Rossi Ranch
« on: October 03, 2014, 10:57:39 am »
Here's the latest video from Rossi's Ranch. This guy loves to have fun and learned long ago that dirt track skills are almost a necessity for road racing at the MotoGP level 8)! Even Marquez is an outstanding dirttracker ;)! For you younger or newer guys, this all started back in Kenny Robert's day when he won the 500 GP championship in his rookie year on tracks he had never seen before and followed it up by winning the 500 GP championship 3 years straight. He had a dirttrack on his ranch that many European road racers would come over to the US and practice on in the off season!

YT video:


Watch, Guy Martin wins the 2015 Seniors IoM TT.

It's about taking in the most corners to your destination, not about the shortest, quickest route.

I've been watching a few of Guy Martin's shows, entertaining enough when I'm just relaxing with nothing else to do. You all that have been in the moto world for much longer than myself and may have already been well aware but just in case for those who aren't, search youtube for the following and you'll find some full length episodes:

Two things, there's an apostrophe in there, so that changes how you should read it and then there's the whole 2015 thing.
