Schumacher is shopping.

"Grandpa" Michael is listening to Jean Todt and Jean Alesi's advice about as much as little brother Ralf listened to him about not racing in DTM.  Today and tomorrow herr Schumi will be taking part in another semi-pro motorcycle race on the Misano circuit.   This time he's riding a KTM SuperDuke as part of the Trofeo KTM, that manufacturer's racing league.   Recently Schumacher had raced in Hungary on a Honda and in Spain on a Triumph.  Perhaps he is shopping for a new bike and this is how seven time world champions do test rides? 

Schumacher, who landed yesterday in rainy Rimini with a private jet and drove to the circuit in style in a Maserati simply said:  "I'm here to have fun,  I today I will learn the track and the lines.  Tomorow hopefully the weather will improve and we can have even more fun."

Misano circuit promoters will undoubtedly be happy as this is likely to be the best attended amateur race ever!
