I lay my vote on PG Lundmark. Put him in a KTM factory team and he'd blow the shirts off everyone... 11th place on his first go, a privateer in a team of one. Amazing stuff, as hard as they come!

You may want to look here for some awesome big twin pictures!
Whenever I'm bored, I scroll through a few pages on that thread...it's awesome! It's no ktm, but that DR big looks so cool!

not taking away from great factory riders........i guess really and honestly...after the likes financing,organizing,scrimping and saving, living a dream by maybe only ever getting a onetime entry and with determination etc etc ...any privateer.....sort of see what i`m sayin
balls of steel....

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Peterhansel & cyril despres and also the late Andy Caldecott, an absolute gentlemen and sportsman with an awesome ability on a motorcycle.
