I am a Kawasaki / Ducati guy and really want the Ducati team to bring in another title, but I really like Spies and want him to represent! I will be pulling hard for him too. :thumbsup:

Broc Parkes put the ZX-10R in the top 10 which is pretty good too! I am interested to see how long it takes BMW to get up to pace

1. free practice doesn't mean a whole lot

2. i dont care for spies or his overbearing mom

3. i don't think the FIM will screw Haga over with some BS points penalty
like the AMA did Mladin so spies doesn't have much of a chance

4. err...wait a second, maybe the FIM would screw Haga over. They already
did once in 2000

5. i can't wait for the racing to get started

is speed the only place to view wsbk?
On TV, yes Speed is the only place. However, on the internet, you can go to their website on watch the races a day or two later for free (But yuor computer needs to updated w/ the latest adobe player and media player, broadband and have at least 512ram- so you wont have any hiccups).

Very impressive of Biaggi and Corser to get brand new machines so high on the grid. :notworthy

And 7th isn't too bad for Spies considering a new machine, new tires, and new tracks....

Not bad for a yank though

Spies won the 1st ever knockout Suerpole. And Americans want to hate this kid. I don't get it. I mean don't care for Suzuki at all. And in AMA, I dont care for the Rockstar team. But its like when I hated Jordan and the Bulls back in the day. But when it was Olympic time- you damn right I wanted him and Magic to whoop some foreign ass. Same situation here. I feel he has the ability to be up there with fellow Americans Scott Russell, Freddie Spencer and so on. I'm not a Yami guy either, but I want Spies to win it all. USA, USA
