Here he is showing how it's done on a Kawi triple.

Those of us who watched & remember #9 may agree that Sammy Halbert (& mebbe Jeffrey Carver) have carried on Garyís role of actively questioning AMA decisions in real time on race days

Donít Tread On Me !!

Mick Doohan should get a little more love with the MotoGP series starting this weekend.


youtu.be/dg9d8dRVRK8

John brought him up here


There is no doubt a racer is a true bad ass when he wins 5 top level championships in a row!

From his profile on his home page: Mick Doohan was born in Brisbane, Australia (04.06.65) and began riding motorcycles in 1974 at the age of nine in Brisbane. Soon after he began competing in off-road events. His first notable result was finishing runner-up in the Queensland 10-12 years championship. The Doohan family moved to the Gold Coast, 80km south of Brisbane, in 1981, and Michael made his road racing debut in 1984 at Surfers Paradise Raceway, Australia at the age of 19 on a Yamaha RZ350.

In 1985 Doohan rode a Yamaha RZ500 to numerous outright and class wins, and in 1986-87 he was one of Australia's leading riders in the 250cc production class on a Yamaha TZR250. Doohan's first major career breakthrough was in mid-1987 when he was offered a guest ride on a Marlboro Yamaha Dealer Team FZR750 in an Australian Superbike Championship meeting at Winton, Victoria. He finished fifth.

Soon after Japanese Yamaha dealer Kouzou Morinaga invited Doohan to make his international debut in the 1987 Suzuka Eight-Hour event on a Super Angel Racing Yamaha FZR750. In August 1987 Doohan raced into the limelight by finishing third on the Super Angel Racing Yamaha FZR750 in the Japanese round of the Formula One TT World Championship at Sugo in Japan. By the end of 1987 Doohan had an impressive record of 26 wins from 57 starts in four years of road racing. Those performances led to Doohan securing a fulltime berth in the Marlboro Yamaha Dealer Team in 1988. He had spectacular success, winning 16 times from 33 starts in Australia and Japan on Yamaha Formula One and superbike four-stroke machines.

His most notable victories of 1988 were in the inaugural World Superbike Championship. He won the second heat of the Japanese round of the series at Sugo, and both heats in Australia at Oran Park.In Japan Doohan rode a factory Yamaha YZF750 Formula One machine to victory in the TBC Road Race at Sugo and the Mt Fuji Super Sprint. Not surprisingly, toward the end of 1988 Doohan fielded offers from Yamaha, Honda, and Suzuki 500cc grand prix teams who were keen to secure his services for the 1989 world championship.

Doohan eventually joined Rothmans Honda for his debut year (1989) in the 500cc world championship. His team-mates were world champions Wayne Gardner of Australia and Eddie Lawson of the United States. In 1989 Doohan finished ninth in the 500cc world championship. His best result was third in the West German Grand Prix at Hockenheim. He missed three races that year because of finger injuries.

Doohan maintained his improvement in 1990 and finished his second year of 500cc grand prix racing with third position in the world championship behind Americans Wayne Rainey (Marlboro Team Roberts Yamaha) and Kevin Schwantz (Lucky Strike Suzuki). The highlight of Doohan's 1990 campaign was his debut victory in the 500cc world championship in the Hungarian Grand Prix. He won by 25.442-seconds in what was his 26th 500cc start. Apart from winning in Hungary, Doohan had four other rostrum results in 1990 for top three finishes. He was second in the United States and Australia, and third in Italy and Austria.

Doohan confirmed his position among the top 500cc world championship riders in 1991 by finishing runner-up in the series behind Rainey. In 1991 Doohan had three 500cc grand prix victories, in Spain, Italy, and Austria. He finished on the rostrum 14 times from 15 starts in 1991, the most by any rider.

Nice another photo thread, I have not been to this site in awhile, I used to come for the GP threads but my ISP is so over subscribed that streaming video sucks now.

I miss being able to watch WSBK and MotoGP. Thankfully I will be getting Gigabit fiber in another year or so and will be able to subscribe to the races again.

Sorry about all the dead links in the USGP photo thread I started, Photobucket asked for way too much money so I deleted my account.

grr, photobucket ...
I need to correct this, from 1988-1990 I was just a monkey with a camera, 1991 a monkey with an autofocus camera and by 1993-1994 a monkey with a great camera and really nice lenses that I almost could use correctly.

Mike Doran is or at least was a member who was a real pro photographer back then, I was just a guy on vacation.

If my back and neck will let me spend a little time at the computer, I will try and put some the missing old race pics up on Flicker. I still suck at Photoshop and I have trouble with color.
