MotoGP » Casey Stoner to ride at Australian MotoGP, but…


@AussieNSW. In my last post I stated I couldn't pick a favourite I have so many of them Duke was my first and to be sure Hailwood is also up there plus some that are never mentioned and the unmentioned ones well they were ones I saw race race up close and personal at the UGP and two of which really blew me away and to this day I remember both with great clarity. @raju. Well mate at least you had the good fortune to see racing real racing without electronics and TC.

@AussieNSW. How's it going me auld mate, I guess most posters on this site can't go as far back as we can, and therefore can't get the true picture of GP racing. One of my favourite quotes is when Rossi leaves GP racing will die no one want to follow MotoGP racing. lol They don't know that the greatest ever attendance at a GP race was at the ring in Germany to see Geoff Duke on the Gilera half a million they reckon. Geoff was also in my opinion was the only racer to win not one but three WCs on an inferior bike there may be a few who won one WC on an inferior bike but three well that's something else. As with my love of music I'd be hard pressed to pick out a favourite too many to say he's my all time favourite.

@raju. Ago up there with Rossi, and no mention of Mike Hailwood who when on the same bike hammered him who won most of his championships flogging mostly weekend warriors on off the shelf Norton's Matchless's and AJS's all single cylinder bikes while he was on a factory MV four. I met him back in 1965 a really nice bloke who when asked who was the greatest a few year ago said Mike the bike but then again what would he know. I assume you plucked his name out because of the number of WCs he won I doubt you even seen him race. Yes you have some great names up there but you are missing quite a few also the positioning leave a lot to be desired. How many of your list have you seen race.????

Can anyone remember the main reason why this sh:t fight started well I reckon it was when Colin Edwards called him the GOAT just cause he couldn't beat him,Colin who is one of the most aimeable blokes in the paddock but who has had the misfortune to never win one race in MotoGP. Now as we all know his greatest adversary was Troy Bayliss a man who after a few short years said he wasn't good enough and was just holding a seat from perhaps a better rider, and so he moved on ( fair play to him) however he did get one more ride on a Ducati and won and therefore goes down in history as only one of three who won on a Ducati.
