Indeed Xavier, with those tyres, brakes, geometry, fairings, the metallurgy of the engine components & tracks without safety those guys had balls of steel to ride them like they did.

Everytime I see those old clips I am left mesmerised by them, sure today's guys go way faster but with the safety of the tracks and incredible technology available to them they are not quite 'those daring young men of yesteryear.'

Thanks for the post Stephen :)
