Funny thing is seems like Vermulan starts making results at the end of every year? Scaried about future employment? Is it becuase he perfers those track better? Anywho, I dont think either will make that much of an impression with that bike.

Sadly, Suzuki boss (Denning) made a crutial error in judgement. Loris must be riding for free. Why would you pick a guy that hasn't won a race for two, maybe three, seasons over a 23yo American Superstar that wins 8-10 races a season for the last three seasons. If the rumors are true American Honda said it would pay Ben's salary to get him on a Honda. Reality is, the best ride in racing is Troy's Xerox Ducati. Ben would be an instant hit on the 1098R.

Because he's one of those Stinking Capitalist American Pigs that voted for the Great Satan Bush in the last election?

I woulda canned Vermulan and had Capparossi mentor him for his first year or two.

Wonder what Bens asking for in the means of a salary, heard it was very high.
