Oct.15 (GMM) Michael Schumacher has ruled out falling back on two wheels as he prepares once again for F1 retirement.

The great German raced in the German superbike series at times during his three-year 'sabbatical' in the wake of his Ferrari career, and narrowly escaped serious injury in one particular spill.

Schumacher told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper that racing motorbikes is "great fun", but he also acknowledged that it is "definitely" more dangerous than F1.

"I am very willing to learn," he smiled. "What that means is that I will not do any more motorcycle racing."
