Ex-F1 God gets his hands on Bayliss' title-winning machine
SEVEN-TIME Formula 1 King Michael Schumacher was invited to ride a couple of WSB machines after the final round of the series at Portimao, Portugal.
The German ace, who's recently taken a shine to motorcycle racing, tested newly-crowned WSB champ Troy Bayliss' Ducati 1098, as well as Noriyuki Haga's 200bhp R1.
Schumacher has been involved in the development of BMW's new WSB contender, the S1000 RR superbike.
This is in VD news...
Is it just me or does nobody else give a stuff either...

Free publicity for the factory, free ride and possible fee for him?
Don't care either way...

He's testing how well it crashes.
I thought that He has a hell of a life now. People asking him just to turn up and ride the bikes!!
We'd all love that??

I think any publicity for bike racing is good.
Fair play to him if he can get out of a F1 car and ride a bike at pace around a track (even if he falls off a lot)
I know i can't do either of them!!!
