Which one? I've got about 25.

Yup, and Metty didnt get the back door factory Honda stuff like KW did and CP would.

I'm not knocking Valli or the Yamaha. I dont believe the relative performance of a stock YZF or CRF has anything to do with it as long as the rider feels comfortable on the bike when the team gets done with it. Valli may be the satellite Yamaha team, ... more »

I've got nothing against Yamaha or Valli, but CP would be wise to go with Geico since they have a much stronger, well established team with close ties to both PC and Factory Honda.

Magoo was tough no doubt, and so was everyone on that list, plus Ryno and everyone else mentioned that was not on the first list. Several mentioned Dick Mann, I can tell you that dude is STILL tough and he must be near 80, and so is 64-65 World 500 Champion ... more »

I will try in the future to us less correct grammar, punctuation, and unusual use of the caps key. I'm actually a little pissed I didn't think of using intentional misspellings and textspeak in the rumor paragraph. Oh well. @chase383, that corner is ... more »

Thanks. I dont think of myself as old, by it all depends on who I'm riding with. At the Vintage races I'm one of the younger riders, but at modern races or practice days the kids all think I'm ancient, and they think my '99 YZ is "vintage".
