Just saw this on his Instagram. Is he being cocky or does he deserve the title, “Fastest Man on the planet.” ?

Not cocky. He’s probably right. Classless though.

Didn't he get beat the last time he hit the track, to David Hasselhoff's kid or something like that?

Humble in victory, humble in defeat.

Pretty sure Ricky said he doesn't like the title "GOAT"

It's one thing if everyone else calls you the FMOTP, but to call yourself the FMOTP? Different story.

Besides, didn't he get beat by his teammate in the last moto?

Same overconfidence as Roczen. Be careful the FMOTP. I hope he will not end up like KR but I think there is a good chance that it will happen.

MX doesn't like big mouths...

You don't think Herlings has had enough injuries already?

Cocky yeah sure, but I also think he has earned the rights to be cocky. I also have to agree with Crush, kind of classless not the way I would go about it if I were as badass as him riding a dirtbike

RC might say he doesn't like the title "GOAT" but I call bullshit on that. Why else would he call his place The GOAT Farm.

As for Herlings, he's fast and people know it so to me that was pretty arrogant. I'm not saying he's wrong, just saying that wasn't needed. In my opinion he should take a page out of Dungey's book and just let his riding do the talking.

That said he more than likely did it to get people talking so mission accomplished. More eyes on the sponsors.

He’s definitely the man. He’s just acting like a boy tho shouting to the world that he is.

That post could have been “what a year, 66 out of 72 wins, achieved more than I could have hoped for and hopefully next year we also add the MXdN at home”... and people still would have had said he is the man. But if you carry on like a dickhead you can’t be upset if people think you’re a dickhead.

Not that he gives a shit what me or anyone would think though, clearly.

He is dutch, he doesn’t know how to not be cocky... it’s in their blood! For some reason when they translate from dutch to English it comes out that way! I am first generation American from dutch parents and that’s how they all sound.... ishint dat veird ?

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

They’re not mutually exclusive....

He can be both the fastest - and the biggest dick.

I’d bet people at the time didn’t like it for sure. Time has a way of spinning a favorable light on things.

I don’t care, but it’s a good example of why people don’t like him.

Who the hell voted no? He's not only the fastest but he might be or become the most dominant rider of all time.

I wonder if a celebratory drink or two was consumed before that post. But like they say, children and drunks are truthful.

Yeah, he's not upset because some think he's a dick head. I'm willing to bet he posted that just to troll all the internet keyboard warriors.

He didn't come up the the name Goat Farm. Just like he didn't come up with the GOAT. Ever since Brownie started that title, Ricky has said he prefers RC

It's a pretty safe bet that he is the fastest in the world at the moment...I hate the lack of humility though... Let the rest of the world call him that...he's earned it...but that post is amateur hour and childish.

My jaw drops at his riding...but my eyes roll every time he opens his mouth.

Previously Carmichael Farm. Now The GOAT Farm. It's his place so who changed it?

Would have liked to see Roczen of 2016 or Tomac pre-injury 2014 against Herlings. Cairoli might have kept him honest if he started up front. Cairoli so impressive. It's like his little body is one with the bike. But Herlings is just a beast.

I agree. I'm not saying he is wrong either. And one thing I really like about Dung and RV was that they always kept their mouths shut and just rode. Says a lot about their character.

I mean, he did knock up a 16 year old girl when he was 32 and married... Thought interracial couples should be lynched.... Absolutely hated whites... And was divorced a crazy amount of times. But yeah, he was classy. Ali did seem to become a much better person later on in his life when he got out of the nation of Islam and met different people from around the world.
