You gave him a "like". I think you are on a good forum if you want people to tell you that you are an arse. I'll participate, if it will ease your pain, and save you money on professional psychoanalysis.

I have been afraid to go back to read responses to my posts on too many occasions. And drinking while conversing online can really get one in porta-potty posting problems. Just a reminder, in case you forget. Also remember that you are never the worst and never alone.

I Ride: The original
The adaptation of the "Wish You Were Here" album cover for Marco at Misano went on sale as a limited edition for 699. I have no idea whether the proceeds went to The Marco Simoncelli Foundation but AGV wasted no time marketing it. Although there is no question that the sentiment was genuine, in my opinion the best thing about it was the fact that its centrepiece was derived from Storm Thorgergson's original artwork as opposed to the usual tacky, tawdry and kitsch Aldo Drudi monstrosity.

Contrary to popular belief, the 2008 Mugello design wasn't supposed to be the face you make when you crest Casanova-Savelli, rather it captures Rossi's expression whenever his accountant updates him on the royalties from his image rights...

And speaking of which, this year's treat is a tribute to Francesco Totti who announced that he will retire from football at the end of this season.

Frankly, I'd be embarrassed...it's shite. Even this was better...

It really does get more cringeworthy every year.

Rossi is ever aware of promoting his brand. This is a tribute to himself using Nicky's good name. Rossi attaching Nicky's number to his brand is opportunistic, sympathy whoring and brand grandiosity.
You sound like an incurable case of omniscience... No surprise, that being you, -- but unless you are in Rossi's head how can you even remotely know his real intentions and feelings? Even to a suspect killer one would leave the benefit of doubt...

Have to agree, with Pink Floyd being one of my favourite bands I couldn't think of a cooler motorcycle helmet design ... mind you I still wouldnt fork out those dollars for an AGV. Reasonable fitting helmets but the quality and wear is very ordinary.

It's rare that I can post something about Rossi without it turning into something negative. I can understand why some feel the way that I feel, I just don't share their opinion. I think it's a good thing we all have different opinions, would be a boring forum otherwise if it was the same post in and out

I have a secret assumption that YouTube are in on the Rossi bandwagon too (sarcasm) / my Rossi and simincelli video is still up (558,000+ views but they've ended up muting the song as someone whinged) however I made a video for a Hayden tribute (wasn't Rossi themed) and the whole thing was taken down. Go figure

It can't just be about Nicky can it? Rossi is a sympathy thief, an honor thief, a limelight thief. I had wondered how Rossi would make this awful tragedy about himself....
Anything he would have done to his helmet you would have attacked him anyway. The '69' is more promnent than the '4' and stick out nicely. If he didn't do anything, you would have attacked him for...not doing anything for Nicky. You use the death of Nicky as excuse and another opportunity to forward your obsession and anti Rossi agenda to attack and rip into Rossi yet again. What does that make you? You're truly a sick individual and need mental therapy.

Missed that Shaunna, have you got it anywhere else (Vimeo, Streamable?)

Would like to see it if possible as if it is like your others, then will be good.
