    Yes, Spies to Suzuki because I beleive he is the guy to FINALLY turn things around for them. Just like Ricky Carmichael turned things around for Suzuki in American motocross. They should bring on Kevin Schwantz as team manager while they are at it too. Just my $.02.

    Spies to the Suzuki squad ((( I don’t think SO ))) ..Suzuki lost Spies. Very dum dum on Suzuki’s part. He would NEVER ever go backwards. .LOL. I do wish Sukuki would bring a bike to Moto GP It would make it funner to watch. Rossi will be back next year with some thing to prove.

    Why would anyone want Ben Spies to go to Suzuki??? Don’t you like the guy? Everyone knows that there are three teams to be in for MotoGP, and as the seasons pass, that becomes more and more the case.

    Lorenzo will be the one to catch with Rossi out. Spies will probably have at least one podium this year and would be a good replacement for Rossi if he goes F1.

    A shame about Rossi. That many years and that many races the odds weren’t with him. The video available on the official web site was a bit distant but I don’t recall ever seeing such a sudden high side. His hyper competitiveness will probably bring him back but age and a vision of mortality just might make him consider F1 where his chances of winning would be far far lower along with expectations. It would be an easier life in many ways and just as lucrative and the glow of being with Ferrari and being Italian………… well, it would be a beautiful thing.

    Hmm, looks like Honda the “Sleeping Giant” has finally woken up. I know they got a lot of key people from other teams in the off season so maybe it is beginning to pay off for them. Honda would be wise to make hay while they can with Rossi gone. Now with Rossi a big question mark, maybe Spies will have a shot at getting on the factory Yamaha. I’d rather see Spies eventually wind up on the factory Suzuki squad–those boys have needed rejuvination for what seems like eons.

    I generally like the new look, but I definitely do not like the spoilers leaking through the preview text! Maybe there’s a way to turn off previews for results posts?

    Just my $.02,
