THANKS RD/LC

What the in­com­pa­ra­ble Yamaha LC gave us

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

‘ LC JOHNNIES’

Speed and wheel­ies at­tracted bad boys with DMS and Simp­son Ban­dits. No bike in the ’80s was more at­trac­tive (or sub­ver­sive).

AN IN­TRO­DUC­TION TO THE BOYS IN BLUE

If you had an LC at some point you ei­ther got pulled or binned it. Or both... prob­a­bly at the same time. There was no other way.

PRO-AM RAC­ING

There were, and have been, other one-make race se­ries. All were rub­bish com­pared to the Pro-am on ITV’S World of Sport.

125 LI­CENCE LAW

The 250LC was so good it spawned ‘100mph Learn­ers’ head­lines, fu­elling the end within two years, of 250 learner laws.
