Sjaak when around the world twice on an R1.

They asked him why on earth did you pick an R1 over dual-purpose bikes?
He said he couldn't kill the R1. It was so reliable that he chose it again for his second trip.

Off roading on an R1 I'd like to see that! Yea I have never really paid attention to Motorcycle racing that much. I'm ashamed to admit before I joined this forum I had never heard of Joey Dunlop. I am 32 if that helps rationalize things? I definitly want to pick up one of the documentarys on him, mabe your #1 there "The Doctor, the Tornado, and the Kentucky Kid". Thanks for sharing your list and educating me!
