Who is your favorite motorcycle racer and why?

Well, most of you know I love Nicky Hayden! Why? Because he rides a silver/red F4 and an RC51 and he is fun to watch. It blows my mind that such a young kid rides so well. I really enjoy watching him ride.

my favorite rider is kevin schwantz. i love his never say die, ride on the edge, tell it like it is style.

my favorite active rider is now john hopkins. he's just impressive as hell. i think he'll be on a 500 within 5 years. the kid's awesome. i can't wait to see him get on the superbike a couple of rounds next year.

i also think anthony gobert is incredible (but he's not really active again). too bad he can't seem to keep team owners happy (well team owners who have $ to run a team).

For me, it's a tie, between 748_Abuser and RCJohn. AWESOME racers if there ever were any!

Ben Bostrom. Any guy that can back in a big Duc & give Leeann the boot is my hero. Nicky is a close second. The kid can do it all, even with a bad haircut. I don't think John Kosinski will get to many votes.

Nicky, Who? Sorry I had to! Favorite racer of all time has to be Wayne Rainey, the man was a god on a mototrcycle. Currently racing, well I have ALWAYS been a Koscinski fan. The guy has just been awesome this year in AMA, he just needs a break on the luck. Comes in after the start of the season and he is ninth in the points and has been turning some awesome times. Hey and were from the same state so I gotta root for the homey's.

In GP's I like Kenny Roberts - The guy just has his head on right. He doesn't make mistakes and always finishes in the points.
In WSB I like Noriuka Haga - the guy just rides the wheels off his bikes. When asked what his favorite pastime is he said, "Getting laid." Pure brilliance. If anyone has a copy of the Duke video WSB '99 Review then they know how many times those British announcers screamed - DOWN GOES HAGA! I love it! I like Colin Edwards arrogance and the fact that he rides a Honda. Bostrom is up there - as previously mentioned I sure like the way he backs it into the corners. But really, my favorite racer is me.

Favorite "old timer" is Giacomo Agostini. The greatest.

Favorite retired GP is almost a toss-up between Wayne Rainey and Kevin Swantz. Kevin wins since I have met him and have his autograph.

Favorite retired AMA guy is without a doubt Jamie James. Wild man.

Favorite current rider is Eric Bostrom in US and Troy Corser in World Superbike.

Tom Kipp gets honorable mention since he is one of the nicest guys in the paddock and nobody rides the DOT tire like Tom.

BTW Tony, I don't think it is going to be 5 years before Hopkins is on a GP bike. He did an amazing job on the Yamaha GP bike in testing. First time on two-stroke race bike and was within about 2 seconds of factory riders time in just a few laps. I believe the factory rider was Max Biaggi(could have been the team mate Checca(?)).
