Anyone who has clue one about me knows that when it comes to motorcycle racers I admire, above all others is Eddie Lawson. I only saw Eddie race a couple times on TV, yet I read about him as much as I could. I did get to meet him several years back at Daytona, adn he was nice enough to answer a couple questions for me with out giving me the famous Lawson stare letting you know, you’re an idiot and I will not answer that question because it’s beyond stupid”.
While this is clearly a marketing video put out by Yamaha to promote the R1 and Ben Spies in MotoGP, any chance to hear Lawson talk about “back in the day” is appointment viewing for me, as it should be for you.
Rossi maybe the GOAT, but Lawson IS GOD.
