I'm just bored and high, and dont have anything else to do, but what about some sort of Jordan, suzuki, spies collaboration with a satellite team in motoGP in a couple years.
It's far fetched, but maybe not that far.
Jordan is a sponsor magnet, he's become quite the motorcycle enthusiast, and I know he's got an admiration for spies

just to get a discussion started

It would be interesting to see but Jordan has had enough problems with Suzuki.

The AMA treated him like an unwelcome addition to the grid, but I'm sure MotoGP would to have him on board. He probably even more well known than Rossi. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

Jordan has some ties with Ducati as well. I'd expect him to make a deal with KR, Ducati, and Spies before he tried anything with Suzuki.

He has the money to finance everything himself if needed.

Great idea. But he'd have to be competitive. Like Gresini 2005 type competitive. A race win contender, and I am not sure with Suzuki that is possible. He hates how the AMA is right now as no matter how mucch he puts in, he still will be bottom top 10 at best.

He sounds like a bit of a dick to be honest, i agree he would need a better bike than Suzuki who haven't managed to win a DRY race since Kenny Roberts Jnr.

Also i don't think Spies is the man for the job, would he support someone else non american with more experience?
