And then. . .

In 2012 Aprilia decides that under the 1000 cc rules they could field a competitive bike.  They bring with them one. . . . wait for it. . . . Max Biagi! 

Imagine a return to the glory days with Max and Vale trading punches on the way to the press conference.  Uh Vale what's with that cut over your eye?   Ese nothing, a mosquito.

Rossi to Ducati

Rossi said a few years ago in his autobiography that when he had the chance to join Ducati from Honda, he saw them as 'too much like Honda' in their approach to work (all regimented and disciplined, with no real atmoshpere of fun) and he wasn't keen on that kind of garage (that's not to say all they did at Yamaha was clown around!!)......... but I think that was when he was romping away with titles and very little in the way of true rivals? Now there are a number of serious challengers and yes, he didn't get his own way regarding what Yamaha did with Lorenzo but that adds to the new goal doesn't it? If Rossi can't beat Lorenzo on the same machinery - Move manufacturers and develop a bike to do it?? Now Rossi is maturing he probably appreciates that the factory Ducati team have to be regimented and disciplined to function?

All I know for definite is that (without rushing this season away) I can't wait for 2011....I just hope we have at least one Brit to cheer on??!!

It is very difficult to explain in just a few words what my relationship with Yamaha has been in these past seven years. Many things have changed since that far-off time in 2004, but especially ‘she', my M1, has changed.

In the beginning we were very happy. We get married and buy nice house in village, she cook very well and house is very clean. Then one day this basta spanaird move in next door. I not like him from the very beginning, he think he so good and he always looking at my M1. Then one day I catch her talking to him in the garden, I get very angry and build big garden wall so she no talk to him any more.

Then one week I go away on business to Bologna and when I come home i catch her in bid with this basta spaniard. "What the hell?" I say "you lousy cheating woman, what you do with this basta spainaird?" And you know what she say, she say "you don't treat me nice anymore, you too old and this man younger and he make me happier than you ever make me. And I know what you doing in Bologna. You the cheating basta. I am leaving you"

"You leaving me?" I say "Screw you puttana, I leaving you! You stay here with your no good lazy spainaird who never do any work and spend all day lying around drinking campari in sun. After all I do for you, this how you pay me back? You dirty puttana"

Then I leave and catch train to Bologna. I take cat with me.
