you can be that guy all you want...build you a dirt tracker and find some races!! i have been that guy (minus the racing success and the mansion in beverly hills) for the last 10 years. if i can do it, anybody can! framed bikes are going pretty cheap right now because they will be absolete for pro racing in 2009
Was reading about him in Kevin Cameron's book, a compilation of editorials and stories from over the years. Sounds like a unique personality. Honda would basically script his press interviews so he would not be tempted to interject any of his own personal thoughts about the bike/the company/the competition or anything else Big Red might not be too interested in (sounds like he usually had plenty). Very cool insight into big time racing organizations.
