MotoGP Pays Tribute To Marco Simoncelli At Valencia

This morning a lap of honor was ridden by every bike in the MotoGP paddock, 125’s, Moto2 and MotoGP bikes were lead around the Ricardo Tormo Circuit by Kevin Schwantz, who rode Marco’s Grisini Honda.

After the completed the lap they all assembled on the grid, along with everyone in the MotoGP paddock as they unveiled a banner that covered the enire Press Office Tower.  There were also two minutes of fireworks to say goodby.  Have a look.

GOD Speaks With Young Accolite Ben Spies

Anyone who has clue one about me knows that when it comes to motorcycle racers I admire, above all others is Eddie Lawson.  I only saw Eddie race a couple times on TV, yet I read about him as much as I could.  I did get to meet him several years back at Daytona, adn he was nice enough to answer a couple questions for me with out giving me the famous Lawson stare letting you know, you’re an idiot and I will not answer that question because it’s beyond stupid”.

While this is clearly a marketing video put out by Yamaha to promote the R1 and Ben Spies in MotoGP, any chance to hear Lawson talk about “back in the day” is appointment viewing for me, as it should be for you.

Rossi maybe the GOAT, but Lawson IS GOD.

Two Wheel Tuesday, YZR500 Replica

I know, it’s a real bombshell that I would post something two stroke related for Two Wheel Tuesday, but, come on, it’s a YZR500 replica!!!  I know they show this as an Abe replica, and that paint scheme is one of my favorites, but there is nothing preventing you from doing this a bit different.

Anyway, MCN was down in Sydney and spent some time at Mico Products going over this bike.  Enjoy!
