King Kenny

First off, Kenny is king but only by virtue of 3 crowns to 2 for Bazza. What a man,what a bike, what a sound. Bike magazine had a pshchadelic centre spread of kenny powersliding the T.Z. Does anyone know where I can lay my hands on a print?

King Fuckin' Kenny Roberts


No pussy  footing around at all and not even a warm up lap - jump on this bike, blip the throttle, roll out onto the track, and fuckin' gun it from the word "go" and throw it on it's side in turn 1! That's one of the reasons he's the KING!

If the Devil rode dirt track his bike would be the TZ750! That thing is wicked! It's truly a widow maker if there ever was one.

Mile dirt track is sheer lunacy - a group of guys going 100+ mph down the straight with no front brake and no run off! The "Holy Shit" look on Val's face when those guys went by says it all. The old clips with Kenny up against the hay bales where brilliant!

I remember reading articles from that weekend and how every rider and crew member in the paddock was gazing at the TZ and all the talk was about going over to the Indy Mile that Saturday night. Kenny didn't disappoint.
