Rossi has not been a huge boost to sales of Yamaha at any point. It's a myth and proven untrue. Who really knows though sales have been down a cross the board in recent times that's a huge factor. I know I didn't get the pani because of rossi. But i do know i don't buy agv dianese because of him

Mark. You might want to do a little fact checking on your stats. I try to post things based strictly on measurable statistic and data collection, not on emotions. To say that Rossi has not been influential in the global profits of the Yamaha motor Corporation is a clear indicator that you and I do not adhere to the same principals. Hiroyuki Yanagi stated verbatim, that "Valentino has been very good for business" Additionally, go do a little research on the impact that the exit of Rossi would have Dorna's bottom line. I Believe the verb that Carmelo used was "significant". I really get that you have absolutely nothing positive to say about Rossi in any way, shape or form but to be completely ignorant of the accuracy of the compiled data makes is rather difficult to engage you in any sort of a rational conversation. Also the fact that you specifically avoid certain brands because of your distain for Rossi paints a rather interesting picture with regard to your psychology. There are some deeply rooted demons in their my friend.
Thanks from youngR

I forgot to add. Other than loosing your mind over Rossi, I really like your other posts and your insight into motorcycles and information in general. Im sure we would get along well as long as we leave #46 out of it.

while i agree with you on the dorna aspect i will post some sales stats. what is yanagi going to say we signed an old has been for sales not to win the championship and he delivers neither?

ok so when rossi left yamaha for ducati, in 2011, Yamaha sales were down globally. However it had to do with rossi, Southeast Asia and the flooding and economic problems going on in the region that the sales decrease was attributed to. Thus when sales picked up it had nothing to do with rossi just a better economic situation.

so basically if rossi wasnt the reason for the decline according to yamaha and they attributed it to economy (maybe they didnt want to look bad who knows) then when the economy got better how can rossi be the reason for the surge.

now if yamaha said rossi leaving was the reason our sales were down globally then i would be all on board when he came back and sales were up. you cant have it both ways.

Simple solution. 2018 Rossi goes to factory Honda replacing MM to finish out his GP stint where he started. Honda sends MM to WSBK to replace Hayden.

im sure we would get along i find very few people i dont get along with. the rossi thing is my personal battle against the drones that dont take anything into account.

if you like rossi great. if you think he is the best all time too great but dont tell me he didnt have advantages things werent slanted his way and he isnt holding a seat from somebody better now.

even worse is the media. they tried to destroy MM so the only successor for rossi now is maverick. nice guy yes but he is really the only one left.

watch the race in jerez listen to the announcers still so joyful as rossi was in 10 but leading the championship by 2 points. hardly a mention about lorenzo and what he did. not a word about honda going 1-2.

i posted on here the links about the obsession with rossi. they were great reads.

if rossi did the move zarco did in texas you would hear what a great move it was and how much fortitude there was to try it.
