    I wasn't watching racing in '89 but reading this makes me wish I was. I've read this more than a few times on soup and I've always enjoyed it.. a great short story about an exciting racer.

    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Ask anyone who attended the World Superbike round at Mosport in 1989 and they can attest to what a spectacular rider (and character) he was.

    That's a pretty cool story. I had never heard of this guy before.

    My first new set of racing leathers were Texports.....I custom ordered Falappa replica's but Texport sent there factory Bimota leathers instead because they were a little pissed with him for some reason and wouldn't duplicate it.
