Despite calling off his Formula One comeback due to lingering neck injuries after a motorcycle testing fall, Michael Schumacher has returned to the saddle of a two-wheeled racer.

Bild newspaper said the seven time world champion tested on Monday with the German Superbike team Holzhauer at the Circuit de Bresse in France.

"It was purely a private motorcycle test with friends," 40-year-old Schumacher's spokeswoman Sabine Kehm said. "And it was not his first ride since the accident (in February).

"Michael has a lot of fun driving motorcycles and that is not going to change," she added.
