Day one to when I retired, so yes, there’s a little on Scandinavia ‘89. That said, my book is far more than race reports.

Thanks for the correction Paul. I should’ve know that it was Mike. I do remember now. I’ve changed it (and also on my Facebook post). I was racing Maico in 1985 (at least for part of the year until Kawasaki picked me up). In January I think I came over ... more »

Just watched ‘Phenomenon’ (2020) on Amazon Prime. You have to pay a few bucks to watch it but it’s a really, really good factual documentary, with a lot of really credible witnesses and contributors. No ‘Ancient Aliens’ nonsense here.

Anybody watch/listen to the Rogan/Tyson podcast? Mike admitted that back in his prime he would get sexually aroused at the thought of hurting his opponent.
