Especially considering how far back the other "new" bike (BMW) finished.

I can't help but laugh when Haga says, "Oh. he 24, me 34, 10 yrs, he's so faster."

Phew. Sorry I'm late. Just got done watching race 2 last night.

Wow.....Spies is real. No doubt now.

I did question is abilities while he was in AMA, since he was on the GSXR. But after 3 race wins and 2 superpoles back to back in WSBK, going up against some of the greatest names in motorcycle racing history, on tracks he has never been to before, on a bike that he hasn't even had 6 months on/with a brand new motor I might add. Geez....

I mean, not only did he beat Haga and Biaggi, he dusted them, like they were new to the sport.

The Yamaha looks soo stable, even with his big muscling it around.

I've got the feeling it's going to be all TEXAN this year in WSBK.

He certainly has a bright future ahead of him on the world stage. MotoGP will be interesting to see him in, depending on what team he lands with.

Most importantly, I think his success his saying a lot about how far the sport has come here in the US and that we still have the ability to pump out great riders, and will most certainly continue to do so.
