Default We already knew that

....when he told Ferrari that he'd stay in Motogp, and also with Alonso's statements too.

He didn't decide this based on F1. Yamaha needs someone that they can rely on to get the 800 cc bike developed before racing begins next season. What you're not hearing is the fact that he is now the weathiest motorsports racer in the world. Yamaha ponied up the big bucks to keep him one more season.

More than Schumacher? I wonder what Alonso's going to pull down next year.

It's because of the advertising...

I'm glad to hear it. Who else will keep Pedrosa at bay?

Rossi and Capirossi on the Red at Mugello! Too perfect.

Just a question. Why are they going to 800cc bikes when the strett uses 1,000cc machines? The only 800cc I know of is a Honda Interceptor. Although a great bike, I do not think they will be raced anytime soon. And I loved the 1,000cc bikes in all classes they are used.
