Spies' Horribly Unlucky Season...

Here's to a much, much better 2013 Season, even if he does have his work cut out for him on the struggling GP13...

"Always be yourself... unless you suck." -- Joss Whedon

"Anal is just like riding a bicycle... Except without the seat." -Mark Spiegler

If you don't hang your balls out there and just do it, you'll never know what might have happened... -- Valentino Rossi

Unlike one made of concrete, the wall of adversity will eventually fall when we exert enough pressure. -- Max Edge

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." -- Dr. Seuss

Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today. -- James Dean

Re: Spies' Horribly Unlucky Season...

if it wasnt for bad luck he wouldn't have had any luck at all in 2012. Hope he recovers some of his confidence back. He's the only rider not to test his new ride yet. Hope they work some magic at ducati to give him a reasonable bike to start off the season with.

Re: Spies' Horribly Unlucky Season...

Hoping for the best for Spies in 2013! What a brutal season...

On a lighter note, I love his helmets! I own a few! Maybe next year I can make it out to a race and get them signed!

RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.

2012 was a shit season, and I'm definitely hoping for a confidence-boosting season to come. Roll on, 2013!
