Those were rumors..


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: Mad Max retires from WSBK

Am I the only Biaggi fan here

He was exceptional in 250, good in 500's but Rossi was a in a different class altogether. He's had a heck of a run with Aprilia in WSBK.

As with everything else, time will move on and there will be another almost like him, but never the same.

I'm a fan of Biaggi Rooted for him to win WSBK. I'm actually sad to see him go personally.

Not at all... Talent aside, Max is very cool in person...

"Always be yourself... unless you suck." -- Joss Whedon

"Anal is just like riding a bicycle... Except without the seat." -Mark Spiegler

If you don't hang your balls out there and just do it, you'll never know what might have happened... -- Valentino Rossi

Unlike one made of concrete, the wall of adversity will eventually fall when we exert enough pressure. -- Max Edge

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." -- Dr. Seuss

Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today. -- James Dean

What? I loved watching him race! I'm gonna be bummed to see him go. He had some amazing talent!
