Here is a video of me at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with a speedo and laptime overlay. I'm comparatively slow to a lot of the guys on the board, so you can imagine how much faster they are in the corners

Rossi is the GOAT no doubt,but this is the kind of i dont particularly care for.you could tell he came in too hot to slow the bike and make the turn(foot dragging) and in result ran Sete out of the track.he would of came in second otherwise and knew it.

I have to go with old skool for several reasons:

I was single back then, so I could watch the races in person.
I didn't have kids back then, so I could watch the races on TV.
I was younger back then, so I could kid myself about getting my fat off the couch and doin it.

Dammm, that really is old skool. I wonder what Racer X will say about the gear, look at the helmets, the googles, the leathers, he was not even wearing gloves.
Videos like this just show how ignorant I am to the sport. Then again in 1964 I was still swiming in my father's .
Pretty cool Grinchy, if you find more, keep them coming.
