    GREAT! About 30 minutes(just right length for me) history on Ducatis World Superbike in early 2000’s and evolution of 916 into 1099 models.

      Ditto, thanks for sharing Jerry! Very entertaining, fast paced, informative. Now to find a documentary on that 2002 WSB season. (if my COVID fueled mind doesn’t deceive me)…

      Edit: I hope he puts one together (2002 WSB season doc), this guy is a tremendous historian…

There is nothing I find more satisfying than looking at something cool and beautiful and thinking "I made that". - 6
