+1.......but how much did getting used to the bike effect his riding? I know he wasn't the only one but he seemed to do better later in the year. And it was hard for EVERYONE to compete with the Ducks.

I hear #69 weighs about a million tons less than the #1. Looks like we'll see the old hungry Nicky if pre-season testing is an idicator. Guys is doing marathon sessions in the seat.

Difference between a real champion and a "by way of luck" champion.

Rossi - when given the # 1 plate, accepted it, thanked, yet decided to run #46 as that's what got him there and said # 1 weighed too much - sign of humbleness.

Hayden - even before officially given # 1 plate, had the # 1 plate on, in practice, qualifying and i believe last race aswell, decided to run it the whole season in 2007, humilated - taken back, sign of ....

BLASPHEME!!!!! Lucky has little to do with winning a world championship. Consistency got him that one. Rossi cracked under pressure in the last race.
Rossi is actually too superstisious to change his number if you know the back story.
Did you guys hear Pedrosa is gonna already running the #2 plate?

You can go race AMA if you like - but i suggest try beating us in mini bike racing first .

Do yourself a favor by watching every race of MotoGP in 2006, and have a peice of paper where you write down Rossi's name and then for every race write down "why rossi did not finish 1st?".

You'll end up writing the following: "Tires, Mechanical, Taken out by some racer." - for any race you do NOT write the following, you'll see Rossi podiumed. Oh by the way true champions usually have 5-6 podiums (atleast in the whole season). So yea it was a by the luck championship.

Have fun watching them races..
