1- Sorry Eric has gone to Brazil to grow mangos.
2- Glad Ben is going to run Superbike.
3- Looks like Josh broke down (after all that trashing of the DMG system) and signed with his Factory team. You know- the Graves Yamaha team. Now, if Josh could just tell me what the difference is between the Graves team and the Erion team. Seems like Erion is to Honda as Graves is to Yamaha. Erion is surely going to field bikes this season. Anyway, Josh has something to prove and now has a ride. Good for him. Now he's got to live up to his own Hype. You bet we're watching you now Josh!
Yamaha is on board with DMG. Next will be the reluctant Kawasaki. Although, the new system should benefit RL and Hacker. Followed by Blank with his tail between his legs with American Honda. Expect DuHamel and a rider to be named (if it were my team I'd call James Ellison). Then Yosh Suzuki will be last. Mladin will puff out his Superhero chest and declare victory over DMG, but in the end DMG got most of what they wanted and the factories caved more than they wanted. Tommy should be back and I'd look for Geoff May to fill the empty Spies seat.
So, the USA motorcycle universe is slowly watching the planets re-align. Next year will be interesting, but 2010 should see the majority of the paddock bugs working themselves out nicely.
Only 3 1/2 months to go until racing starts. Woo Hoo!

Hayes finally gets a Superbike ride, says he wants to show up Mladin,.... hopefully he does! Can't figure out
Eboz, whats up with that insanity? They should just give him the old ZX750rr and he'll kick some butt on that thing, all day.
