Yep! He could ride the lightning and complain that it's too slow. What a charactor
I have a poster in my garage of a young Fast Freddie dragging a knee on a 1979 CB900 superbike.
It was written in a magazine article that towards the end of Freddie's career, while riding Superbikes in the US, he would keep the throttle pinned on his superbike and control wheelspin with the rear brake while riding corners in AMA races.
He is my all time favorite m/c rider.
Some other greats from the same era
Kenny Roberts was another great rider, even though he has the personality of a rock.
My favorite is still Randy Mamola.
best rider to never win a GP championship.
The hardest working man in the biz.
He still goes around doing demo rides, test rides and various promotional things.
I always love those 1 lap races like that. Mercedes made one with some of their street cars and their F1 car about 5 or 6 years ago (I believe it was David Coulthard driving the F1 car). The slowest car was about 1/2 a lap ahead before the F1 car even left. It was pretty impressive to see it catch up. IIRC, they even had the little telemetry map thingie to.
I loved it when Freddie explained to us at Bridgehampton N.Y. how he countered a PUSHING front end with a handfull MORE of throttle to lighten the load on the front tire, thereby allowing him to make the corner, using the wheelspin to turn the bike. As David Hobbs says "BIG attachments" You should check out the video tape "Man to Man" a documentary on the Isle of Man. The on-bike footage of Joey Dunlop is beyond anything you've EVER seen.
