Well, he would have, but then you can't strut around acting like a proper pr!ck when you are just a mid pack racer now can you?
LOL, not a Mladin fan huh?

Well, lets just put it this-a-way: longride thinks the title should have been Matt Mladin: One Shat-Talkin' Racer!

He's been on top because he had the best bike and the most skill, now that Spies is in the mix he has to work for it. The fact is if he's so lame he'd be a mid pack rider not a multi time winner. He might be a prick but he's a dam* fast one

Like Spies too right?

We'll see how good Ben "my sh!t don't stink" Spies is next year when he joins Schwantz's MotoGP team. I still say Mat Mladin is the best rider in the series.

At least Spies will have the balls to join GP and match his skills with the best in the world on the fastest bikes on the planet. He might struggle, and he might suck, but at least he won't be an AMA weenie bragging about all his 'well earned' titles against has-been's and never-will-be's. Real champions challenge themselves. Those that don't gather AMA titles and act like King Shyt.

Ummmm, LR, I to break this to ya but motorcycle racers don't have to ever actually win anything to act like King Shyt. Sort of comes with the territory. I run into plenty of them who haven't even done a track day.

Mladin is an employee, maybe the reason he stays in AMA is because that's where his employer wants him, look how much mileage Suzuki gets out of the "Unbeatable GSXR" title wins.

Correctly, Mladin is a American Suzuki employee. American Suzuki doesn't have another racing outlet other than Yosh. Matt picked a no lose when he signed up with them. If he'd been contracted to Suzuki in Japan it'd probably be a different story.
