Kenny Roberts on the mighty TZ750

Mark Roberts sent this movie made by himself.

Here are some pics of my favorite bike of the Indy MotoGp and Mile weekend. It is KR's TZ750 flattracker, 34 years after it won the Indy mile. He did 3 Hot laps. It was a definite Crowd pleaser!

In the pit's it was a who's who of riders that were there gawking at the bike and the man. I saw Kel Carruthers, Wayne Rainey, Colin Edwards, Valentino Rossi, Scott Russell, Nicky Hayden and Cook Nielson. I heard Kevin Schwantz was in the crowd too but I didn't see him.


I also took a video of the bike being warmed up in the pits prior to the Hot Laps.
The sound of the 4 open expansion chambers was like music to a 2 stroke enthusiast.
