And anyone who saw KR go from 72nd to SIXTH in one lap knows who is the best ever. He did a little racing in Europe too, I think.

Default Re: He did go to MotoGP

In those days, half the races were on dirt tracks, and Yamaha had a crap dirt racer. Harley won most of those. So he had to absolutely crush everyone on the pavement to be #1.

750s are probably what most people who ride 600s should actually be riding. I think the 636 and 675's that Kawasaki and Triumph are offerring up is leading to that. They may not be any faster than a 600 on a twisty road, but they're a lot easier to ride. Suzuki won't have a monopoly on sport 750's much longer, I would guess.

I think you need to look up 'class act' in the dictionary.

Of course you like him. You both have accomplished so little, yet think so very much of yourselves. You both constantly tell everyone how great you are, while being viewed as the biggest morons in your field. Maybe it's empathy?

Default Re: Defending Mladin.

Winning at the AMA level doesn't make him the best of anything. There are 2 levels of racing above that. Maybe he should have tried on of them.

By the way, Mladin couldn't carry Kenny Roberts' jockstrap. Kenny was the best rider I have ever seen. Mladin was never even as good as Hayden. That's why Hayden is in GP and Mladin is still in Little League.
