different breed

of men back then, smoke fags get pissed shag dolly brollys, now its go to gym eat pasta say yes a lot. In the 80s they were loony tunes on loony two strokes. Of course the riders today are better because factorys spend millions making sure their atheletes are at the top of their game and not smoking or getting pissed but expect some dolly birds still get it. I will let you know after Goodwood when I force myself at any bike racer I come across.

Different breed indeed...

... & Rossi belongs to the old party crowd...

'In the past it was more just about bravery but now everybody is more serious and very athletic. They diet and train a lot and don't have a normal life. I think it's important to be able to have fun too!... In the last few years, the sport has become too serious and so have the riders."

Same breed, different era.

The best of their time would still be at the front in any sport/walk of life regardless of era imo. Long may it last :)

diversity, bravry and development

All the current riders are great at what they do, its a shame the organisations running motor sport have castrated it with over regulation. just like the nanny state we live in the risk aversion and PC paranoia is out of controll.

In Freddies day, he rode 3 and 4 cylinder, V and Square layouts in the same season, just from one manufacturer. There was and era where you could build and race anything that qualified, brilliant and exciting, now the bikes are so congruent and digitally enhanced the riscs, skill and variety are nowhere near as high and correspondingly the fans interst and commitment is at a level of soccer fans, cheering for thier colour or favourite for nationalist or other reasons that may not be enven motorcycle related.

Dont get me started on the two stroke ban!
