I wonder how long it will take JT to get up to speed, given the Wayne Gardner labeled Spies Yammy as "the most difficult bike to ride" (no suprise Sykes wasn't there whole season)

FORMER 500cc World Champion Wayne Gardner has said Ben Spies' title-winning Yamaha YZF-R1 is the most difficult bike to ride on the WSB grid (also tested a Ducati, Suzuki, BMW, Honda and Kawasaki)! "I was very impressed with the Yamaha but it's very difficult to ride. Congratulations to Ben Spies. He did a great job taking that bike to victory!"

They knew he was coming for weeks so it's not surprising they had propper team leathers ready.

Let's hope he doesn't have to test them too much this weekend. :)
