My wife, Mackenzie, and I can’t be more pleased with Valentino Rossi’s decision to move from Ducati at the end of the 2012 season to Yamaha for a 2 year contract.

Rossi first joined Yamaha in 2004 and won 4 championship titles (2004, 2005, 2008 & 2009). Rossi’s move to Ducati was an interesting move. Rumors had circulated that Rossi wanted to retire after winning a championship with Ducati but issues with the Ducati frame and suspension has held Rossi back and presently resides in 8th in the Championship standing.
