Rossi did race superbikes when he was with Honda, however it was in the Suzuka 8hr races. That would be an awesome exhibition battle if Rossi and Bayliss were thrown in there as wildcards in one of next years WSBK events. Bayliss would have the advantage however, after racing the F08 last year, I'm sure the championship winning F09 probably isn't too different. The R1 is a new untested design and Rossi unfamiliar with the bike. Part of Rossi's magic is working around problems in set up and if he brings Burgess with him, he'll undoubtedly be in for a good scrap.
