    Watched parts 1 and 2 last night, really awesome stuff!

    They need to do part 3....the Doohan years. Then maybe a part 4 with Criville, KRJR and Rossi. The last of the unrideables.

    So's seems in this 80's/90's footage in many crashes the gas tank goes flying. Was this a safety feature of GP bikes back in the day, separating the fuel from the engine?

    LMAO, there were no safety measures back in the day. The tanks needed to be removed in a few seconds for maintenance, so not much holding them onto the bike.

    Well that was my other thought. It's almost comical how many times they go flying.

    Another great racing movie available on Amazon prime that every one should check out is "1/10th of a second" . Staring that famous racer you all know and love, ...

    Sweatypants I am so smart! S-M-R-T... I mean S-M-A-R-T!

    "so hey guys... is this flaming canister of death that flies off and sprays you with highly combustible fuel while you're tumbling thru the grass with no armor inside your leather suit as your ankles and wrists shatter, for safety?"

    haha :flag:

    I crashed at Mid-Ohio one year, and my tank came off. And I am glad it did, for a number of reasons. The corner worker was going all crazy, cause he saw gas. I just walked over to the tank, and unplugged the quick disconnect. No more fuel. It actually takes a lot to set fuel on fire. And my tank was basically undamaged, having separated from the sliding/tumbling bike after hitting the tire wall. And having separated from the bike, there was less chance that my bike was going to self immolate, as the source of fuel was now 30 feet away from the bike.

    Just finished both, friggen awesome! Amazing how close to the edge they constantly were. It would be interesting if riders could switch generations to see how they would stack up.

    The Unrideable shows are cool...
    Just watched a documentary on the beginning and early Yamaha factory race bikes and racers! Some really cool video and pics.

    I had no idea Mamola was such a wildcard. Because of his 4 bridesmaid finishes I WRONGLY likened him to the demeanor of Dani Pedrosa...seeing him piss towards the crowd and walk the catwalk in a thong proved me entirely wrong.

    Momola is Royalty! Got to hang out with him in Valencia a few years ago.
