@Cals Mouse:

Some idiot around the 4-6th page where he totally bags on Hayden saying Hayden hasn't done anything on the Ducati. Honestly, Hayden has already done more for Ducati than Melandri has for sure.

The other thing people need to understand is just because you can win a lot of races doesn't necessarily mean you automatically WIN A TITLE. If I were to weight it out:

TITLES over WINS.

The title is far more important than the number of wins you have. Especially in this age of "The manufacturer detunes their Satellite bikes so they will NEVER win a race".

Heck, look at Dovi. He's doing damn good on a Satellite Yamaha that is NOT factory spec and beating the pants off the FACTORY Ducati bikes. That should tell Ducati they're still light years away from being competitive.

@the truth hurts.
There is huge difference between discussion and ridicule. The topic is about getting a new frame and swingarm. People are trying to discuss what it may bring and even what is still wrong. Just repeating failure, failure, failure isn't a discussion. Just repeating my rider is better is not a discussion.

@Realist: Correction...3 "podiums"....Hayden doesn't have any "wins" on the Ducati.

I never said he had a win on a Ducati. Not once.

That said, he has something that Pedrosa does not and that is a MotoGP Title. And Hayden did it in 4 years. Pedro is on year 7 on the Honda Factory team and while he stands a chance to win it this year, the fat lady hasn't sung yet.

Oh, have I mentioned how much I HATE, HATE, HATE Puig?!

@ Brian C.

Well the way that it was worded, it seemed to imply that you were referring to the Ducati. In any case, if you were referring to overall wins, I stand corrected.

You make a valid point about the fact that Hayden has a title, but oddly enough.....Pedrosa is a more memorable rider despite not having a WC.

That's all I am saying. WINS do not define the best riders in GP. Titles do and until Pedros wins one, he can win as many races as he wants, he's still not (technically) a WINNER :)

Cheers, mate.

It is a crying shame that people like The truth hurts do everything in their power to ruin it for others. As you can see from his posts. It shows the validity of all his previous posts.
In case you haven't seen what he is doing, he is spamming with nasty insults to the moderators and it looks like they are doing their best to delete them. I have been hitting newest and seen dozens of his inane posts come and go.
