GEE WIZZ, thank for making that comment and allowing people like me to keep our hands clean.

I have been known to report comments about the sexuality of Rossi, Stoner or any other rider but I think yours falls into the 'just a bit of fun' category.

So then Waz, you're the narrow minded wowser! Lucky you practice what you preach...hehem. Maybe you should change your Login ID to R.Slicker?
Back to the story. Just shows these thai fanboygirls are no different to the rest. Could probably tell you when he had his last session in the brassco, but come to bikes, and they wouldn't know the hydroscolator from the flux capacitor!

I was in Thailand and Malaysia last year aboard an exploration yacht and I was suprised and pleased at the number of Rossi fans. Motorcycles and scooters are a primary source of transport there and I frequently saw people with Rossi-themed rides, I'm sure the replicas will do very well.

I've been a fan since I first saw him in the "Superman" 125 race, I don't speculate on his personal life, he's friendly, fun and the greatest Grand Prix racer ever! :)

Careful Bob or I'll report you too!

Yes, I have reported a handful of what I think have been homophobic slurs against Rossi, Stoner and any other rider whenever I see them, as well as tasteless trash about Stoner's (admittedly tasty) wife, people's personal lives etc. It's up to Crash to decide whether to act on the complaints, but there is no point letting this sort of sh1te proliferate. Do we want the world to think of motorcyclists as a mob of poofter-bashing meatheads?

Rossi should not be surprised at all by his popularity the world over. In this country my receptionist did not know what a Ducati was until I told her its the make of bike I ride,but she knows who Valentino Rossi is. I see old VFR400's adorned in Nastro Azzuro 46 livery. R1's in Fiat 46 livery. The GOOOO!!! 46 livery on R1's is very popular here. Welkom 2004. Ho hum, we've got the FIFA world cup 2010. Maybe Vale can visit our WSBK round on 16th May..I see its an off weekend for him. Maybe use his clout to get us a MOTOGP round again.We've got the facilities and the tracks. mmm, dream on.
