Default Re: Michael Jordan rides Ducati Desmosedici

Let me begin by saying to those that slam MJ, You guys suck. I've been lucky enough to meet him at Road America and Road Atlanta this year. He's a stand up guy that loves the sport. He may be new to organized racing but has a ton of m/x and streetbike experience. He's also trying to change the face of the game by encouraging minority ownership in the sport. If he continues to develop his team and achieves any type of success then he will have achieved what nascar has not. Good for him. As for Ducati- Jordan races Yamaha's in the AMA. Ducati's are what he owns. Don't you think Ducati is thinking marketing. If Ducati were really going to make a big AMA splash they would damn-near give him race bikes next season to run with factory support. It's all about who draws what and Jordan (no matter the sport) draws fans and fans buy bikes. So there- blah, blah and two pair of pants.

Dude, soccer makes baseball look exciting. Maybe you should switch from that effete euroweenie Bushmills to some good old fashioned American red, white and blue Wild Turkey before you find yourself following the cricket scores or watching golf.

Not very Libertarian of you. Jordan didn't steal his money from anyone and wasn't born into a privledged life.



In addition to his ability, he was also known as one of the hardest working, most brutal players to practice with in the league.

Default Soccer?

Any sport where faking an injury is considered an appropriate tactic is not a real man's sport but a girly man's sport.



No wonder the fans get drunk and started beating the hell out of each other after 90 minutes of boredom.

If it gets Ducati a bit of media attention - great. If motorcyclists are seen in a more postive light - I'm thinking "adspeak" here - even better.



Someone made a great point, though indirectly: athletes at the pro level, regardless of the sport, are insanely talented. Not much of a stretch for me to believe that a sports great could learn to outride me - with 33 yrs experience - 31 of which are on big, relatively fast bikes - in fairly short order.



Does not follow from that, that that (heh, heh) sports star would be a better rider overall, nor more devoted, nor more knowlegable about history of marques, models, etc...

Just for your information. MJ has been to numerous track days, and to Pridmore's school multiple times

Some people never draw a private sector paycheck. They just marry rich women who inherit money from dead Republicans.



Only in America!
