No doubt Rossi will go down as one of the greats. Now he will struggle against Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Marquez and even a few others. If thats the case he should mve on to something else. Would hate to see him humiliated.

The so-called greatest of all time on the championship winning bike, his bubble has already burst so anything less than the championship and he legend is dust.

He is the GOAT so anything short of WC only highlights he is weak and no goat.

Maybe the sign of success could be in the limited excuses his fans come up with, but that won't work as they have already started. Honda best bike, he hasn't been on it for two years etc etc.

Didn't a guy join Honda and win the WC in his 1st year with the bike so Rossi with his amazing talent can as well.

Ahh well, he had Spies pushed out so he has won something, total loss of respect from the paddock for his part in that game and that is well known.

Pity motogp awards the cheaters and kills the skill but hey that's big business

Rossi will be very successful. He can even challenge for the title. He's going back to a familiar bike. It's like getting with an ex girlfriend. He should now what she likes and doesn't like. Rossi was trying to go backdoor the first date with his Ducati, and that just got everything off track right away. Anyways the sport is far better when Rossi is winning.

Well when the last Factory Ducati rider moved to a Japanese Factory bike, he got 10 wins, 16 podiums in total, 12 poles, and won the title.

If Rossi is the GOAT like some suggest, then surely he should be able to at least match that when moving to the championship winning bike, right? After all, the guy has 7 titles compared to the guy who has 'only 2', right?

His fans keep banging on about how Rossi is so much better than Stoner, so lets just wait and see shall we!?!?!

Remember, 10 wins, 16 podiums and 12 poles.

Im sorry to break this to you, but Rossi has already been humiliated for the last 2 years by not being able to live up to the standards of King Casey.

Ducati won races for 6 years on the bounce until Rossi joined, where it went straight down the pan.

Hopefully, Dovi, Hayden, Spies and Ianonne still stand a chance of trying to get Ducati back to the front. Hopefully Rossi hasnt done too much damage.

rossi 3 in a row on a honda ,casey just the 1! rossi 125 250 500 800 990 2 stroke four sroke aprillia yamaha honda ,suzuka 8 hr,stoner spanked by the spainish in 125 250 ,lorenzo since 06 4 time world champ stoner shouldnt even be in the same convo
