He sounds like the real deal
I admire people who are self made especially with engineering skills.
reminds me a little of John Hackett, UK based Ducati specialist who has built WSBK/BSB spec engines for Hodgeson, Bayliss, Rutter etc

look forward to the story of the threesome at Willow Springs
you did say you had three of them in the trailer right?? lucky

yes, 3 supermonos. i didnt ride them. i was racing 125GP bikes at the time. but i went there with Jeff and 2 other buddies of mine. it doesnt stop with the monos, wait til i tell u about the trick little fuel injected RVF 400's that were there as well. it was definately a cool trip... we had all the trick ! oh yeah, dinner with AMA & Canadian Superbiker Steve Crevier & his wife was pretty cool as well then the next nite we dined with photographer Brian J Nelson.

mine too
Garry Taylor ****ed him at Lucky Strike Suzuki, I really believe that

Do you think we'll ever see a young kid get a wildcard ride on a factory bike he's never ridden before, turn up in a set off off the peg leathers because he didn't have time to get a set made and wipe the floor with WORLD CHAMPIONS (Russel & Fogerty)
Gobert was something else

1996: Gobert vs Slight at the Island



Anthony Gobert at perhaps his amazing best, taking on Aaron Slight at Phillip Island in 1996.

two of the very best from a golden era, great post
I'll tell you about our day with Slighty sometime
named my son after him,
when he was born the midwife said "oh, nice name, very Biblical"
I put her straight on one of HRC's finest
