Yes, an emotional decision just like Rossi’s when he left Yamaha for Ducati. I believe he would have become the unquestioned number 1 rider again, Rossi continues to demonstrate even he can’t fight Father Time, and the bike would likely have swung back his way which it may have done now anyway.

I don’t think I or anyone else expected him to prosper at Ducati, but there was some bad luck or at least bad timing, if he had started to perform even a month earlier he imo likely would still be at Ducati riding competitively.

He retires a top 10 premier class rider all time imo, and I came to admire him mostly because of his sheer grit. I am glad he knew when to retire, staying at HRC offered him few prospects other than further injuries, again imo.

Yes, he came back from being Mr Highside and multiple concussions in his rookie year in the premier class in 2008 to win 3 titles. True grit as I have said.

I was sincerely hoping not to see JL hang up his helmet on such a low note. Ah well.....

It's been entertaining watching the sport while he competed. All the very best JL.

I just watched the press conference. Great stuff - JL has honest as ever and obviously respectful attention from his fellow riders.

Except from Marquez who had his face half hidden in his jacket, looked sooo bored and fidgeted throughout the whole thing.

What in the fuck are you on about? This has zero to do with the conference held today.

Are you fucking stupid? If Marc appears bored. How does Jorge looked in the HRC 60th anniversary presentation? You make a comment about how one rider appears to be. And when hit with Jorge doing the same you respond with rubbish.They are both in attendance in a important meeting. It does correlate. No wonder why this forum is going down hill. You have single handedly driven away a lot of good members over the years with your one sided point of view.

Just so you know, it is cold in Valencia Spain this time of the year. Not defending Marc, just saying....
