I remember Ben tearing it up in WSBK. New tires, new team, new tracks, no problemo!

What's the point? As much as I like him, he won't be any more competitive in WSBK then Vale in GP. Yet you want Rossi to hang the boots up...

Just my 2 cents.

I agree. Ben should not return. Nothing to add and Rossi should retire at the end of 2018. When his contract expires.

how do you know he wont be competitive? if hes not they will get rid of him. my point with rossi is different. he isnt competitive and they wont get rid of him (not a contender)
