Away from the pressures of being a Grand Prix racer in the days when fierce on-track battles and unexpected highsides were common place, Wayne Gardner throws a Honda VFR750F around Oran Park in Australia.

The bike that Wayne is likely to be riding is special VFR750F, that was given the codename '6X'. The VFR was an experiment with prototype components including titanium valves and magnesium flat-slide carburetors, the result was the bike that weighed less than a factory RC30.

Plenty of power there then, judging by the smooth way the front wheel came up onto the grid area.

I know where this bikes is currently and it is in very good hands and is currently being restored. I have actually had a few rides on it a few years back ! It does have magnesium flat slides !

Why do the twunts who put these film clips together not realise that we don't want to hear some poxy music from their private collection; we want to hear the fucking bike!

Apart from that - great stuff.
