Hey guys,
I'm working on a painting of Randy for the Riders for Health Auction at the Laguna MotoGP weekend coming up.
I'm having a hard time finding any reference photos of his bike from 1986. I think the livery changed as well as
the Yamaha bodywork and pipe configuration to the 87 bike. (I've got the 87 Motocourse) Does anyone have any
pics or links that I may be able to reference please? Thanks for your time! :wave:

I guess you are not aware Jonny that there is a specific "Bike" section now.

Can't help with the pics Jonny though could you say 'hello' to Andrea and Randy from me, met Randy in 1991 at Donny when we did an End to End run for the charity when I worked at Fedex. Fedex pulled out of the UK shortly after and my ex-boss didn't give them the money we raised as far as I know. Not nice! Randy was great though, nice motorhome, Steady Eddie does smile too!

:wave: Cracking photo Graham, Randy 'well down to it' as usual :up: Entry to Becketts?

Look like hydraulically formed pipes, does anyone know when they first appeared?

Randy is now spending a fair amount of time in the UK as his son, Dakota, is riding in the BSB 125s for the KRP team.

My daughter was conceived in Chipping Ongar but we resisted the temptation.
