Mladin could have moved up 4 or 5 years ago. The best measure themselves against the best. He never did that.

Default You forgot 2

Like **** Mann and Kenny Roberts. When it comes to riding talent, Mladin couldn't hold their dirty underwear.

No Guts? Are you watching the same races I am. Look at the way he handled that flat at Atlanta. How many guys in the world could of pulled that off?

Did DuHamel ever go to MotoGP or WSBK?

Default Re: Mladin Inks Deal

I don't care about Mladin's personality. I never have and probably never will meet him. I never could walk a mile in his shoes and therefore don't expect to understand where he's coming from. They don't give extra credit for being a nice guy at the finish line. Yes, for comparisons sake Miguel (like his father) seems a class act but that won't/didn't get him or anyone else a Factory ride. Mladin's fast and an intense competitor. For that reason he is, as are all the other top riders, entertaining to watch. If Mat were riding for Honda it would seem a lot more feasible to want to take a shot at MotoGP (Suzuki's having trouble getting their equipment up to speed). I see no shame in competing at our National level. Credit where credits due. Good luck Mat.

All the guys in WSB and GP. In other words all the riders that are better than Mladin.

Default Defending Mladin Part 2

Funny come back. But so what if he likes it here in the U.S. Until he loses i.e. somebody knocks him off more power to him. I wish I had his talent to race for so long at the AMA level. He is a winner and not even you can deny that.

Default If only Suzuki would of signed Alexander

That would of made you happy. But I think he was too busy riding V-Twins and training interns.

For what its worth, I remember seeing Dean Adams on TV (can't remember what show) talking about what a nice guy Mladin is "off the track". My two cents: Matt is an intense competitor who doesn't appear to smooch booty. Does that make him a bad guy?
