The boy's only a couple tenths off the leaders. Funniest statement was that he couldn't understand why the AMA R1 couldn't win since they get technical help from Europe. The AMA bike is bad enough to make EBoz go grow mangos in Brazil, but Spies can ride the wheels off the Euro bike- go figure.

Was reading about his success today, man Suzuki F-up.

Very impressive times considering no one has really raced their before this past weekend. I see hugh things coming for him,as long as he stays healthy.

Spies on the money again, Day 2 testing at Portimao. This time on the new bike.

The new R1's exhaust note, and engine growl are odd, similar the sound a V4 grunt? Or at least thats what it seemed like at Indy.
