I'm not sure how many of you are interested in MotoGP or the history of the sport, but I found this video about Barry Sheene very interesting and fun to learn about. I know about Barry's very short life, but I can always learn more. I knew this already, but Suzuki just didn't have all their ducks in a row at the time Barry was racing. The only time I think Suzuki did a good job is when Kevin Schwantz joined the team. Kevin made Suzuki GP racing in the 80s. Now Suzuki is leaving today's MotoGP racing. Enjoy. 馃槑馃憤

I do to. Even though the shadows of Giacomo Agostini, King Kenny Roberts, Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey, Mich Doohan, Eddie Lawson, Randy Mamola, Kevin Schwartz, Freddie Spencer and others were all looming Barry was still a great road racing force in MotoGP and yes under rated.

There's also a YouTube video out there I watched a while ago - "Barry Sheene this is your life". I think was the title.
