This isn't copying VR , it's just rewards for an amazing season ! I haven't heard about his 4 wheel escapades but I reckon anyone who can lap a track at 200 mph on only 2 wheels , would feel VERY comfy doing it on 4 wheels !
Go for it , enjoy and show these 'cagers' how big you Moto GP riders' cajones are !

Well i do hope he put on a good show, both in 4 or 2 wheels!
As for LCtanner, please dude, get a life and! We get it, you are a big fan of Rossi, but why do you have to keep bringing VR titles up to make you and your hero look good?! Why cant you just appreciate and enjoy a good rider?
I am a Stoner fan but i really like Lorenzo (and all of the other riders as well), so i have the greatest respect for all of them, including Vale!
Just a few more weeks and all your dreams will come true again when Vr jumps on the yamaha (i hope...)

"Schumacher is no mug on a bike"

I'm well aware of Schumacher's performance in the German SBK championship and give him credit for giving it a go, but the top motorcycle racers would be a lot closer to the front in any 4 wheel competition than the other way around. By only competing in a 4 wheel format they imply that is the pinnacle of motorsport. I suspect a lot of 4 wheel racers would be petrified on a bike well below competitive speeds whereas the reverse isn't true. It makes me laugh the way F1 drivers take phrases from motorcycling such as 'tank slapper' or 'he dropped the car' which make it sound as if a mere twitch of the front wheels or spinning into a gravel trap was in any way comparable with the risks/skills of motorcycle racing.

I don't think it's implying that's the pinnacle of motorsport, it's probably because all of them can drive a car where as if you havent ridden a bike before, or have only done briefly, it would be insanely difficult to race one

Surely the safe option would be to stay at Ducati and just keep blaming the bike and just lapping round like Hayden for the next few years.

Rossi has taken a risky option to where it'll show us if he has still got it any more as he faces Lorenzo.

Sebastian for the win.He's too good for the other competitors.I agree though,with that if they were to try this on 2 wheels,there would be a far different result!I'm sure not many have much riding experience,whereas everyone drives a car....

Put them all on small dirtbikes, to keep speeds down, not to scare the car guys too much, and have them race on something like Edwards' boot camp track. should be fun.

In reply to 636stunter. Why you had all the thumbs down I dont know ? But your comment is "DEAD TRUE" i can only guess,that nobody here has any historic knowledge of Moto GP. An excellent point my friend, "Lorenzo" The master copycat!

Rossi hasn't been invited back to ROC since 2001 even though he got in the semi finals or final, can't remember which, in 2000. Lorenzo was invited to race. It is invitation only. So how the hell can he be copying Rossi? If he jumped on a race winning Ducati, made it look like Ronald McDonald's daily transport and went 2 seconds a lap slower than its previous owner he wold be copying Rossi.
