“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Yamaha R1 in MotoGP Livery Autographed by Valentino Rossi Up for Grabs

It's always wonderful to see how much an autograph can change common, everyday things, and seeing motorsport stars happy to bestow their "magic" helping charitable goals. If you're a Yamaha enthusiast or a diehard fan of Valentino Rossi, this may be the chance of your life.

Charity Stars have a spectacular, exceptionally rare motorcycle up for auction, in a way, a once-in-a-lifetime offer for those looking to get their hands on special two-wheelers.

Rossi and Yamaha fans can get a special 2015 model year YZF-R1 that comes in a livery you simply can't get elsewhere. That is, the new generation R1 proudly shows off the official Movistar Yamaha graphics of the bike The Doctor rides in the premier class. Of course, not all the small details of Rossi's bike are present on the R1, but one could hardly be unhappy with this bike.

The Doctor's autographs went on the front cowl and the fuel tank, and we guess that whoever picks this sweet bike will have to add a layer of clear varnish to seal in Rossi's handwriting. The bike is accompanied by all the paperwork proving the authenticity of the autographs and WILL become a sought-after collectors' item, with its price destined to go up as Rossi's career advances.

The proceedings of the auction will go to the charity organization La Gotita Onlus and will fund their project "Pasitos". Pasitos is a program that provides pedagogical and psychological support to more than sixty children with disabilities.

Currently the bid for the unique Rossi-autographed MotoGP livery 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 is at €25,000 ($27,825) and you have until September 18th to make a move. Charity Stars also has a very neat Ducati Scrambler on auction and it can be had for a minimum bid of €5,400 ($6,010).
