Ah yes, MotoGP in the good old days.  Here we see the reigning world champion relaxing in the team's luxury motor home, while highly qualified technicians fine tune his bike with their laptops in a top notch, high tech garage befitting a factory world championship racing team.

The technician furthest away is in fact one of the most knowledgeable people to ever have spannered on a racebike. He is Kel Carruthers.

The 3 stooges across the Cortina bonnet is unknown.

And you got to love the beer cans for knee sliders that were standard issue.  :thumleft:

Those days it took a real man to crush one of those beer cans in one hand.

Greatest advantage of a factory team, is that the beer that produced the cans was not paid for by the rider himself.  :snorting:

I was told they now have their valves made by an Indian valve manufacturing company.  Apparently these guys are trusted valve manufacturers because they expertly make kiddies swimming aids and their valves never fail .....   :snorting:
