Some of the roadracing greats are in this video. The bikes have come a long ways in 40 years.



I was a young guy who couldn't wait until I could ride a Japanese I-4 bike on the streets.

Kind of interesting to see the old Laguna Seca layout, too.

Yes, interesting indeed but it was a pretty boring layout to be honest. That said, I love this classic stuff.

Thanks for the post. In 1982 I bought a brand new 650 cc Yamaha Seca. The advertising said “ Beat the Europeans to the next Cafe”. laugh

It is remarkable how far bikes and cars have come since those dsys.
