Thumbs up Welcome Ben!

It's official:

Ben Spies signs with Yamaha World Superbike for 2009

"American racing sensation Ben Spies has signed up to the Yamaha factory World Superbike Team to partner 23 yr old British rider Tom Sykes for the 2009 season..."

And yes, I'm jealous:

That's what I always think when I see pictures like this- you'd make a fortune if you produced those.

The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be continuous. The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor. A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance.

Duc~ I'm not late with the information as I'm well aware when the announcement was made. I figured since we're talking about Yamaha that maybe, just maybe there should be a post in the Yamaha forum about said topic. Apparently I was mistaken.
