The photo of KR's TZ750 was taken at Del Mar a few years ago now. Roberts put on one hell of a show on that thing. Right before the Main, they rolled the bike out to the starting line, fired it up and introduced Kenny to the 18,500 standing, cheering fans.
He threw a leg over and winged it a few times, then dropped the hammer down the straight and pitched it into one in a classic full power slide which he held all the way around and then rocketed down the back straight with a perfect power wheelie.
He did two laps with that beast wound tight and making a ripping sound not heard on our Flat Tracks for a long time. Magic!
