Valentino Rossi back to Honda?
 
Hey folks, found this news about Vale. Considering his poor performance on the Ducs rumor could be true.

Valentino Rossi has asked for a Gresini Honda says Marco Melandri

It would seem silly for him to leave Ducati now, unless the development on next year's bike is not to his liking.

macfly 08-09-2011 10:27 PM

Maybe, but at best he only has a couple more championship years left, and if her really wants to be that GOAT then he needs a couple more crowns.

If he can get Ducati to abandon their fetish for cf and work on what really works, then he will stay with the Duc. He will NOT do a Loris Capirossi and ease off in a gondola. Give him a competitive bike and Jorge and Casey are history.

Why on earth would Honda want him back,with Stoner and Pedrosa and Simoncelli on the back burner,Honda's stance was Rossi won because of their bike and Rossi's was,it's because of him the two ain't never going to meet in middle.

As long as you're talking back-burners, Chris. How your community holding up with the street riots?

the GOAT (greatest of all time) title is already taken.
belongs to ricky carmichael.

unless you want to try and take it away from him.....

pretty sure rossi wouldn't try.

Carmichael is King. I tear up thinking of some of his races I watched...sadly only on the television

Due to lack of fire arms in this country things tend to carry on a little longer :)

...Vale only has so much time, and he and Nicky have been the development mules long enough.
I'm sure Ducati has the classiest swag and parties (imagine the wimmen!).
Nicky might also have a loyalty and so-grateful-to-be-here hang-up where Rossi don't.
Don't fool yourself, he GOAT is all business...

You motocross guys crack me up.
My money's on Villapoto. Innovation is the brother of invention...

"Kidding I said Rossi was looking for a Honda and everyone write it all over… Why I have to always [look] like a bad boy? Let me just race," the factory Yamaha WSBK rider wrote on Twitter.
