Okay, I watch too many movies.

Explosions and tittys would be abundant if I wrote the script.

I would much rather see Haga win it on a Japanese bike. The Japanese people deserve their own champion.
Did anyone mention that Ben is a Texan????...Go Ben!!

I'd like to see Spies win it. With Spies in MotoGP next year, Haga can win WSBK next year as long as he can hold off Fabrizio.

I highly disagree with you. Haga is a demon on magny, ducs setup on portimao was set by super bayliss so no excuse there

Now, either way i will be happy. Spies had done so much this year, Haga has done a lot in many years and is riding the duc!!!! Now if haga wasn't riding the duc i will say spies 100% BUT like i said either way it goes i will be thrilled, just hoping for good battles

I hope to see Ben win it I think he is a better rider.

when you think about it Edwards and Haga have been on the same team a number of times with Edwards almost always out doing Haga by a good bit so Ben better be better then Haga if he wants to keep up with his new team mate.

There is the Valencia GP race after the last SuberBike race. Will Tech 3 have a spare bike for Spies?

wow, they still have supporters............

Back to Haga and Spies, may the best man win...........
I hope Spies can a little more help from Sykes
I wish Fabr didn't have that extra 200cc

I agree with you that Haga has provided so many years of exciting racing, has been a very tough competitor and yet still a very humble and nice guy. He is also very very talented riding a motorcycle, and is always exciting to watch.

This year is Spies though, To come out in your rookie season on a new bike and put down the performances that he has, it is his year. In exception to a few unlucky events (running out of gas, and Fabrizio) Spies has dominated. If those two races would have ended like they were going before the bad luck, The championship would be all but wrapped up for Spies at this point.

I do admit though, after this year when Spies wins the championship and heads to MotoGP, I would like to see Haga come back and win the championship.

Spies deserves it, GO TEXAS!!!!
I can't argue with any that
