I think there's no disputing Marc can win on any bike, but that's not how he's won his championships.  He's done so because of the team effort, from his crew to the engineers to the factory working on the electronic package, suspension, and engine.  And then there's that little support thing where your teammate, who can and has helped take points away from your championship rivals.

There are probably others, but in my opinion there were two races in 2017 that illustrated or demonstrated what a great team effort looks like from Honda, BRNO & Aragon.

There's the lure and lust for being the highest paid in the paddock and he should be the highest paid at this point, no question.  But when the motorcycle career is all said and done and you've won more championships than anyone else in the history of this sport, that's how legends are made.  You only get this one chance and Honda is prepared to deliver.

He's not the GOAT till he wins a championship on something like the KTM or Suzuki.

Exactly! Until he wins on something else then he will never be the GOAT.. There are at least 7 or 8 riders on the grid at the moment that could win a title on the Repsol Honda. It was and probably always will be the best bike on the grid. MM won't change to another manufacturer until that bike is actually winning and winning consistently. Simple.
