There's certainly no denying that Bayliss has talent but Rossi has won the World Championship in 125, 250, 500 and MotoGP, I think in a one on one race he would run away and hide from anyone at this point. It'll definately be worth a couple of bucks to watch

If I had to put money down, it would be on Rossi. But I'd still be cheering for Bayliss!

Bearing in mind that was a pinnacle race-win for Bayliss, but head to head, in a one race showdown,...you'd be crazy to bet against the Doctor. I'd stay with that bet even if he did'nt have the right set-up for that particular race.

Besides making a run for a championship as you well know, makes you relax a bit when somebody that's not even in contention for the championship is eating away your competitors points at the front.

Who knows, maybe he's the nicest guy in the world. But, I think we're allowed to root for our favorites and boo our "bad guys" in sports just because we want to; good reason or not!

No doubt Ken, root for whom ever suit's ya brah! It'll be really fun to watch though, your right about that!

I like Troy. I would want him to win such a race. Alas the "Doctor" will win, how'd I do as a pretend GMP? I've seen this too many times, "Rossi starts on the 4th row...... Rossi WINS by 2.4 seconds!!!" There is that something that he has that no one else does. As a side note I could give a **** what his personality is, I watch him race with others like him that's all.

I didn't know about Troys book, I'll read that now too.

Go Troy! Here's a 20 on Rossi. Go Troy!

Okay that's done. Now maybe we can come up with more pointless conjectures. Who do you think would win? Cassius Clay or Rocky Graziano?

I'd be funny if they both took each other out on the first lap. (As long as no one goot hurt of course)
