People still listen to pop music despite Michael Jackson being deceased and people still watch basketball despite the fact that Michael Jordan is retired. Fans will still watch GP after Rossi retires, but he will always be considered one of the greats (if not the greatest) like the two people mentioned above. The greatest risk to the future of the series has nothing to do with the riders.....it's the management.

Forusawa only go to Italy because of the first part of the invite.. To wach all the bikes Ducati has him there museum.. Forusawa is free now to aprecited thinghs he like!! I dont have the same respect has i had for Ducati, yes because of the way they waste Rossi time but all people him the World aprecieted the Production models from Ducati.. ALl people enjoy the red mix with Vtwin style is defenatly special and that is part of history and tradicion on Ducati... Forusawa tell that he dont like Ducati GP program like he dont enjoy any other rival offcorse.. But i also bet to all you guys.. For the love he had for engeniring he may buy one Ducati for hoobby just for himself play and try to see if he can make one Ducati a winning bike.. Maybe when Rossi retired they can both make this has a hooby and they will enjoy some laughts and drink some bears.lolo

I don't watch Moto GP any more, it's been boring for years and just keeps going downhill. They need to get rid of the electronics which stop the non factory teams from winning. Get rid of traction control and all the rider aid BS too.

I love the contradictions!
Furusawa is a great guy because he is loyal to Yamaha and not take the money.
How does that contrast with Rossi - hasn't he just followed the money - Honda, then Yamaha, then Duacti, and probably now back to Yamaha.
What price loyalty?

@ Kev

If Rossi were all about the money, he would have defected to Ducati the first time that they offered him a seat. Rossi has been loyal to every manufacturer. He provided multiple championships to both Honda and Yamaha, and went to Ducati - despite the uphill battle that he would inevitably be subjected to - to try and help the manufacturer with the presumption that he'd eventually have a competitive bike. That didn't happen and Ducati has not fulfilled their end of the deal. It's all business, and Rossi is in the business of being competitive.
