Kawasaki AMA Superbike Laguna Seca 1979 Race
Video is from the 1979 Laguna Seca AMA Superbike race. Features AMA
Superbike racers Steve McLauglin, Wes Cooley and Freddie Spencer.
This is one segment from the restored video player “ Kawasaki Good Times
Theatre”. The Good Times Theatre video players were used at Kawasaki
dealerships in the 1970’s for customer viewing on the showrooms.
This restored video features great Kawasaki moments from the mid to late
1970’s. Audio quality on the restored video is fair, but clearly
understandable. This is a great piece of Motorcycle History. Hope you enjoy
'89 WGP500 R1@Suzuka Rainey,Schwantz,Spencer,Gardner,Lawson
One of the BEST WGP500cc races.
Legendary Rainey vs Schwantz race.
Rainey thought there was one more lap from the lap counter at the finish
line showing "LAP2"(actually LAP2 changed into LAP1)
He didn't check HIS board and this was the big problem.
He was confident he would win, so he was so confused after the checker
That's why he refused Schwantz's hand right after the checker flag.
Many great riders and 25 factory works machines.

Mystery rider hot lap on AMA superbike
Here's a YouTube R1 video featuring the Team RidersDiscount.com YZF-R1
Superbike. The RidersDiscount.com Yamaha YZF-R1 was built to AMA Superbike
specifications using the best aftermarket Yamaha parts and accessories
available from Riders Discount. No aspect of the RidersDiscount.com R1 was
overlooked: from the Ariete 90° valve stems to the Yamaha's crossplane
engine and even the SharkSkinz bodywork was modified to make it a potent
track weapon. The only thing that stopped us from taking it even further
was AMA Superbike rulebook!
In this Yamaha R1 YouTube video, the RD R1 Yamaha does some laps at
Gingerman Raceway while evaluating some different R1 suspension setup and
R1 engine characteristics. The Yamaha is piloted by RD's own talented
mystery rider who is seen here sliding the bike into, and out of -- just
about every corner at Gingerman Raceway. When he's not spinning it up or
backing it in, he's busy wheeling the bike ... everywhere.
So, why do we have a mystery rider? At RidersDiscount.com, we buy, build
and race our own bikes to better understand what products work and what's
not worth putting on YOUR bike. And we do it all at our headquarters in
Western Michigan, so we can bolt the parts on and try them out as soon as
they become available. You can read more about our YZF-R1 superbike by
