KWS '09 AMA Superbike Series Season Review
In 2009 we had the good fortune to work with the guys at Factory Aprilia
Millennium Technologies KWS for the entire season. We documented their race
efforts as riders Chaz Davies and Ben Thompson (later replaced by Aaron
Gobert) navigated a new rules package on a bike that nobody had ever raced
at a professional level. The following is the entire season with the
exception of the Laguna Seca round. The segments had been missing from this
iteration of OnTheThrottle.TV previous to this re-edit. Enjoy...

2012 Japanese Superbike Shootout - Road Test
2012 Honda CBR1000RR vs 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 vs 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 vs 2012
It has been a couple years since we last did a Japanese literbike shootout,
because, frankly, the field has been quite stagnant for a while (save for
Kawasaki's total revamp of the ZX-10R last year). It took them another
year, but Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha have all tweaked their respective
contenders for 2012 - the CBR1000RR, GSX-R1000 and YZF-R1, have significant
changes, while Kawasaki returns for 2012 with the same
traction-control-equipped machine it introduced last year, confident of its

Supermoto Police Chase
The cop was lit up with sirens on the way to an emergency. The rider with
his music blasting, unaware pulled out in front of the cop rippin down the
Snake. The cop was just a short distance behind the rider so everyone
thought it was a police chase. Even funnier, the rider pulled over to come
up for a second run and the cop continued on. Everyone thought the rider
hid as the cop passed. When the rider came back he had no idea what was
1990 AMA Superbike & Supersport - Mid-Ohio
Coverage of the two races on The American Sports Cavalcade. Some classic
early Screamin' Chief action to be found here. :^) Also the late Larry
Schwarzbach at the place he unfortunately lost his life two years later.
Formula One at Road America
Here is an onboard video from the 2012 KIC at Road America. The car is a
1997 Jordan with with a Judd engine instead of the Peugeot that it used in
the actual Grand Prix. This was our first weekend with with the car and
were astounded with the performance. There were a few bugs as expected but
we got everything worked out. In front of me is my dad running a Benetton
F1 from the same year, with the same engine. Keep in mind this is not a
professional event, nor am I a professional driver. The only goal was to
have fun and keep the car in once piece. Enjoy!
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
