Valentino Rossi is My Hero MOTOGP 2014

Meet Valentino Rossi for all fans and for all who adore with him is very great experience. Also for me as one of the million of his fans always got the chance to meet and talk with him, and every time I meet him, all of my body was always shaking because of his charisma and lots of charming of the living legend.

At this time, I get my luckiness again to watch The 1st test of 2014 Season and came to the Press Conference of Yamaha.  At the first, this press conference went very well as it should be and finished with very successful. All media came to the stage for interviewing all riders and as usual Valentino Rossi have more a lot of attention.

And after that all finish I just standing beside the stair of the stage, don’t even want to bother of  journalist to find information, after the interview finish Valentino Rossi walking to the stair and when he look at me, he just stop and smile and said :
VR :  “heyyy, how are you?” 
 I really shock and look with unbelievable eyes, only saw him already make my body shaking how about when he greets me first! It was such and unforgettable moment ever!!  
Me: “I’m doing good, how are you? Very happy to look your 1st day result test”
VR : “Thanks for support…” (with his humble smile while patting my shoulder friendly)
And he went up again to the stage because need to do some interview with four media Television.

Really unbelievable, The biggest rider ever on this sport who have million fans can remember with his fans. It happened to me not only one time, he already couple of times greet me first even only for couple of second but it’s really greatest  attitude come from the amazing rider.

And After that, I went up to the stage only for chat up with other Yamaha riders, they all very nice. Valentino just finish 1 interview with TV media and when he look at me, I just don't brave to say want photo with him due with his busy time but Valentino Rossi maybe understands that I’m coming only to see him and he gives his busy time to come and took a photo with me. One of his management said “Not time for photo Valentino, you still have 3 media again to interview” with Italian accent very polite and friendly.

VR : “Ok, it’s ok I only take a photo for a minute with her” (smile look at me and talk a little bit with me while he embrace my shoulder as he always do with all his fans) 
Me : “Thank you Valentino Rossi, you really kind" 
VR : (Smile…)
And after that he continue and sitting on his bike for doing some  interview again.

See…I have nothing again to say, Valentino Rossi is a very different idol, he gave his busy time for always treat well his fans. He knows so well that he is busy, he knows so well that he have million fans , and he knows so well how to make his fans keep loyal with him.

After that Press Conference I can slept very tight, I always believe that I’m very proud to be his fans, I put my adore in the right person.

On the next day February 5th, the 2nd day of 1st MotoGP test 2014, I come to the circuit around 10am, walking around the paddock and chat with some journalists in media center. Look the result of the Valentino Rossi’s test is still not get the best shape on the timesheet, but as we already understand the test is going not for be fastest but to know and understand the placing and to try lots of setting to find the weaknesses and the goodness from the bike for the input to the engineering and mechanic. But before lunch time Valentino Rossi found the best setting and jump up to the big 3 and finish the test on 2nd place.

Around 2pm, my luckiness come again to me, Yamaha give a chance to visit Yamaha’s paddock and for me it’s truly the first experience I never think it will happened to me. Not many people can get this chance, but I can be 1 of them lucky, so happy.

Valentino Rossi Box, Feb 4th 2014
And it’s truly as destiny for me, at the moment Valentino Rossi already come back from the track and has discussion with the team. We don’t want to bother his work so we just only saw from very close how actually the team works on the box. Really incredible experience for me, and said thank you for all person who made it come true.

And one of Yamaha crew said like this to me: “You’re really lucky when other come to the box, Valentino ride  his bike on the track but you can meet him on the box, great!” (with his Japanese accent)

Corner 2 Sepang International Circuit, SSK
At the afternoon 2 hours before track close, I found my fortune again, I  get a chance  to get around to every corner of the Sepang circuit. It's not my first experience already had this chance before, but for now more special because I can really visit every corner  so I can see closly when  the riders doing breaking in every corner. Incredible show.

One of media Malaysia took photo of me on the corner 2 Sepang circuit and he just gave very great art result. The photo of me like use poster as a background but actually it was really riders on the track. Just brilliant idea for him.
The Star Newspaper, Feb 7th 2014

After all very great experience I got little bit surprise, one of photo me in the corner too publish in one of Malaysian Newspaper "The Star" , Greatly appreciated with the media which gives great appreciation away to fans.

I share it not  for make people jealous and hate me; I just want to share the humble spirit of Valentino Rossi. Once someday we can be a big people don’t ever forget with the humanity side.

Doing everything with full heart and people will notice by itself.

 Don’t ever give up because you never know when the result will come.

 When we  believe we can find way, when we trying hard we can find the result, when we do with love we can get everything we dream for ~ dsulistiyo

Thanks Valentino Rossi for every good things you gave to us: “Brave, consistence,  patience , high spirit  and the important one the humbleness”

Six Yamaha Bikes in One Stage MOTOGP 2014

4th January 2014 at 8pm, Yamaha did Press Conference with title "Yamaha Motorsports Press Conference 2014". This moment for me is more than only press conference, because in this event for the 1st time we can meet up with all riders using Yamaha bike for 2014 season at one stage. And for sure as we know Yamaha bike is having a very good speed and now with total 6 Yamaha bikes on this championship will make this sport more lovable and entertaining to watch for.

First rider came to the stage is Jorge Lorenzo with hat and glasses, he was walking very confident to the stage and all media who are there gave a very big applause and he smiled and wove to all of us. The 2nd name called by the MC with the words “the famous rider in the world ….. Valentino Rossi” with his wonderful smile, he’s walking slowly and turn his head around to the audience, just feel the big charisma of him hardly.

And the next are riders for Yamaha Tech 3,

Bradley Smith who’s already joins on this team from last year and now he has the new teammate Pol Espargaro, the Moto2 2013 World Champion. As we know, started from 2014, Yamaha have leasing agreement with their YZR-M1 with NGM Mobile Forward Racing team. Who make all MotoGP fans so excited with this team is because Collin “Texas Tornado” Edward will ride one of the 2 bikes on this team with team mate AleixEspargaro.

When we look to the rider composition of Yamaha for 2014, for sure all the names of the ridersisall the very good talent on this sport.

As we know Yamaha YZR-M1 is already a very good bike and now with some adjustment the bike must be even more perfect to ride. The baby “M1” (sometimes we called like that because Valentino Rossi really love this bike) have some improvement than 2013, the engineer make some changes for the ECU due to the New Rule from Dorna, make adjustment on the seamless gearbox and they called it more sophisticated Seamless Gearbox, and with it we’re really hope that they can make some improvementof speed in every corner of the track and make them to not losing more of time and make more gap with others.

After 3rd day test, Valentino Rossi’s result seems more have his feeling with his M1 and he really had a good confident when we saw the way he ride the bike in every lap, and it means Yamaha’s engineersare doing great with some improvement they made. And with all the comments from the 6 riders after the 1st test for sure the engineers will try again to have some solution to fix and make the bike more competitive.

Here are some of the quotes from Valentino Rossi with his baby M1 after finished the entire 3rdday test :

“The test has been very good, I’m very happy, especially for the second position and more than that for the lap time which is the best of my career in Sepang. It’s the first time under 2’00 for me and just one tenth from Marc and the overall record of the track.”

“I found a good feeling with the bike, we found some good solutions and it’s been very positive,” he added. 

“We tried a simulation in the afternoon that was very good to understand any problems. We suffered a bit to keep a good pace but it wasn't so bad. For the first test the balance was good.”

And we also got surprise from AleixEspargaro constantly he got 7th, 5th and 4th for the whole test and means that it’s really good progress for Yamaha bike.

Keep all the good work Yamaha; we all hope that we can see the 10thon this year. It will be awesome if Valentino Rossi can make it this year. Because Valentino Rossi never stops trying and we’ll never stop believing in him.

Be one team is beginning, believing each other is process, find success together is result, become famous is bonus

Karel Abraham still feel lot of pain on shoulder MOTOGP 2014

Second day of 1st MotoGP test in Sepang was very unforgettable time for me, the atmosphere on the paddock feel warmer and so friendly. When I’m going down from the media center and looking around, the flamboyant rider Karel Abraham walking slowly around paddock and look hurt with his leg.

I just come there and had chit chat about the condition and the older time we met before. Just relax and very pleasure talking with him, and I a little bit curious with the way he walk.

Me:  “What’s wrong with your leg?
KA: (answered with smile) “Actually my leg is not too problem but my shoulder is still very pain after last year crashed.”  
Me: “Are you not have some surgery?” (Curious face) 
KA: “I did, all recovery also going very well as I feel, but yesterday when I tried to ride the bike, I feel not comfort again on my shoulder, pain” 
Me: “Hmm.. I think it’s the same problem as Valentino Rossi before on the last 4 years before when he had injured on his shoulder. Need long time recovery due to the pain sometimes comes back after did some braking with the bike” (Guess face...)
KA: (smile and shrugged his shoulders) “Not sure but maybe yes. I don’t have any conversation about it with him yet. But I feel the same after did some breaking, lots of pain.” 
Me: “hope it will be better soon before the Qatar race. Anyhow, how about your new bike, what engine do you use?”
KA : “Honda, and everything is very good, easy to ride and I like the chassis.”
Me : “Glad to hear that, hmm may I know what is the first thing that make you so in love with this sport? You not feel scary in the corner with very high speed? 
KA: “hmm.. since I was a little boy I already like this sport, yes… some people said it was scary and danger sport but I like to be on the bike. Enjoy…(smile with eyes think far) the feel on the corner is good I can’t describe it with word" 
Me : “Is it the same feel like when we in the roller coaster?”
KA : (laughing..) “Naaa…. It’s different, Roller coaster I think more scary, in the corner we feel so fun”
Me: (Imagine…) “hmm ok, keep safe ridding for you and enjoy 
KA : (smile)
Me : “Nice to talk with you Karel, hope we can see you more fit on the second test and can try for the maximum on your bike, good luck” 
KA : “I hope the same, thank you for the support”
Before we trully end it, we both trying take a photo but some problem happened with the camera but with very patiently Karel was waiting and smile and "zappp" photo just complete.

And then finally I need to end the very friendly conversation, short but lots of meaning.
We can see with the eyes clearly how brave all riders are. They know actually this sport sometimes danger, with the high speed, extreme track and competition inside must be so scary for ordinary people like me. But with love and passion the hard thing can be so enjoyable. 

Keep this sport safe and entertaining; show always to us the real meaning of it. Really can’t wait to watch the real race of MotoGP on Qatar when the journey really begins.

Scott Redding with MotoGP 2014

It’s been a while I’m not writing here, and time goes by so fast, The New Season of MotoGP2014 have just started. Not the race yet only the winter test at SepangCircuit, but the sound of the bike is incredibly enough for all this sport  fans to  release the longing to this highly bike championship.

Things that make this 2014 been waiting for is because some of the blind prediction already comes and make us feel more excited about how this season will be going. Is Valentino Rossi will improve with the baby M1 and make 10th, or could be Marc Marquez more impressive with his bike and grab the thropy again, than not possible Jorge Lornezo will push hard his bike to take back the tittle that regardless, perhaps as well Dani Pedrosa, Aleix Espargaro or another new riders make a surprise. Interesting!!!

I have my luckiness again to come and watch live how the test was going, some of the best thing is where I can be one of guests who come the Yamaha Press Conference 2014 on 4 February 2014, the first time we can see the 6 bikes of Yamaha on one stage.

Beside that I have some very amazing1st experience on Sepang Circuit. 

For this time I would share my walking interview with the British young rider who just upgrade his class from Moto2 to MotoGP after a very great result on Moto2 class 2013. Not only because he’s so great on the race he also nice and very kind person with the fans. It was not my first time met and have some good conversation about bike, we met last year in Sepang and Motegi and all the time it been always a very lovable time to chat with him.

Scott Redding was born on January 4th, last year on Moto2 he rode the bike very well but due to with his crashed and injured, he will not be able to be the World Champion, but however we need to give a 4 thumbs up for his fight spirit.

Under the hot weather of SepangCircuit around 15.14, I visited his paddock and we had some great time together talk about his new experience on MotoGP class, we’re walking around the paddock to continue the conversation.

Nicely he said that he was remember our meeting in Motegi and we chat a little bit about our condition and without wasting any more time, I directly asked about his new bike and what he feel with it also about the different between Moto2 and MotoGP bike.

He looks very enthusiastic and answered : “I’m pretty happy with the bike but I can’t push it hard at this moment because lots of thing I need to know better. Yes the bike is very different, on Moto2 we don’t need much to control only ride like we ride the bike but in MotoGP lots of needed to be understood as electronic and breaking. The hard thing is in the corner, very hard to follow to find a great balance because it’s very fast bike. But overall the bike is good but on this time maybe the “other bike” faster than us but I’m sure on the second test we will have some speed on our bike. I just love to be back for riding again and I feel so happy with this bike”; and than we need to end the walking interview with some photo of us. At that time no body around us, so Scott have an idea to took camera by our self, me hold the camera and Scott help push the button. Very fun between rider and ordinary fans.

Good attitude Scot Redding and we believe with your spirit and skill, by joining on this championship the race will be more entertaining. Young, Fast, Brave and Kind. Keep your smile for this sport and all the fans.
