What does Marquez have to do to be GOAT.

With his fourth championship this year seeming very likely I've been wondering what else does Marquez need to achieve to be in your opinion the GOAT.

I'm just interested to see what those far more knowledgable than me think.

No such thing as a GOAT in moto GP, different eras , machinery, competition levels etc, so Marquez will never be a GOAT because they don't exist!

Except in meadows chewing grass.

For starters, he could stop kicking people off their bikes.

Or was that the other guy?

The term GOAT is bigger then achievements. Its thrown around to much. It about the total take over of a sport. From an economical stand point the sport will not be as good without you. In my lifetime I have only witnessed 2 goats in any sport. Micheal Jordan and Valentino Rossi. Love him or hate him his domination of the spot has lasted longer than his talent. Motogp will long rely on him for a long time yet. Greatest of all time should not be a term thrown around for the fuck of it.

Mike Hailwood.

He was Mike the Bike. Rather more significant a title than Il Dottore in a bike racing conversation.

Rossi is to him as LeBron James is to Michael Jordan, which is not a knock on James or Rossi.

Unusually I agree with you actually. A rider can be greatest of his era perhaps, but not of all eras imo. Rossi is one of the greats.

Before my time. He is a rider I would read about if I knew of any good books.
