I don't think it would be to far off to say Ben could be part of the aliens up front. He may just be a superbike rider, but he dominated unlike other transfers such as edwards, hayden, towesland, etc. Ben has that special spark that we see in riders like Lorenzo, Stoner, etc. And he has a good head on his shoulders. At the least he will be top satelite rider next year, at best he could be the occasional podium finisher. Plus he is being smart about setting up the bike. He knows he needs to adjust his style. Motogp needed another star rider and I think they just got one.
