, he's just too much of a stubborn ass, he has definately got (had) the speed to race in WSBK, or maybe even GP's earlier in his career, he has been content to stay with Yosh here in the USA for several years, just like Duhamel got over the years. But as bad as racing is gonna be this year, might be his last.

Mat enjoys racing in the US and has said before that the competition is just as good here as it is over there (he was obviously right). and like stated earlier he doesnt have too many people cheering for him overseas.

He will now! Matt is an arrogant asshole and he thought if he went to WSBK he may loose and would have to eat some humble pie! Ben tested the wasters, he saw how ben did and now knows he would do good ......MARK MY WORDS...he will be there soon!

Over the years I think there's been several reasons he's stated to not go to wsbk. Early in his ama career, there was no interest from wsbk teams, later there was no interest from him (the ducati cup years when wsbk went to single tire rule and all jap factories dropped out). And now I see most teams thinking he's too old to invest the $,$$$,$$$.00 he would require. I don't think they pay anyone over there the amt he makes here. Although after watching qatar, I think suzuki could definately stand to dump one of their riders and hire him, or even ducati fire Fabrizio. & now I think he wants to stay here to win every race this year to show dmg that no matter how much they dumb/slow down a superbike, he's still going to dominate. Although it's doubtful he'll be racing anywhere when his current contract expires. I think he'll retire.

I don't think he would ride anything but a Gixxer, and I don't see Yosh having the funds to switch to WSBK, so theres no way hes going anyway, I think he will retire after this season, especially if this season is a total flop which looks like it will be with no TV coverage.
