I think Vale and I would be buddies if we ever met. We seem to have similar personalities. This is something I would totally do if I could personalize with my face.

I would even rock it with his face, but at $750, I want an American Fender Stratocaster, and I can pick one up for less than that... also, Jamie won't let me get another helmet... I have 4 already and she says my head doesn't need more protection... haha.

Yea, Valentino is a fantastic guy. I'm gonna try and watch a lot more MotoGP this year. I found an Italian website that has a huge thread devoted to him, if ya want it.

You might try http://www.fasterandfaster.net and search for interviews with him there, I know they have a lot on him as well. It's a great site.

Sure, send the link to the site...

Also, I got the movies... in the winter, they get watched about once every two weeks for a small bike fix... since I have not thrown my leg over one since October.

Aggreed. I've never seen another rider that can charge through the pack on such a consistent basis. I'd have to say that Vali is the Micheal Jordan of Motorcycle racing.

I'm just curious, for those of you that follow MotoGP or any other Motorcycle racing, how you follow the races? ie. TV, internet, torrents, blogs, mags

I usually down load (torrents >:D ) the races and watch them when I have time.

http://www.motorradonline24.de/index.php scroll down to motorsport and there's a Rossi thread. I haven't watched a race live yet, I've been watching clips of earlier races from several different websites as I learn more about the sport and the riders. I'd love to get a schedule of the races and try to catch em as they happen though. Are they ever live on the speedchannel?

I watch them on Speed and went to Indy this year for the race.

I did not follow SBK that much, but i think I'll get more into it.

My wife and I went to Indy too last summer Berto, we sat way down in J stand but they were actually really good seats. That was the first race of any kind that either of us have ever been to. We had a blast even though the weather was torrential.

WSBK is a great series. There races are often a lot closer than in MotoGP. Should be a good season this year with lots of tallent comming over from the British Super Bike series, which by the way is also another awsome series to watch, highly recommended if your into motorbike racing.

Cool... I am looking forward to it.

I don't remember where we sat... I know it was in front of Rossi's Pit Garage... The rain sucked, but overall I had a good time. Don't know if I'll do it again, it was simply to costly. Also, on TV i can pause it and watch it in better comfort.

Maybe we can do a 2WM ride to watch the race, but I'd buy GA tickets this time.

Has anyone ready "What if I'd never tried it?" the Rossi Autobiography?

Pretty good read.
