A lot of history there. His bike days were remarkable.

Riding Gran Prix circuits in the 50's-60's, he was a tiger in races. He rode a few makes, most notably MV Agustas with 4 cylinder motors, cleaning up on other prominent race machines by Triumph, Norton, and AJS, which were all technically inferior. He kind of felt those wins were meaningless because of the superior machine. But then he had a falling out with MV, started riding for Norton and still won! His time preceded Mike the Bike Hailwood. A lot people wanted to see them go head to head.
