I wouldn't count that "redneck" out in a fistfight.

Good for him, retiring on top like a boss. It's the way every racer wants to end their career.

Love him or hate him, you have to respect his accomplishments. He was so more skilled at something we all love then any of us could hope to be.

If anyone hasn't read "Ring of Fire" yet, I highly recommend you do.

I'll second that. By far the best MotoGP book I have read.

Wow, the end of an era.

Sad to see him go, but happy he's going out on top. Thanks for all the memories Max.
