Australian Wayne Gardner
plied his trade when the
500cc factory bikes were arguably
at their hardest to ride
and in which the competition
in the class involved
legendary peers such as
Wayne Rainey, Randy Mamola, Kevin Schwantz,
Eddie Lawson, Freddie Spencer and Mick Doohan.
His 52 podiums, 18 victories and 1987 premier class title win
came during one of the
toughest decades of
competition in the sport.

Well, I had to make sure I okayed getting pictures of Dick Mann before I could post this opinion. Sometimes the internet sucks because every Tom, DICK, and Harry is a star for Iron MANN sake.

Dick Mann and Doug Chandler are in an elite group that could ride it all. Grand National Champion use to be a combined discipline, if you don't know. This post is Dick's Space. He once lost his throttle grip at Ascot and yet won the race. He had a bleeding blister on his right hand. True bad ass with the scars and trophies to prove it.

A flat track master.



Daytona winner, the same Dick :

Isn't Gardner's son a Moto2 racer?

1971 Daytona 200 podium: Gene Romero (AMA GNC in '70), Dick Mann (Daytona winner in '71) and Don Emde ...

Quote:
In 1971, Mann became the
first rider to complete motorcycle racingís
Grand Slam, winning in all forms of
AMA Grand National Championship racing:
mile, half-mile, short track, TT and road racing.

Mann made a brilliant comeback at age 37 and
won his second AMA Grand National Championship,
becoming the oldest rider in the
history of the series to win the title.

In 1975, Mann returned to his trail riding roots
and qualified for the United States International Six Days Trial team
(now known as the International Six Days Enduro)
and competed for his country on the
Isle of Man earning a bronze medal.


... racing the BSA Rocket 3 in 1972 ...

... no gloves = total BA ...

Niall MacKenzie. Badass as fuck. In his Cadburys Boost days, I watched him crash out of BSB at Knockhill in round 1, then duct tape an oversize boot to his broken ankle and come back out to win round 2. He was the oldest man in the field ...

WOW this thread delivers.




Who else was at the San Jose Mile when Jim Rice won after he broke his shoulder in the race. now that is bad ass.

"He also won his home race, the San Jose Mile with a broken left shoulder after clipping the first-turn inside guard rail with his shoulder on the eighth lap of the National final.

"The impact tore my left hand from the grip and I was amazed I did not crash," Rice recalled. "My adrenaline kicked in and because the track was smooth, I found I could hang on. The leader, Gary Scott, dropped out and I moved up to third. During the last five laps, Kenny Roberts and I swapped the lead each straightaway with me always leading at the finish line. The final turn was a test of courage for both of us and I squeaked out a win over Kenny with just inches to spare. When I stopped, I was taken by ambulance to Alexian Brothers Hospital. There wasn't a victory celebration, but I had a smile on my face just the same." "

1971, Jim Rice in action at San Jose with
#2 plate, working up from the back, and
Gene Romero running #1 as the
‘70 AMA GNC ...

Quote:
Rice prided himself on building
and maintaining his racing equipment.
Nine of his 12 National Championship wins
were on his self-built and
self-maintained motorcycles.
... how cool is that?

... one of my happiest
motorcycle experiences
was getting to stand
next to the fence in Turn One
at the San Jose Mile and
watch the pros throw their
XRs into that turn at 120 mph ...
absolutely blew my mind ...

As pointed out in his HoF entry, Mr. Rice
was the racer featured in the Sacramento Mile
crash in "On Any Sunday" ...



... ouch ...

ha! I'd heard the "On Any Sunday" crash bike
was a British triple, and his well written
HoF entry talks about the triple ... here's a pic:



... pic calls the bike a BSA Rocket 3 ...
Dave Aldana is #38 ...
