Rossi to Yamaha?
hmmm, wonder if it is true? I bet Jorge is shopping for another wall as I type this.

According to Rossi, we'll know before Indy. And Spies to BMW WSBK? Who's going to fill Rossi's spot if he leaves? Crutchlow? Where will Dovi end up in all of this? Will edwards move back to Tech 3? Will the CRT biles in 2013 be piloted with lab monkeys? Stay tuned as Silly Season 2012 continues to entertain!!!

A straw-poll of MotoGP journalists showed that most believed Rossi would make the switch back to Yamaha in MotoGP but believed that Rossi should stay at Ducati to finish what he started....
Finish what? Butting heads?

Good for Vale, I'd like to see him be on a competitive machine again.

seems to be done deal according to BBC and Speed w/Yamaha welcoming statement.
2 questions now:
Who will ride the Ducati?

After probably paying that much for Rossi how will Yamaha handle having him and Jorge on same team?

me and a acquaintance at my work were pondering and came up with a truly evil spin on this rumor........

rossi funded by yamaha with factory bikes (not tec3) .....accompanied by....SPIES as a separate team.

Nope. Go back and read the official press release from Yamaha. Either via the link I posted, or from any other source. Rossi and JL on the factory squad.

I seriously doubt we'll ever see Spies on a Yamaha again.

Rossi has turned into quite the lower, since he left Yamaha. It must mean it's the bike, not the rider.

Uh FFF, He won what? 3 championships on a Honda before his Yammie time....,remember???
Oh and then there were some more on Aprilias before that. And the Yamaha was a mess before him and Burgess got ahold of it. But yea, Yamaha has kicked butt in Motogp. 2 or 4 stroke. So your Av-like fanaticism has some validity....,

But yea its the bike....,Ducatis MotoGP bikes suck...,except that one time lol

Even nicky-fucking-hayden won on a Honda. That was the year Honda bought the world championship for him. Half of all the bikes on the grid were on their pay roll, putting up an impenetrable wall for the weak kid.

Honda does make decent race bikes, but it never trickles down to their street bikes. They don't make a no holds barred super sport, always a good performing sport tourer that gets reworked for racing so grandpa will buy one, too.

The refreshed CBR1000RR is winning all the magazine shootouts with no real new technology on it, but solid engineering...is that not good enough?
