Re: Quiz (Giannis)

What did they call they call the factory bike? YZF, YZR, OW01? He rode with Mike Baldwin, he was impressed by the ride put in by the Malboro Yamaha Australia guys, Mike Dowson and Kevin Magee, they rode basically a kitted street bike, FZ750, Roberts and Baldwin were on the full factory bike and pretty much diced with the Aussie pairing all race. 1986?

Re: Quiz (kiwigav)

Mike Baldwin was '82 AMA Superbike champ on a Honda... so could it be... that King Kenny rode... a HONDA!?!?

Roberts also rode a V-Max around his private dirt track for an article in Cycle News.

Kenny Roberts Suzuka 1985 team Tech21 (team mate Taira) They won the race.






and Kiwi you were right it was a FZR750.

His second appearance in Suzuka (1986) was aboard the YZF750 Lucky strike (team mate Baldwin) came second and i think this was his last Race in his carrier





The next year managed a team with HJohn Kosinski on the handlebars of the Luckytrike bike but they managed only 8th with his team mate Reyborn(?)
