Now you guys are making my head hurt, trying to remember the details from what seems like a life time ago. I raced AAMRR in the early 80's. After the AMA changed the cc limit from 1L to 750cc a few ex superbikes showed up at the club races.Those were wild to watch up close , even in a local Experts hands.
I used to think the Loudon Classic was wild on the outside of the fence, but it was scarier in the pits, surrounded by all the lunatics. What a race track for bikes. I practically cried when they tore it up for the oval.
I was at Mid-ohio running BOTT when John Bettencourt won the Superbike race on a VT750F over the full factory bikes. That was one happy bunch of guys.
I am glad to have been there during the glory days of American road racing and flat track. I wish now that I had taken pictures at the time, but I have always been a "in the moment" kind of guy.
