Then you must have first hand knowledge.. were you there??, or are you Gary Nixon!!
Those were surely great times. Flattrack racing today just doesn't do it for me. For that matter, Supperbike racing is nothing but a Suzuki parade anymore. MotoGP has gotten very boring what with traction control, wheelie control, etc... I want to see man v. machine not man aided by umpty eleven zillion gigabyte onboard engine control system. Smoke them tires!! 240 hp should get the A$$ end of a GP bike hung out.
Sorry for the rant... Just saying, the riders today don't have to "Ride" the bikes, the bikes do most of it for the rider.
