"Easily surpass" - he has the talent but the competition now is fierce unlike some 8 years ago. i expect a max of 3 world titles but can get as many wins as doohan.

Just my opinion, you might be right with 3 world titles. My guess would be 2 championships. However, I would say that the competition of the "good old days" were more brutal and fearsome compared to today's. It's just that people like doohan, rossi, surtees, or lawson made it look easy. Japanese riders of yesteryear were just as cruel (although they never won championships). Remember laguna seca 2007 when stoner complained about valentino's riding, doohan said that during his time unsafe maneuvers and life-threatening skirmishes happened every weekend and every race. Just my observation.
