Valentino Rossi talks about the Yamaha M1 from 2004-2010

Quote:
The "Yamaha Chapter" of the Valentino Rossi Story was a highlight for both brands: the man and the company. Rossi arrived at Yamaha near the end of the 990 Era, and helped make a silk's purse out of a sow's ear. He turned an also-ran into a title-winning machine, and he helped Yamaha make a seamless transition into the 800 Era. All in all, it was an amazing seven-year relationship filled with race wins and world championships.

In this terrific video, listen to Rossi provide his one-of-a-kind perspective on his stable of YZR-M1 racebikes. He speaks lovingly of each individual machine and provides rare insights into what made each one special

I'm actually impressed that he remembers that well.

It is an integral part of his life he developed those bikes, motogp riders even the ones that suck are superhuman in alot of ways. Rossi is probably the greatest gear head/driver the world has ever known. Why would him remembering things about bikes surprise you?

Because you'd figure that he'd expend so much effort developing the current bike that he'd forget what he did on a bike 5 years ago. I can't tell you all the mods I had on the gsxr 750 I was riding back in '05, and I for sure haven't had a new bike every year since.
