Re: The Ben Spies Prediction Contest

Hello everyone, my first post here so here goes. :D I am a Ben Spies fan and can't believe the problems he has encountered this year. With his move to Ducati next year I hope he will be competitive, might take a while but I think he will get there. This weekend, I think he will have a great weekend...

Re: Silly season 2013

I would love to have a time/date coded chain of events on how Ben went from Factory Yamaha (capitalized Factory because they don't have a sponsor, which would be capitalized, and I'm just going to give it to them like that) to Junior/Pramac Ducati. At Indy he was adamant that he was taking his butt ...

Re: The Ben Spies Prediction Contest

Also, I need advice from my moto brethren...

How uncool would it be to get a Ben Spies autograph on my already Rossi signed Ducati hat?

Thoughts?

Re: 2012 Round 12 Brno Race Topic ***Spoilers***

The meme of "Bike was built for Dani" has been debunked but the idea still persists. As RB pointed out, Dani hated that bike. There is a video from last year of Dani comparing the Honda bikes in the past and when he sat on the tiny 800 bike he didn't have any good words to say about it. He has alway...

That would be such a step back as to redefine the words ridiculous, stupid, short-sighted....and I certainly don't see Spies' picture next to any of those words in Webster anytime soon. I don't ...

Re: Ducati goings on. Part 2.

I don't think that Dorna is paying Rossi's salary either - they might be chipping in but they are not footing the bill. Yamaha was said to have required Rossi to bring a sponsor in order to return, and I believe it. Do you have anything that supports any of this? Why would Yamaha leave? They just s...
