125, 250 titles are meaningless. No one cares about those titles. They are won because of who you know and how many unequal advantages you can get.
1 500cc or 1 MotoGP title are better than 10 lower class titles.
Agostini, Doohan have always said that. Wins and titles in the TOP CLASS are the only ones that count.
The only time the meaningless lower class titles even came to the media attention and were shouted about was by the Rossi-sheep, to try and massage his statistics and make him look better than he really is.

"Wins and titles in the TOP CLASS are the only ones that count." You've written this to puff up Casey's career, but in fact, it damages it instead. Two non-consecutive titles plus fewer than on half of Rossi's "TOP CLASS" wins. That is Casey's record, and by any measure it falls far short of "Legend."

TESS, Look, what Casey might do and what Casey has done are two different things. For my money, Casey is leaving MotoGP because it has morphed to the point beyond which he can no longer stand to be a part of it, and I respect him for making his decision (I'd like to think that I would have made the same decision rather than sell out my values). However, by ending his career now, Casey has only accumulated stats far, far from those that Rossi has achieved, and that is what the records will forever show.

Takes a lot of guts to make the decision to walk away from a sport while you are still one of the top dogs. Fair play to him, he's doing what he wants to do with his life rather than follow the crowd. Fantastic rider to watch love him or loathe him.

Casey Stoner has said on numerious occasions,he came to motogp solely to win races,if championships came his way he said that would be a bonus,he didnt care about them.and he sure as hell won plenty of races.He achieved all he set out to do,and had nothing left to prove. And it will be a long time before we see another rider of his caliber. Casey retiring means the benchmark has been lowered,Because lorenzo and pedro only have themselves to beat, nobody else is even close.Enjoy your retirement casey you deserve it. 10 years of thrills and spills, fantastic to watch, you will be surely missed by all true motorcycle racers and fans. cheers you are a legend.
