What a difference three decades makes

It's almost time for superbike season again, and I always like to wax a little nostalgic as Daytona approaches.

Videos like the one posted below were produced by Kawasaki and shown in dealerships during the late '70s and early '80s. This one features a very young Eddie Lawson, as well as none other than the great Rob Muzzy before his hair turned silver. And of course, it features the wondrous KZ1000J. When I was a little kid, this bike made my pre-pubescent motorcycle pants go completely crazy. This is a magical era in my memory, and is one of the reasons I own and ride a ZRX Lawson Replica today.
