Spies to Yamaha WSB

They finally made it Official.

http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2008/Oct/081001b.htm

Bikes: '88 EX250 (sold), '86 Nighthawk S (sold), '03 ZX7R (R.I.P.s), '07 ZX10R (sold)

I don't like repeat offenders; I like dead offenders.
My idea of 'gun control' is putting as many bullets as I can into the same hole.

- Ted Nugent
Iím all for gun control, I just define it a little differently. If you can put 2 rounds into the same hole from 25 meters, thatís gun control!
- Jesse Ventura
God gave man a brain and a penis, but only enough blood to run one at a time. - Stephen E. Ambrose

I was also hoping for moto gp because he did so well, but SBK is great too, he will do well i think and it will be nice to finally get an American over there who can win. Yamaha looked good this year so hopefully they continue to be competitive with the new machine.

no doubt that both are very talented riders but neither have been tasked to develop a bike/team....and with the Yamaha being a new bike in 09 it should be interesting....hopefully interesting enough that speed channel won't delay the races to long...actually this years coverage of WSB has been the best i can remember with only the supersport races being delayed till tuesdays....already looking forward to next season!

Well, it's not what he wanted but at least it's a step in the right direction...hopefully.

I'll be cheering for him.

I was hoping he would go to Team Xerox Ducati as Bayliss' replacement, but Haga got it. Not to bag on Haga though, he is an excellent rider. Fabrizio though could be replaced and no one would notice, so could have went that way. Well as it is said, woulda, coulda, shoulda.....................

That wouldn't work. Can't run the 990cc engines now that the limit is 800cc.
