Kenny Roberts proved that he's still the King last weekend by thrashing his fearsome 145mph TZ750 flat-tracker around the Indy Mile circuit - and one spectator videoed him flying past so you can share the spectacle.

The amateur footage is shot right from the edge of the track - you'll note King Kenny avoiding the grippier 'blue groove' in favour of sliding the barking-mad 750cc two-stroke through the loose shale on the outside!

In his racing days Kenny would have backed the bike in to corners at 150mph to slow it - he's not going quite that fast here, but you can hear he's definitely got the throttle wide open!
