The moanometer will be off the scale at phillip island,mind you at least one of the two is a hard racer with a claim to being one of the greatest riders of all time,riding with injury for a lot of his very successful career.
The other hurt his ankle.

What a dumb comment, show me where Casey considered himself the GOAT ... ???

You guys are like ticks, leeching onto something called moan, and just cannot get over it ... every racer complains when things does not go his/hers way, you guys are like a stuck record ...

So don't blame the guy for his fans' stupidity.

Hailwood is the GOAT, not Rossi.

So what does he strut and strop, who do you see that ? I would think Jorge is way more stroppy and struts himself more with his idiotic celebrations ...

Some people just like hating because of hate.

I bet if Doohan could break away in a race, he would, it's just that the bikes were closer in performance those days to enable scraps to happen ...

Casey can scrap, so can Dani and Jorge, you don't become a World Champ without getting into scraps !!!

I can't think of any real scraps involving Casey Stoner except for 1 in 2008 which will still remain one of the best races I have ever seen!!! Mind you, it wasn't a real scrap, more a lesson in how to race a bike!!! Casey won in 2007 because he had the fastest bike, he never had a scrap!! He won in 2011 because he had one of the fastest bikes, can't think of any real scraps!! Casey doesn't do scraps which is why he has only won 2 world championships when supposedly being the best there!!!!

Jeez, some ignorance ... so if your bike is miles better, you will actually WAIT for other riders to catch up to have a SCRAP ? Are you insane, what's wrong with you dude ...

Any rider will avoid scraps, as this makes the risk of racing higher !

Stop repeating what his fans says !

Great rider. No doubt about that.

And those Hondas he rode?

Rocket ships. Each and every one.

While others caught up through the turns Doohan just waited and blew them away down the straights. A very loyal Honda man. Scary eh?

But on those ODD occassions when the Honda was fast in the corners...not often...it was goodbye.

But to be fair to Mick. He did have consistancy and his bike control was very immpressive. A delight to see him coming out of the corners.

But. The world is bigger than Honda Mick. Sorry but it had to be said.

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.

And thats the main reason why Stoner quit motoGP. And towards the end he revealed himself to be a hypocrite. Bautista is the case in point. The best at overtaking down the straights and thats about it.

Choker when real pressure is applied. Case in point dropping it chasing the robot. Pleasure to see though.
