I think we had this same discussion last year at the same time.



Obviously, Rossi is the best of his generation, by far. When he is racing, it is usually for second place for the rest of the field.

According to the insurance post, sportbikes are getting harder and harder to control.That would have to be true for the race preped bikes also (i.e. faster, better brakes, better handling) making it more important to have better skills. So I guess if Rossi raced other top racers from other generations he would win. With that logic I guess that makes him the best ever!

Is Rossi the best ever?? Speak MOrons!



A strong argument to that effect could certainly be made. At the least, he has the largest advantage vs. his peers that I can recall.

An argument can already easily be made for the statement. What will sign, seal, and deliver the claim though is another couple championships. In the MX world Ricky Carmichael is already making Jeremy McGrath a memory. It's all due not just to winning championships but totally dominating. That is what Rossi is doing, dominating. HeÂ’s Michael Jordan in leathers.

Rossi is awesome. Hey Kpaul, do you know who placed highest in the AMA Superbike standings on a privateer RC51 this year?

Let's wait and see what Ricky can do on the Suzuki.

Default Re: stupid s**t

When have I said anything about Mladin?

As it happens I think Mladin wins because he's the best rider on the best bike, backed by the best team.

I usually don't post much on racing topics because I don't follow racing that close, and unlike you, if I don't know what I'm taking about I keep my mouth shut.

As for Rossi I think the results speak for themselves, Agostini and Yer' Mon, Joey Dunlop will have to make room at the top of the talent pile.
