Racing royalty: That’s King Kenny Roberts Sr. on the Anniversary Edition R1 with Kenny Jr. to his right on the Kawasaki. Alpinestars owner Gabriele Mazzarolo is aboard the R1M on the left, while MO friend Kaming Ko is tailing behind. Junior said it was the first time he’d been on a motorcycle in 10 years! Upon leaving the pits, an unsuspecting trackday control rider asked the anonymously-outfitted rider on the yellow R1 whether he needed a tow around the track. “Dude, I’m Kenny Roberts,” he said.
