I Ride: Your mom on most days.
If that's what tickles your jimmies in the morning, you don't really have much going for in your life.

My condolences.

Edit let's add: 2006 mistake under pressure, 2007/2008 ultimatum of give me Bridgestones or I will retire, 2010 ultimatum of favour me over Lorenzo or I'll leave, 2012 ultimatum of if I have to stay at Ducati I'll retire, 2015 total meltdown. Bwing petulant and entitled doesn't mean you're mentally strong, most don't get their own way in doing so. If Rossi had to put up with what Stoner did, he would've been gone a long time ago and if given stoner second rate machinery through 125s, 250s and as he entered the premierclass he might not have ever won a championship.
Maybe Rossi can write a book titled “What if someone had told me no”
