Looks like Chris and Loris are pleased with the progress of the Suzuki.

Suzuki

This team certainly wins the nice guys award with two likable guys like Loris and Vermi. I wonder if Hopkins will regret not staying with Suzuki by the end of this season. If we are to believe the fabricated fantasy that Kawasaki tried to lure Rossi for 09, then perhaps Team Green has something up their sleeve. I just don't really see either Suzuki or Kawasaki consistently challenging either factory Yamaha or Honda riders. Who knows, but I hope so, it would be nice to see a baby blue and green bike on the podium more often. Maybe the other Italian and Aussie can make news for a change, eh.

It all depends on the new motor. No doubt the present bike handles well but to get to the next level they need a faster machine. If this comes through then their year should be very good. Last year wasn't so bad really.

According to rumors Ben Spies may be going to MotoGP. Riding a Suzuki in a team run by none other than Kevin Schwantz himself. I hope they have a good bike to ride. I also hope Spies is able to adapt to the current bikes.

I like Suzuki do not like their powder blue sponsored Rizla.

Rizla do some other colours why not change it up a little bit.

ATM, the blue 'zooks stand out very well...easy to spot them. if its changed, it will be a lot harder to spot them

The Orange looks really cool


i guess they promote the blue not just because its a destintive colour but because its the one they are pushing commerically the most.

Damn it Frosty, you beat me to it.

But I must add a second rider, and the last name will be Hayden. R or N???? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

^^^Neither, I think two southern U.S. drawls will be enough in the paddock. I am assuming that the Texas tornado will be out of MotoGp by that time.

What has Spies proved... Mladin probably got bored from winning.

Was anyone else in with a chance? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]
