    Better than *ALL* the rest!

    Valentino Rossi..

    That guy never ceases to amaze, he wins 'Guna and renames the 'screw
    and now he snags another title for Yam, at Honda's track too! Nice

    Yup. Vale Rossi surely is the GOAT. But then Hailwood could win on
    multiple different types of bike on the same day. Agostini has won more
    total GPs and 2 or 3 others have won more total titles. And Kenny
    Roberts could win on pretty much any bike including mile, 1/2 mile and
    TT. I kind of wonder if Rossi might ever race at the IoM TT.

    Looks like Honda will only get two major titles this year.
    WSS600 and AMA FX. Not a good year for them.

    If he ever did I damn sure wouldn't bet against him!
    Yeah, it's hard not to think they've got some "clarity," or direction
    issues, at least in MGP anyway...

    He's for sure the greatest M/C road racer of our time, but that leaves
    me wondering who else currently active in their sport could claim the
    same. Tiger Woods, Kelly Slater and Lance Armstrong (if he's still
    active) is about all anyone here can come up with, you have any others?

    Michael Phelps.

    And very nearly Michael Schumacher, still active sort of (a mere 4
    seconds a lap off the pace in his recent Ten Kate CBR1000 WSB test...
    YE GODS that is quick), statistically the most successful F1 racing
    driver of all time).

    Good ones! I've just been reminded about John Force too, kinda' hard to
    argue against his numbers either...

    T3 notes:
    Claims he's coming back to win that french thing
    in '09.

    Ricky Carmichael just retired from MX/SX but still
    did X games and is racing a roundy round car. Can't
    beat his numbers in MX. Yet. Stewart stays healthy
    he will.

    Go fast. Take chances.

    Another one we overlooked, (actually we were unsure if he was still in
    the game) and a big maybe on Stewart, 'cause he's gotta stay upright
    for longer periods if he's gonna approach anything Ricky did...

  10. Sorry, I misspelt Jeannie Longo

    And for me, this is what elevates him, and makes him 'great'. He
    simply loves racing; he also has a decent knowledge and appreciation
    of the history of the sport, which is not something one usually finds
    in those with precocious talent.

    I'm not sure any of these are in the same class as Woods, Slater,
    Carmichael and Rossi, someday maybe, but not at present..
    Btw, I think Slater either just snagged, or is about to win his 9th
    World Title..

    Back that up with a spanking to hrc + hayden @ Aussie GP ["we dont
    need him to win" & "we will destroy him" hrc fuckheadboss]

    Oh for just another 5 laps, would have closed in on Stoner.


    End of story!
