For the record Bayliss is my favorite rider of all time. But get real you need to "get real". Bayliss has ten years of track time on these circuits. He rode what everyone believes is the No 1 bike and team. Like Haga he would likely lead the championship if he rode today. But he would be battling Ben all the way. Ben would likely be in the same position he is now - winning races but to many get offs. I love you guys who said he was just a Suzuki product in AMA and now it's the Yamaha... Classic.

"There will be a chance for Spies in Tech3 Yamaha Next year, Poncharal has been pretty transparent that he will get spies if James toseland cannot deliver a good result."

Why would Ben would take a satellite team position?

If he continues performing the way he has he won't be taking any satellite offers in any motorcycle racing league.

"There's not one other race or Superpole where the results actually matter where he has not won or had some sort of problem"

Ben probably is the best rider in world superbikes, But you superfans are unbearable. IF he wins he's god, if he doesn't win he has a problem. Yet you rubbish talk of anyone else having issues because only Ben spies is allowed to have problems.
You bring the level WSB fans down the level of footbal hooliganism. And are generating the same kind of dislike and hate between fans. Dont be suprised if somebody tries to assasinate Ben Spies just to stop your inane ramblings because it is getting there. Watch what you say, because its creating a bad image for World Supers

Ben is winning now because he rode against the best Superbike racer in the world for the last four years mates.

Don't forget that rider back in the States beat Mr. Spies more than the other way around.

WSBK won't be the ultimate Superbike Championship until all the best riders are in the series. That very well could happen next season.

Why would Ben go to some second rate GP and ride around in the middle of the pack? More money I suppose. Suzuki must be out of there minds in letting him go. It would be a pity to lose him from WSBK especially to a mediocre series (now) in Motogp. Way to few bikes on the grid and the satellite teams are not remotely competitive. Sure Colin Edwards qualifies fairly well but he is never race competitive as an example.

OK MM66 I assume you mean Mladin when you say the 'best superbike rider in the World' and when did he achieve that status? Outside of the US he's got no credentials at all, its all 'ifs and maybes' and I don't see any 'world champion' tags associated with his name.

At least Spies has the balls to get out and prove himself, and that's entirely to his own credit, not Mladin's.

I agree... Mat Mladin needs to step up. Xerox Ducati, perhaps? Okay, Fabrizio was strong @ Monza, but on the whole he's underperformed. Why not take a chance and pay Mat to ride that bike in 2010?

Just some hypothetical thought candy. :)
