    Back before Superbike racing became so dominant (amidst a number of "proper" GP racebikes in Yvon Duhamel's pit) I remember thinking...WTF is this thing! Or words to that effect. (I WAS just a kid!) :lol3

    Lang Hindle, Yvon Duhamel et al Shannonville circa 1982. Yes the commercials of men in Speedo's with excessive amounts of facial hair drinking Molson's on the beach got hacked out :rofl

    Man,could that be over 25 years ago already?
    I suppose those bikes aren't even the oldest class of vintage machines running at Shannonville these days!

    Lol FZR 400 & 600's are now in "vintage" races, Cadillac is using Led Zeppelin in car ads, and a hot co-ed in a bikini top held the door for me calling me "sir"...I'm officially old :cry
