Laguna Seca Superbike race: 1979

Tue, 09 Nov 2010

Got to apologise for the mogadon-inspired soundtrack but this 1979 Kawasaki promo vid' is worth watching just for the footage of Freddie Spencer and Wes Cooley.

Watch the slo-mo of Cooley's GS1000 Suzuki on the brakes. It's horrendous. Check out the massive fork dive and marvel as the wheels go in and out of line.

Those fellers earned their dollars, that's for sure.
