F1 legend Michael Schumacher, who retired from grand prix for the final time at the end of last year, is back on track at Valencia today (Monday) - with two-wheels.

Schumacher, who entered several motorcycle races during his previous F1 sabbatical, has been confirmed as riding a Honda CBR1000RR at the Spanish circuit during a tyre test for the German IDM Superbike Championship (pictured).

Seven time F1 champion Schumacher made his most high profile motorcycle outing - a guest ride on a Ducati MotoGP machine - in a public test at Valencia in 2007.

That test, which marked only his second appearance on a MotoGP prototype, saw Schumi turn heads with a best lap time just five seconds from the MotoGP race record.

However his love of two-wheels has not been without consequences, a neck injury from a two-wheel spill prevented Schumacher accepting Ferrari's offer to replace the recovering Felipe Massa during 2009.
