Needs more leg swingin' KX500.

The dude is still a badass. Music sounds like Robin Trower.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

I get goosebumps every time I watch that video. Times like that make you realize that we all aren't created equal. Some guys are put together a little bit different than the rest of us.

What was everyone else racing at the time, why was this bike so different

While attending MMI in AZ back in the day this instructor had a TZ750. He would run it around for us guys. Crazy sound and would always wonder how those guys would ride them at speed!

Mostly big Harley's. V twins. Triumph, BSA, Yamaha, and later on Honda ran 650/750 twins also.
Those bikes had tons of low end, it had always been that way.
The TZ was really designed for Roadracing.
A screamer that had its crazy hp power in high rpms.

They outlawed it a year or 2 later, saying it was just too dangerous for dirt.

What's kinda lost here, is the way he just kept moving up in the racing world.
Most all the Americans at the time, were content to stay in the States.
Kinda like motocross is now.
He could have racked up the AMA titles, but chose to head to Europe. Where the fastest guys were.
And to the big bike class.
And beat them at their own game right off.
They still love him over there,

One of the greats, for sure.

Ama outlawed it a week later. Harley was on the ama board.

Ha, they were quick about it eh?
Business as usual back then.
Bob remember the uproar when they did the same thing to Honda when Honda was kicking their ass a few years later?

Insane sound.

Valentino Rossi: "Oh look. A very fast bike. Let me grab my leathers and helmet to give this thing a ride!"
Yamaha: "Don't even think about it!"

That guy is the definition of badass.

It's impossible for a corporation or government to love you or care about you.

12/22/2017 12:44 PM

That was good. And the respect all the top riders and old mechanics have each other. Very cool.

HEY GRADY!!!

To add to this, I think the GP regulars thought KR would have trouble in a wet race since the US series didn't run in the wet. However, that's where his flat track prowess allowed him to prove them wrong. I think he won the first wet race for the season along with others. He is legendary.

The wheelie at the end is sick- sounds like he shifts right after he starts it.

I have seen it and it's pretty damn cool Bobby. And maybe not MX.....but it's moto all day long as far as I'm concerned. Pretty badass ( the video ).....But Kenny? Badass of badass's! All hail the king!

|

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Yup, you know great music ! Kind of a shame that a lot of folks have never heard of Trower, he's another Jimi Hendrix imo. Bridge Of Sighs can improve lap time and has been known to increase alcohol consumption....post moto that is. Thanks for the vid BobbyM. cool
