@ Samas....I've been following bike racing since 1955, and you? You mention Duke, what about Bill Lomas? Both were just before I got interested in the sport. I was a big fan of Phil Read too, any thoughts?
There was room for individualism in those days. Times change and I change with them (4 kids makes sure of that) so I don't say those days were better than today, just different. I have things that I don't like about today, one line racing, Manufacturers running the show, only midgets being successful etc. etc. Having said that I am quite happy to be living in this era or any other. Best sport in the World (the only one in my opinion).
Steady Eddie was one of the greats and doesn't get much recognition, I sometimes wonder why.
Polls are fun, nothing more, it does keep the close season a bit more bearable I suppose.
