wayne gardner with the moriwaki kawasaki, was it really a good idea in the eighties to mount the twin front brake calipers off the front of the fork-legs rather than behind?, surely, it's better engineering practice to mount them behind?, perhaps it was to improve cooling but every time i see this configuration i just think of the bolts shearing off as you grab a handfull of front brake, check out the angle of the shock's, must have been like riding a rigid, love the skinny little swingarm, the lush four into one pipe, rg500 front mudguard and z1r tank, the photo must have been taken in england because wayne hasn't got any corks hanging on bit's of string off his hat.
