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

Not quite.

John had exactly one motorbike GP victory that was not on an MV and that was on a 250 NSU in 1955. He joined MV in '56 and left them at the end of 1960 to concentrate on F1.
51 MotoGP starts and 38 wins is not a bad ratio!

In 1960 he won both the 350cc & 500cc championships while placing 14th in the F1 championship.

I've seen John at the Goodwood Festival of Speed twice, once on an MV and the other time on his BMW 255 Cpmpressor.

A great guy who will be greatly missed.
