Agree , some truly magnificent machinery , I missed out on the bike races but saw the demonstration session after lunchtime . The Norton V4 superbike was awesome to see and hear , pity I didn't get to see the Norton rotary running , I don't know if it did during the day . The RG500 (#10) was great to see as was the 2 Honda RS250's , the chance to see GP bikes out on the track again was really a lekker feeling .

3rd photo is of a YAMAHA TZ750. The most successful production racer of the modern era, and 10 consecutive wins in the Daytona 200 race.

#10 is a Suzuki RG500, a square 4 two stroke, effectively two twins behind each other and the cranks coupled by a gear.

Thanks Jagsding, appreciated since I could not be there.
