Wayne Gardner rides all the 2009 WSBK bikes, likes the Aprilia RSV4


Wayne Gardner, who won the 1987 500cc motorcycle grand prix racing world title aboard a Honda NSR500, recently rode all the 2009 WSBK machines at the Portimao circuit in Portugal. And which machine did he like the best? No, not the Honda Fireblade, but the Aprilia RSV4! Also, he says the Yamaha R1 probably has the best engine, but doesn't handle all that well, which makes Ben Spies championship win even more impressive. Watch the video for more...

Do as your namesake says and stay in the garden.

It's been two decades since Gardner stopped racing in the GPs. What he thinks or says about WSBK bikes isn't really relevant anymore. No disrespect to Gardner, but hey, he's old now... :-)

The young know everything!

Don't assume age has anything to do with it, with age comes wisdom, you'll find out.

Good Ol "Digger" Gardner is a former World Champ and still knows how to ride a bike (be it a GP bike or these WSBK machines) a helluva lot better than ANY of us posting here. You're a complete FOOL if you think Gardner doesn't have the multiple decades of racing knowledge to make comments in the video. Anybody who thinks they're better at making comments than Gardner probably hasn't competed against the likes of Rainey, Schwantz, Doohan, Lawson, Spencer, etc -AND BEAT THEM ALL in his day. He's a VERY well respected rider and thoughtful commentator to say the least.
