There's nobody like Rossi.
Never been and hardly will.

I'm reading his auto biography now.
When I grow up, I'm gonna be like him.


Wait.
I'm older than him...

Yep. Rossi is Gawd. One of if not the greatest. I don't think there is a superbike counterpart. Nobody stands out. Maybe carl foggerty back in the day, but I never really liked that guy.

Here is some info to help w/ differemces between Superbike, Supersport, Superstock and Formula Xtreme...

Quote:
AMA Superbike Championship

The headliner in U.S. motorcycle road racing is the highly competitive AMA Superbike Championship. Superbikes are racing motorcycles that are modified versions of machines originally sold for street use. The concept of Superbike racing is similar to that of championship stock car racingóto have machines that visually resemble production models, while allowing freedom to the tuner to improve the power and handling characteristics of the machine.

Superbike class rules apply to 901-1000cc four-stroke motorcycles. For details on these rules, refer to the AMA Pro Racing Rulebookís Equipment Standards section available from amaproracing.com's Rulebook & Bulletins section.

Final AMA Superbike races are normally 100 kilometers in length. Timed qualifying is used for AMA Superbike races. For times qualifying events, a riderís best lap time must be within 108% of the fastest qualifying riderís best lap time in order to pre-qualify for one of the available grid positions in the final.

Riders currently, or at the end of the previous season, listed in the top ten in points in one or more classes, will be permitted one provisional start per season in each of those classes. Such riders will be placed on the back row of the grid should they not qualify through the normal procedure. Riders eligible for provisional starts must notify the race manager in writing of their intent to use a provisional start within one hour of the conclusion of qualifying for each class they are requesting the provisional for.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


AMA Supersport Championship

AMA Supersport, along with AMA Superstock, is the closest motorcycles to showroom stock in the AMA Superbike Championship, and is based on production four-stroke street motorcycles. The motorcycles in this class generally provide some of the closest racing around the racetrack, and use the following engine displacements:

0-600cc 4-stroke four- and twin-cylinders
Race length for AMA Supersport final events is 60 kilometers.

Timed qualifying is also used in these two classes. For timed qualifying sessions, a rider's best lap time must be within 110% of the fastest qualifying rider's best lap time in order to pre-qualify for one of the available grid positions in the final race.

Riders currently, or at the end of the previous season, listed in the top 10 in points in one or more classes, will be permitted one provisional start per season in each of those classes. Such riders will be placed on the back row of the grid should they not qualify through the normal procedure.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AMA Formula Xtreme Series

AMA Formula Xtreme are allowed the largest displacement engines in the AMA Chevrolet Superbike Championship and are based on production four-stroke street motorcycles. The motorcycles in this class must have the following engine displacements:

450cc-600cc multi-cylinder
595cc-750cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder
850cc-1350cc air-cooled twin-cylinder
AMA Formula Xtreme final races are normally 60 kilometers in length, except at the Daytona 200, where the race is 200 miles.

Timed qualifying is used in AMA Formula Xtreme. For timed qualifying events, a riderís best lap time must be within 110% of the fastest qualifying riderís best lap time in order to pre-qualify for one of the available grid positions in the final.

Riders currently, or at the end of the previous season, listed in the top ten in points in one or more classes, will be permitted one provisional start per season in each of those classes. Such riders will be placed on the back row of the grid should they not qualify through the normal procedure. Riders eligible for provisional starts must notify the race manager in writing of their intent to use a provisional start within one hour of the conclusion of qualifying for each class they are requesting the provisional for.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


AMA Superstock Series

AMA Superstock, along with AMA Supersport, is the closest motorcycles to showroom stock in the AMA Superbike Championship, and is based on production four-stroke street motorcycles. The motorcycles in this class generally provide some of the closest racing around the racetrack, and use the following engine displacements:

745cc-1000cc multi-cylinders
The final race for both classes is normally 60 kilometers in length.

Timed qualifying is used in AMA Supersport and Superstock. For timed qualifying events, a riderís best lap time must be within 110% of the fastest qualifying riderís best lap time in order to pre-qualify for one of the available grid positions in the final.

Riders currently, or at the end of the previous season, listed in the top ten in points in one or more classes, will be permitted one provisional start per season in each of those classes. Such riders will be placed on the back row of the grid should they not qualify through the normal procedure. Riders eligible for provisional starts must notify the race manager in writing of their intent to use a provisional start within one hour of the conclusion of qualifying for each class they are requesting the provisional for.
