And 1 world title on a Ducati is an infinite multiple of 0, as are 23 race wins.

Yeah that is infinitely better than hitting him with a brick or paver. Especially when you also consider that the majority of rossis "titles" were achieved when WSBK was the premier league.

Is there a honest evaluation of Rossi's titles somewhere? Like who he was up against and how he rode a traction controlled Honda when everyone else relied on their wrist to tame the two-stroke beasts?

Thats just called history.

But anyway if we are comparing rossi to other riders .... this little girl cries when she is OFF the bike ..... unlike rossi who is always crying when on the bike.

You mean the same two stoke he won a title on?
The same two stroke that had traction control on for everyone, since at least the mid 90s?

The 4 stroke Honda he left behind for everyone else to ride and won on the underdog Yamaha instead?

Try a little harder to be a little better.

I don't think the two strokes had traction control, compared to say late 80/early 90's they had softer engines due to a mixture of big bang, ECU's and less potent fuel.

Think it was mid way through 2002 when TC came along.

When you get tired of the needless hostility and insults - put 'em on ignore. Then more of us can concentrate on what we came here for: talking racing. Really, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

Synn is actually correct, you can’t discredit 9 titles, Rossi is right up there among the greats.

Synn yet again started a fight by discrediting another world champion, which is where all this started though then complained about the responses he got. Rossi also had to win a 10th title, he doesn’t get one for services to the sport whatever Uccio and he might want, otherwise his 9 world titles actually are discredited.

It has something Austria doesn’t have, long high speed sweepers which is supposed to be the only deficit the Ducati has. After Aragon, it appears they are much better n that dept since the winter test there.
