Is That Fabio? Yamaha Produces More MotoGP Video Gold

07/22/2011 @ 9:18 am, by Jensen Beeler8 COMMENTS

Yamaha had several generations of of GP legends on-hand yesterday to celebrate the company’s 50th Anniversary of Grand Prix racing. Current Yamaha team riders Jorge Lorenzo, Ben Spies, Colin Edwards, and Cal Crutchlow rubbed shoulders with Kenny Roberts Sr., Eddie Lawson, and Wayne Rainey.

Listening to the group trade stories, comparing past with present, along with giving insights on where the sport was headed was quite an experience. Yamaha had more up its sleeve though, and true to its Laguna Seca tradition, released another bit of video gold in time for the Red Bull US GP at the Californian track. Double bonus points for a Fabio cameo, watch the bar on GP comedy get raised after the jump.

    I so want that van.

    I think you have to have followed motorcycle racing as long as I have to really appreciate this skit. Every one of those guys is a genuine champion -riders worthy of being emulated. They have totally inspired me to want to win -not just in motorcycling but in life. Thanks for the memories -and the good fun.

    PS: After owning vans like that one, believe me, you DON’T want it.
