... but seriously, Michael Schumacher, the seven-time Formula 1 world champion and master of the ultimate four-wheeled race series, found himself back on two wheels after declaring his second retirement from F1 in October.
The 43 year-old German hit the track on an exclusive track day with racing badasses John McGuiness and Randy Mamola, saying that "Coming here today I felt so proud to be able to turn my hand at riding a bike with guys I really admire."
And while it's hardly surprising that a day at the track on a motorcycle can be inspirational for anyone at any level of riding, McGuinesses noted that "I wasn't expecting him to be anything less, but he's fast. You can see his enthusiasm for motorcycles and it was a massive pleasure to spend the day with him."
After all, Schumie's endorsement for the thrill of motorcycling isn't a revelation to serious riders, but it does take on special significance since it comes from a Formula 1 racing legend, doesn't it?
