Schumacher raced in this year's German superbikes championship
Honda say they are ready to offer retired seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher a ride in the 2009 World Superbikes championship.
Schumacher, 39, has raced in German superbike races with Honda this year.
Honda Racing boss Carlo Fiorani told La Gazetta dello Sport: "Michael has not asked us to race in the worlds. But if he wants to, there is a way for him."
Meanwhile, MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi says he could switch to rallying when he finishes racing bikes.
The 29-year-old Italian, who won his eighth world motorcycling title this year, signed a two-year contract in July to continue riding for Yamaha in MotoGP and is competing in next month's Wales Rally GB as a driver.
