King Kenny Rides Indy

Here's a video of Kenny Roberts riding his TZ750 flat tracker at Indy at this year's Mile. He's still got it!

I love the look on Rossi's face as he watches the racers go by.

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!

Re: King Kenny Rides Indy

The TZ flat tracker has been a favorite motorcycle story of mine since I first saw Take it to the Limit 30 years ago. There was an article in Motorcyclist last month about the bike, but to hear Kenny's interview and see him on the bike again....wow. Thanks Dave.

Re: King Kenny Rides Indy

I still remember the pictures of how he'd drag off the toes of his boots......He's probably the reason for sliders.........That two stroke 750 had to be about like riding a chain saw 34 years ago let alone now.............He still has that rockin' attitude.................and a few pounds, like the rest of us...................
