Great thread. I've got some pictures stashed somewhere of Road American in 82. I'll see if I can scan them? I think I remember Eddie L winning? Or Wayne? I do remember the tasty brats.

Nice hair helmet...

Loudon must have been amazing to watch those guys hammer around.

Went there once in the 90's before it all ended.

Unfortunately no burning bikes in the back 40....

Jinx (iirc) used to be involved with an AMA BMW team. He's posted up some great insights on running Beemers. It goes without saying he knows his shit.

Do tell.
I have an uncaptioned photo from the Yosh pits and #96 Suzi next to Cooly.
Been trying to put a name to that bike.
I'll post it up.

Did Vanderlinden get tech help, go fast bits or Yosh stuff.
Seeing how Cooley's front fairing is sitting on top of his seat.

I think that's the Yosh logo on the tank.

If memory serves me here, Yosh would build you a bike or sell go fast parts. Tech help, I'm sure you got some. Remember Roberto rode a Yoshimura prepped bike before switching to Honda. And Honda would only sell parts. All I could afford for my Honda back then was a transmission and dry dump kit, which came without an oil tank, you had to make your own.
