I agree, Monster. The level of competition was also higher in Lawson's day. When you win 4 World Championships against the likes of Spencer, Gardner,Rainey and Doohan you've proven yourself to be as good as it gets. I was fortunate enough to chat briefly with Fast Eddie when he came out of retirement to win the Daytona 200 and he's a likeable guy as well as being a very special, gifted rider.
The videos are good. One legend talking toa future one!

This is a Yamaha add dressed up as a documentary, However, Eddie Lawson is the real deal.

This guy is the real GOAT

Changed manufactures and teams 3 times, won W.C.'s on 2 of them, won races on all three

And what about the bikes he rode, Rossi said the 500's were scary, yet the bikes that Lawson won on were the pre-big bang, pre-unleaded fuel monsters. The '88/'89 NSR's (that Lawson won a W.C. on and described as "like riding death") are regarded as the most evil GP bikes ever made

Rossi is brilliant and IMO the WROAT (winningest rider of all time), but he no comparison to Lawson when the equipment used is compared (and no, I'm not American)
