I Ride: DRZ400sm and KTM SXF450sm
It's all handbags at dawn to me. Gutless of Pugh to bad-mouth Dani after he's left. The whole, who is a legend and who isn't is so absurdly subjective. A lot of people consider Mamola to be a legend and I agree. He as they say, "captured the imagination" of the public. Moreover, he was just naturally likable, especially in light of his work with "Two Wheels For Life". . I saw him last summer at Assen and I was so psyched. Seeing Edwards or any number of other riders just wouldn't have that impact, but then again, there you have it: all very subjective. Ron Haslam is another guy for whom I have huge regard. Very talented, and altogether modest. For me it's a question of skills, conquests and a hard to define admixture of elements that add up to a kind of, for lack of a better word, nobility.

I agree with this, Graeme Crosby is another man who I regard as a motorcycle racing legend. I think versatility over a number of disciplines is more impressive than being a master of one.
