    It's the dude. Kenny Roberts! He's back for one more try at a much older age!
    Gotta love it!

    I remember years ago it was televised and I did follow it. If I recall, there used to be one track that had a pretty big jump on the one straight which was pretty wild on those bikes. But I do read cyclenews almost everyday and flat track is covered by them.

    The bike was outlawed by the AMA. That in itself is insane. But man, back in the day? Kenny Roberts was The Man.

    2 stroke, 4 cylinder, 125 hp beast.

    Kenny Roberts: "They don’t pay me enough to ride that thing."

    Nice find, Spazz [​IMG]

    Sorry, I see your original vid now. I was on my tablet before and it didn't show the link for some reason.
