Both Australians but totally different. One's a fighter and one's a quitter. One has 5 championships in 11 years but do not consider himself the GOAT. The other one has a measly 2 championships in 13 years but considers himself the GOAT. Doohan revels hard racing, while the other wants a time trial instead. Doohan earned respect, Stoner despite his pleading for some, will never have it.

LC Tanner, Always agree with you mate,you always make me laugh!! You know exactly how to wind up the Stoner fans and they always fall for it, every time! Mind you, what you say is generally the truth, but they just don't like it slapped in their faces!!!

Mick is the guy who's helping to bring Mercedes to the V8 racing. Thus having CS race in the V8's.

Both are as tough as nails, only MD will be a bit on the rusty side.

Mick's a legend, be real nice if they could let him smoke up on one of his old Two-Strokes.
With the RC213, they'll have to switch off all the electronic aids so Mick can ride it like he used too, he'll wonder what the hell is going on otherwise.
Said Hi to him last year as he walked past our Hotel at the Isle of Man TT, i was gobsmacked!!
Good Luck Mick
Cheers Dave.

The Merc, V8 and F1 demonstration was at the F1 a couple of years ago. Mick used to race their top of the line models at Targa Tasmania and other road race events. If I remember he destroyed an AMG 55 on the second day of one of the rallies. So Stoner says he is the GOAT? And he demands respect? Where and when did this occur? I love the rubbish some people post in the blind hope nobody will notice the complete lack of merit or truth.
