Ben Spies leaves Yamaha

It's emerged this afternoon that factory Yamaha MotoGP star Ben Spies will part company with the Japanese firm's team at the end of the 2012 season. In a short statement on Twitter, the Texan, whose achievements include winning the 2009 WSB title, said: "I'm extremely happy to push for the rest of the season to my fans and myself[…] Next year...

I like the sound of that...we definitely need more factories in motogp and if suzuki would give up on the vfour and use a tweaked gsxr engine they could be competitive again. And it would be great to see shwantz back. Personally id like to see rossi ride a factory gresini next year but a factory yam would show everyone that he can still fight for podiums and a few race wins too week in week out

tweaked suzuki, how would that work then and be competetive when spies is on a factory yam one of the best bikes out there still gets beat easliy then ride a none v4 suzuki that will be slower if not worse than a crt aprilia effort, have a word. nice thought tho.

1986vfr750 & Raw

Yeah 86, I have wanted Suzuki to race the i4. Seems to give more connection to us the fans and the productions bikes they make. Suzuki have done well with the racing the i4. 


Raw- would love to see how Hayden goes on the factory Yam. I am not sure how Nicky would perform but after all the shit he has put up with and still maintained his cool he id definitely deserving of the ride. 

ps. I hope Ben Spies hasn't made these comments to piss Yamaha off. It makes Ben look bad and considering the fact that he is performing so badly on the best bike it makes him look silly.

Motoking – speechless;

You see, Ben’s announcement has already had a good result!


When are all of you going to realise that the Factory Yamaha ride is Rossi’s IF HE WANTS IT!
Ben’s thrown his toys out of the pram because Yamaha are waiting on Rossi’s decision.
If he (Rossi) decides that Audi Ducati won’t be competitive for him he will sign for Yamaha.
I feel sorry for Dovi and Carl but that’s business!

Elbows me ole mate, C**T

I can see that English isn’t your first language so I’ll help you out

What YamahaGAYTR said “you are crap retard know feck off too muppet”

In English (sort of) “You are a crap retard now fuck off” (which is saying I’m bad at being a retard, thank you)

What he wanted to say inside “I know I was wrong about Spies and I’m sorry to everyone, if I ever got the chance I’d love to sniff Spies seat and my dream is to wear the crotch of his leather’s over my face for a full day”

If Rossi get’s on the Yam next year I’m going for the big yellow man as champ!

Or maybe Marquez????? : )

Elbowz..Elbowz...

No one likes a bad loser...You set yourself up for this with all that pre season posturing with, what was it?..."the 1000's are gonna be the making of Spies", "He's gonna own the Tech 3 guys" etc...etc...etc... Don't make it any worse for yourself eh?
