:sad: me too! I watched him race in the Transatlantic series (1975 I think), the days when everyone used to say "the yanks don't race in the rain" and then shut up when Kenny Roberts humiliated everyone at Mallory park while it was SNOWING!




That's the one! 8-)

I remember buying my first bike, a 1954 AJS 350 16ms for 17 shillings & sixpence in 1971 & it was running. My friend made the wise choice & bought a Honda 90 sport for £1 & 2 shillings. He was always on the road, so I bought a Honda plastic fifty for 10 shillings & joined him. Lost the AJS in a game of cards & wasn't that unhappy about it.
Bollox I was so young once.
