You forgot the white wife-beater, tight straight leg acid washed jeans and white high top Nikes to go with your mullet and silk tavern jacket

He switched to Yamaha when he started GP racing. He was Kenny Roberts team mate for 2 years. He won his 500cc GP titles with Yamaha.

Right on the mark. The USGP is Yamaha's own stage. It only makes sense that they be the star.

No, I believe that this one is an actual anniversary. I believe their first bike was the 1955 YA-1.

It is a logical move by Yamaha, they are putting lots of money and effort into the MotoGP event at Laguna and the track itself, also the attendance at Laguna will allways be greater than that of the Super Speedway during bike week. The event at Daytona has been diluted and castrated to the point where it may not even exist in the near future and as we all know, the majority of the people who go to bike week don't give a rats &ss about the races.

I believe I last heard that the NBA is losing fans and money. Deservedly so, if you ask me.
