i read comment from furusawa, "i already had 2 bike when rossi arrived, and let him choose which one is the best (including long fork of front part, to absorb chatter). and rossi choose the right one. i though it also, but i still have doubt about 50%-50%. and rossi made me convinced"
WELL DUDE ROSSI'S FANS!!! NOW YOU KNOW IT'S NOT ROSSI OR BURGES THAT DEVELOPTED THE BIKE!!!! IT'S FURUSAWA!!!! rossi only gave feedback, burgess set it up. all the engine etc it by furusawa. he is a genius. again....
"rossi ever call me (when in ducati) to gave opinion about his problem and i gave my opinion cause i still need him to sign his picture (joke)....."
well, he only silence all this time just like burgess! so it's the truth about YOUR GOAT (god of ass talk) RIDER!!!!
now stoner in best bike just like rossi before. if he win this year, all rossi record is nothing if compare from 2006. i'm sure someone here can find it in english interview since my languange isn't english.

Lets have a look what else Furasawa has said about Rossi..
When asked about getting not only Rossi but also his team in 2004, Furusawa explained:
“I hope Jeremy doesn’t misunderstand me, but if I had to choose between the two of them based on the results, I’d say Valentino is more important."
Another little jem here...
Furusawa went on the clarify the truth behind the paddock gossip that wanted Rossi as the person behind the decision of not wanting Casey Stoner in their team back in 2007.
“Valentino never told me that he didn’t like Stoner when we were negotiating with the Australian. He did explain his relationship with Edwards. He never asked me not to hire Stoner, those decisions are left to Yamaha. It was Stoner’s conditions that were unacceptable.”
Thought i would throw that last one in there as i have seen it banded about by the usual haters that Rossi "blocked Stoner" and always thought it was funny

But wasn't Furusawa head of engineering, not Yamaha racing team, so any hiring/firing of riders would not be his decision - Re: Rossi not asking him not to sign Stoner? Although I'm not disputing what he says about Stoner as I have no idea obviously.
He actually prepared 4 bikes for Rossi to evaluate, not an unusual approach for an engineer who has a few design concepts and wants them evaluated. One of the bikes had his new big bang cross plane crank engine fitted, which he thought was the best option - it even dispensed with Yamaha's much lauded and patented 5 valve head design.
Yamaha were sceptical, Furusawa thought it was the way to go and a Yamaha test rider had already confirmed that the smooth engine enabled the bike to be ridden quickly even though it wasn't that powerful and felt slow. This was before Rossi. Rossi then tried it and said the same, proving Furusawa's concept was right.
Still not sure why Rossi seems to take the credit for this. I'd agree though that out of the two Rossi was more important. Furusawa had designed a good basis and they needed a top rider on it, there weren't many then and Rossi was the best. Better to have him on it and no Burgess than a slower rider with Burgess in the garage, as Furusawa seemed well capable of designing and sorting a bike himself.
SO CONCLUSION : ROSSI ISN'T THAT GREAT!!!!! LOL
