I remember getting a 45rpm record from CW that had the sound of Honda's 250cc 6 cylinder GP bike being ridden by Jim Redman. He and many of the riders from that period were class acts. None of the self-absorbed histrionics you see from so many ill-mannered louts today.

I have some great records like that, one is called "Silver Arrows" and has recordings of the big grand prix Mercedes & Auto-Unions from the pre-war era. All you can hear is the supercharger, then the exhaust.

Also have "Sounds of Sebring" and "Sounds of the Isle of Mann". Got 'em from John Morton, the Jag driver. His shop was right next to a place I worked at in El Segundo. Pretty cool guy, had a Mustang Scooter and a few bikes, a Dookati desmo, old YDS Yamaha road-racer from the 60's, one of his trick Electramotive Datsun 510 Sedans, and other neat stuff like hit-or-miss motors, old Road & Track magazines from the 50's, you know, a gearhead place. .
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

I heard that bike at the IOM in '89. Wow.

Gotta go to Vintage Days to see more.
