Great job hopefully Rossi can do some decent stuff before he leaves. It shows though that the Engeneers are the secret behind Rossi succes. All Rossi have to say and do is to say if it is betteer than the old one, thats not any R&D from Rossi:) pure Engeneering skills on this goes with all the bikes Rossi have been riding, and he is fast but developer????

MotoGP 2012- The Year of the Excuse Series 2
By popular demand comes Year of the Excuse series 2, the follow up of the 2011 hit "Its the bike not me year of the excuse"

Featuring the cast of disappointment Starring Rossi as the slow rider, JB as the confused engineer and Uncle Cam as the panicking promoter

Thank god come 2013 we wont have to hear excuse after excuse for poor performance from Rossi

(insert crowd cheer here)

Or will we........

(insert gasp, crowd look of concern and panic here)

Nah, Yamaha will make sure that doesn't happen

(insert cheers all round)

a doctor can treat the illness of his patient and sometimes can't.the doctor 46 treat yamaha and honda well but cannot for you remember that jesus didn't make one miracle in his country,it was because people there don't believe and that is why he says no one is prophet in his own kingdom.
Maybe dovi will succeed where rossi failed?the future will tell.

People can say what they want about Valentino Rossi because as the end of the day he has done what every single rider on the race track desperately wants to do -win world championships!! Nobody there has won as many as he has and nobody is likely to. Nicky Hayden won 1, Casey Stoner has won 2 and Jorge Lorenzo has so far won 1. Valentino has won 7 in the big league - 7, and 9 in total. It doesn't matter what anybody says, racing is about winning, winning championships, that is the whole point, or why would they all be doing it!!! Every single rider there would give anything to have the success Valentino has!!
Valentino Rossi is a legend and he still has a lot to give. Just enjoy while you can because once gone, MotoGP will never be the same, ever!!

@herewego Well said m8

All riders need someone that can build one good bike to be WC!! Not only Rossi, but Rossi can have been with good bikes not allways the best but good bikes but he allways deliver the results!! Records are Records.. This kids stil have a lot to prove, lets see if Lorenzo can make this type of races for all is carear 1 or 2 place.. Its not that esay!! Loke at Stoner is esay to Win on the best bikes, maybe when he said that he lost one big oportunity to shat up because now does not seem that esay!! Rossi to been able to make all this WC only proves is mind and the love he had for the worck is professionalism.. We can t say much more only this, him history only 2 riders show up has the big Winners of Motogp and you know who are the riders.. Now you guys can say all the bullsht you whant

Hahahahahahahaha and thats from a fan thats been watching motor cycle racing from the early seventies.I'm a Rossi fan but most of all a fan of motor cycle racing.Rossi does not ride in WSB BSB IOM MotoX endurance racing trials speedway et cetera but they all remain a great spectacle in them selves.When Rossi has gone there will be another racer that will come along to entertain,will he entertain like Rossi or Schwantz or Sheen or or or or...

@the beast

Yes it was Aprilia Cube, Also Suzuki and Kawasaki never perform has expect for factory Brands!! The only failure with Ducati and Rossi is that Ducati dont manage to build what is need.. Some say Time some Brain.. I think its both reasson mix together!! But defenatly was not a failure they are racing and making what they can.. you can say failure to what happen this year to Casey, having the bike to win and not win the WC is a failure yes.. Every year Manufactrs tryto build somethingh to win the WC but Motogp is a bit like football you have big Team and Small teams but aim shure that the first intencion of one small Team is to try to keep fighting on the premier league but the big Team whants to Win all without excuses
