Check out this epic battle between old-school GP greats on the fearsome 500s
WE HAD to share this classic video of the 1989 World GP at Phillip Island. Back in the day where the racing was vicious and highsides were a regular first corner feature.
Excellent, now who says that modern racing is all the better with traction control and slipper clutches.
I've got an idea for next year, lets watch re runs of racing on a Sunday starting with the 1989 season.

Infact this race was the best race i've ever seen that i bought the VHS video of it at the time from Duke, bet they still flog this as an individual race, also worth a look is the 1988 Frog GP at Paul Ricard.
I told you all back in 2002 that this four stroke racing would be shit, but would you listen, no, you just blindly plodded on regardless, claiming i was a crazy fool and 20,000 rpm four strokes would be ace....eat ya tossing words!!!!!

the way i see it is ;imagine being at the top of your game riding in a 500 gp. there you are going like fook and those four guys lap you sooo fast they make your head spin......
i think i'd go sit in the van and cry.

Ah, the good old days.
Most of the riders nowadays could be male models. I suppose that's what corporate sponsors want/expect.
Lets have a petition to bring back ugly racers.
