Kenny Roberts Hero to Zero

The new Yamaha video tribute to KR's recent Indy reunion with his TZ750 is nothing less than fantastic.
I loved the way he blasts off the line bangin gears and then pitchin it out in the cushion. The King still Rules.
Here is the rest of the old story. After his fairy tale victory on the widow maker, he gets back on his docile 750 twin for the next race of the '75 season and eats it big time. When you rip the front wheel off you know you've been through the mill.
