Could you imagine that with the press coverage these days? 70's/80's Pit Bits would have factory riders basically flinging poo at each other

I am glad we didn't have social media back then

“Hey Johnny, looks like Mr. Hanky is driving home tonight!”- Felt

Both on Honda’s at Lake “Madera”...I’m guessing...most likely a CMC Golden State Series race.

Same here. There are sides to people I don't want to see....


Hannah was a hero for me when I was 13....but hearing him years later....he's kind of an asshole.

Some may find him arrogant or kind of a dick, but WTF ..... he’s Bob Fucking Hannah !! Lol

I’ve had a few opportunities to spend some time with him and he’s a pretty funny guy and a fantastic story teller. I spent several hours with him and Eddie Cole on a few different occasions and got to see how he carries himself when he’s able to relax. He’s a little different than most, but I dig the guy. I guess I kinda feel he’s earned the right to be who he is. He’s a fucking legend !!!
A little tidbit- He is a big time germaphobic, he carries single use hand wipes in his pocket when he’s going to be around crowds. He will shake hands until he’s out of wipes, then the hand shaking stops ! Haha

Hannah hitting the moto scene today would be like Trump becoming President. Depending on your perspective it would either be the most entertaining thing ever or your head would explode

Hannah did not win more races than RC4 but he truly is the greatest of all time in moto. No one will ever come close.

The stories are endless.

Pete Rose is a legend in baseball, and much like Hannah he's an irritating self-aggrandizing dick. Damn good ball player, though, and Hannah sure could ride a motorcycle.

If you think Hannah is/was 'irritating' you are not seeing him properly. Not irritating at all. The total opposite in reality.

I remember a speech where Hannah stated "it all starts with self love"... He's done well there.
I did hear JO like to pull his pants down in various stores etc during that time. Lovely.

I've never met the man, only know what I see/read in interviews. Maybe he's just putting on a show for the cameras, but I stand by my description. Maybe swap awkward for irritating.

O show is the guy going around taking dumps in front of people. Now that could get irritating...
I met Hannah once as a fan and he was super chill and friendly. Seemed like a regular guy to me...
