I would say it would be rather hot for a passenger.
Do you think Hayden has it in him to stay with Rossi this year. The competition seems to be leveling out.

I thought Rossi was heading to F1? Is that still happening??

Any time Rossi's on the track, he's the man to beat. Doesn't matter how quick everyone else goes in practice.

Rossi's as close to God as a bike racer could be.

I know Rossi took some rides but never heard if he was making the change.

For the record I would just like to point out that I ....... Legend ..... made the Ledgendary prediction the Pedrosa would be the big thing this season ......

And ... I did this against Arm Chair General Number One ..... (Big Phil) arrrruffffff !!!!

Now then ..... Rossi was 'reported' to be going to F1 possibly in 2007 ... however, Pedophil will give him such a run for his money in 2006 that all past records will be broken and most will review their view that Rossi is as much of a Legend as me ....

So ... all his past glories will be tainted ... and he will have to come back again in 07 just to make a point ... owww ... we are in for a great season or two .. or three :-)

Roll up, roll up

Best result there has to Hopper riding the nail Ellison also looking good Would be nice to see a brit or even half a brit doing reasonably well for a change.
Back to reality, Pedrosa has to be a serious challenge but still think Rossi will be hard to beat.

don't be too quick to judge

I wanna see Pedro in the pack in turn one. My boy haydon has allways been quick but it has taken him the best part of 2 seasons to consistantly be at the front. We'll see.

Rossi ...mmmmh The only place to go when you're at the top is????.
He's been world champion so many times now and has kicked everybody arse this year on a slower bike I think he's proved his point

Last time he tested F1 at the Ferrari test track he was less than 1 second slower than Schummi's best ever lap there and you have to take your hat off to that.

I'm not a big Rossi fan but would like to see him stay with bikes and maybe do '07 on a duke then bugger off to cars.

No Baggi, Barros and Gibblet testing !!!!!!!!!

Early days yet, but...

Biaggi doesn't have a ride, Barros is prob. in getting a hip replacement and Gibblet wouldn't be out of the mental ward from last years beating

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
