I don't know.I do know that they gave away a few.

And Ben is selling both of his race bikes if anyone want it or knows someone the want's a sucsuki.

He is living in Kanas City Missouri right now and that's where the bikes are.

yeah thats the new GSX-R1000, they had a few on display at the GNF that weekend
looks good but kinda bulky looking (its probably really light for a 1000 but sure doesn't look like it is)

Ben's definitely gonna do well in the next few years but I hear he's been hangin around "FourFour" too much lol
