Not sure, Loris' deal includes an option for 2009 which will probably depend on how well he can ride on a different bike. But all the talk of extra bikes being supplied seems to have gone away for now, i thought spies would be in a seperate Suzuki team of some kind.

As I said previously, Suzuki have said that they will be running an extra bike for a hell of a long time, and they never do.

Garry Taylor used to announce it every year.

Maybe with a young talent like Spies they'll finally find this extra bike.

Check out this photo ... I always thought Casey and CV were small blokes! Capirex, Elias and Pedrosa MUST be midgets!

My impression of Spies is that he is a big bloke ... ie bigger than CV ... if he is ... how would/could he ride the 800 ... aerodynamics might kill him?!
