This wraps up the three part series by Yamaha, sorry but I could have about 10 more of these. Lawson's story about hacking off the Yamaha people at the end is classic Lawson!

Anyone who has clue one about me knows that when it comes to motorcycle racers I admire, above all others is Eddie Lawson. I only saw Eddie race a couple times on TV, yet I read about him as much as I could. I did get to meet him several years back at Daytona, adn he was nice enough to answer a couple questions for me with out giving me the famous Lawson stare letting you know, you're an idiot and I will not answer that question because it's beyond stupid".
While this is clearly a marketing video put out by Yamaha to promote the R1 and Ben Spies in MotoGP, any chance to hear Lawson talk about "back in the day" is appointment viewing for me, as it should be for you.
Rossi maybe the GOAT, but Lawson IS GOD.
I know, it's a real bombshell that I would post something two stroke related for Two Wheel Tuesday, but, come on, it's a YZR500 replica!!! I know they show this as an Abe replica, and that paint scheme is one of my favorites, but there is nothing preventing you from doing this a bit different.
Anyway, MCN was down in Sydney and spent some time at Mico Products going over this bike. Enjoy!
Thanks to TwoWheelBlog for finding and posting this originally. My Spanish isn't what it once was, but for parts of it, there is ZERO language barrier. Breakdowns, Cops, and vintage two stroke smoke as Jorge pilots El Follonero, from Salvados Spanish TV to the train station in Barcelona.
