actually Reg Pridmore won the first 3 championships, one on BMW and 2 on Kawasaki, then Wes won 2. was a cool name tho Pridmore leads the way as Mike Baldwin #43, Paul Ritter #96, Richard Schlacter #6 and Ron Pearce #97

I like Valentino Rossi. He like racing and can ride every bike.
Vale is near to his fans, it is funny to see his stunts.

I really like scott russel in the way he rode the kawasaki at daytona only he burned himself out to quick ..I am a honda fan myself yet Eddie lawson would have to be my favorite of all time.

He could ride any bike to the limit and try for more..I would like to see him ride a factory RC at daytona 200 he would make hayden
look like a kid on a scooter..

A couple of my favorite riders were Carl Fogarty and Kevin Schwantz . i saw them both at Donnington for the GP in 1991. it was Foggy's first GP and he also had a Norton. that bike sounded awesome compared to the two strokes. Foggy crashed right infont of me. Kevin won for the third time in a row followed by Wayne Rainey. i still have the pics in my photo album.

my top 5 riders i liked are,

Joey Dunlop

Carl Fogarty

Kevin Schwantz

Wayne Rainey

Mick Doohan

a shout out for Niall McKenzie also.

the late 80' and early 90's had the best racing there has been.

favorite "back in the day rider", Kenny Roberts all the way for refining the knee draging riding style and incorporating that dirt tracking sideways awesomeness.

favorite current rider, Ben Spies, hes my age and completely whopped ass this season in AMA ,elbowz out, and dethroned Matt Mladin.
