I remember those XR69 bikes first time around and they always looked top tools a perfect blend of form and function. This time set by Robert D just proves it. Perhaps Suzuki ought to get the original engineers out of retirment to attend to their 2010 WSBK and MotoGP campaigns... I believe a guy in the UK is making new XR69 replicas - this news should make him busier than ever!

@ aeolus
WTF? Been reading your post for a while, are you as big a duesch bag as Gardner? Kinda surprised to see this from you. How many others are up on the hero's soap box thinking they know whats best for everyone else. All you people should go open a church and sell your drama some place else!

No offense intended to the church goers! It was more of a referance to the preachy nature of all the blowhards that think real roads racing should be banned, as if thair opinoin's matter. long live God, road racing and cold beer!.....that better? :)

It's not dangerous for the spectators like it is for the racers. It's there choice to make, nobody is holding a gun to there head. Some people won't stop bitching until they have foam padding on every sharp corner on the planet. If I had the money and a bit more knowledge of the Isle of Mann than I would gladly race in it. And if I died than so be it. Be the best death I could ever ask for.
