that separates first from last. Amazing, if (going back to my first question) you've been on the track yourself. I reflect on this because I'm one that's tried to get close to the last place guy in an amateur event. I'm pitiful!

WSBK » Haga undergoes successful operation

Nori has proven the meaning of "Pressure". If anyone can overcome this adversity, it's Nori. On the other side of the coin, Ben is determined to be a rookie World Champion and his chances are very good. With Ben staying in this Championship for the next couple of years, I foresee much excitement between him and Nori, bringing back a rivalry such that resembles the days of Bayliss and Edwards. I look forward to it!
