From memory he turned down $15M to race for one season. More than Honda had ever offered anyone to race for them - F1 included.

Let's not forget that he made the Ducati competitive... So how fast is this bike really going to be? Competitive with Marquez on board or competitive with Bradl/Bautista on board?

I think Yamaha also remember Misano 07 when they rushed a new engine to Rossi in an attempt to counter Stoner and Ducati running away with the title. Cue engine failure and Rossi's chances of winning...

Absolutely agree. I'd love to see Cal on a 3rd factory Yamaha but that just isn't going to happen right now. No point Cal holding out for something he knows won't materialise.

Cal had the choice of either riding for Tech 3 for a little money (relatively) and never winning a championship, or riding for Ducati for a lot more money and never winning a championship. You all go...

If by some miracle Rossi is in with a shot at the title, I'd expect VR & MM's relationship to cool rapidly. Being friendly with Rossi does not last through a title fight. Would love to see a 4 way...

Regular top five finishes and a race win here and there is exactly how he won his 2006 WC. I'm a fan of Hayden but the game has moved up a notch or two. I think now is his time to go be Ducati's hero...

Lorenzo risks serious injury every time he gets on a MotoGP bike and rides. Why would he not ride at Assen due to the risk of serious injury? If that risk was going to stop him at Assen it would stop...

Rossi fans are hardcore Rossi fans. That is all. I was at Misano in 07 when he had engine failure a few laps into the race. Half the crowd went home. There was a sea of yellow pouring out the gates...

I know you can get similar stuff from Bunnings. It's all modular, so you buy whatever height rails you want, then fit the shelves/hanging rails/drawers to it.

Riiiiiight. Rossi had better hand back the 09 title then, given Stoner missed so many races through illness. Oh, and while we're at it, Rainey can give up his 92 title because Doohan was out injured...

He must be doing something right. After all, he's managed to convince someone else to pay him to ride GP bikes for the last 13 years. I wish my riding career was that unsuccessful!

How many times was this said early in 2011? How many years do Rossi/Ducati get? After all Rossi is a development genius, right?

The notion that Stoner can only win on the best bike is crap.

In 07 Stoner finished 1st, Capirossi 7th, on the same bike.

Snakes?

I understand why you'd want to carry a firearm for protection against bears and such. But snakes? Do people actually pack a handgun in their kit when heading bush with snakes in mind?
