 ron haslam's formula one honda racer, from a time long, long ago, i can remember going to the tt and seeing ron, alex george and 'yer maun' joey dunlop wrestling these huge beast's, massive horsepower, skinny tyres and mechanical anti-dive, bloody hell, we've come a long way, today everything is electronically controlled, abs brakes, traction control, computer's reading and adjusting everything from throttle opening's to suspension setting's, not taking anything away from the modern day racer's, but, you have to wonder, are they just along for the ride? respect due to the old-school
