The Memphis AMA Superbike race in 1987 with Kathleen Coburn on her Nescafé Suzuki about to get lapped by the ultra-fast trio of Wayne Rainey (6), Bubba Shobert (67) and Doug Polen (23). That was a miserably hot weekend and riders out numbered the spectators. Needless to say the series never returned to the track.
Wes Cooley is most remembered for his storied AMA Superbike career, but he also did some WERA National Endurance racing for Team Suzuki Endurance. Here is a fairly rare photo of Cooley racing at WERA National Endurance race in Talladega, Ala., in 1988.
No big story here, just a cool little happy snap (taken with my little $99 Kodak Easyshare C315) of a trio of beautiful MV Agusta racebikes at the Barber Museum. These are some of the most gorgeous racing motorcycles ever built.
