    Thanks for that. One of the only reasons I still have one subscription to a motorcycle magazine is Mat Oxley.
    In the early 80's when we finally got access to cable was when I got to see GP motorcycle racing. Not a lot of chances prior to that other than King Kenny coming to Laguna in the middle 70's when I lived in California.
    Prior to cable I relied on Cycle Magazine reports a month or so after the fact. Those were read and reread.

    Writings of this sort bring a lot of that back and as Mr Oxley states, perspective.
    Very good.
    Still wish the Ducati were faster.

    They're fast. They just don't turn worth a damn.

    Looking at this, imagine how good a rider you'd be now if you started at that age. Me? Wouldn't matter. Too tall. But some of you other short fuckers might be able to actually ride now if you had a GP feeder class to start off in.

    Good, Speed is a cancer. WSBK needs a pay service like Motogp.
