  • "Riding a race bike is an art - a thing that you do because you feel something inside." There's more to Rossi's line of thinking than this one quote, but I get his perspective.

    Riding a motorcycle, especially a sport motorcycle, is like breaking free of gravity. It allows me the motion, speed, and freedom I don't normally have. (Damage from other sports does make life interesting.) Once I "feel" the balance of a motorcycle and get a sense of how it will react, it becomes a part of my thought process, almost an instinct.

    The practical side of me pipes in every so often. Yes, it's a nuisance having to gear up, to have special clothing, to be exposed to the environment. It's not really practical, when you get down to it. But, except for art/photography, not much else gets me that focused, "inside my head", like riding. OK, mountain driving, too. Maybe horseback riding.

  • Said by the biggest MotoGP clown? I honestly think that quote came from one of his own turds.
