    Really enjoyed watching this documentary about the Superbike scene in the 90's when cool Britannia ruled the world!! Foggy was one crazy talented dude!

    I slung it into dropbox & it's encoded in .avi (DivX) format, so should play on any pc or dvd player....enjoy :thumbup:

    Sounds very intriguing! I'm looking forward to find out what the Champions thought about each other and the fans... My connection is so poor I d'load it first, it'll take a bit over 4 hours.

    Hockenheim, Assen, Isle of Man, Brands Hatch - these names are all familiar to me but I haven't heard of them in a long time.

    Funny that the the picture of the bike under "When Britain ruled the world" is a Ducati!

    haha, should say when British riders ruled the world on Italian & Japanese bikes!! lol

    I think he won 3 or 4 Superbike titles on the Duke after leaving Honda.

    Probably the 90's we're the last era of the sport when riders could be characters, before the media & sponsors took all the fun out of everything.

    Also interesting is that Honda and Suzuki took on Ducati with their 1000cc versions in the late 90s but neither was successful. The VTR and the TL disappeared only a few years later while Ducati went on.

    This looks terrific but unfortunately I cant get sound. It is perhaps an apple mac thing?

    If you are on Mac use either VLC or MPlayerX (google them)
     
  9. Should've had "Rocket" Ron on his Norton! Ok, he was a champ (a Superstar to his Brit fans) the previous decade, but took to the tarmac on the rotary Norton in the early '90's, so it slips in there!

    Sorry folks my free dropbox account is almost full. I'm going to delete the download link to make space in 24hrs from now!

    This documentary is available to download from most of the big torrent sites....like the pirate bay for example.

    Cheers
