just a nostalgic thought, or two,

I was with my dad at Ginger Hall, classic practice mgp 1993. The 350cc Benelli went by the once, before Dave Roper dropped her at Kerrowmoar. Now that we have a 350cc MV3 howling round the big course, I wonder if Team Obsolete might bring the Benelli over again, to relive the Ago / Paso days at the TT? I couldn't find any footage of them on the island together, but found this smashing wee film from 1968 at Modena:
Ago/Paso, 68

Fantastic youtube stuff, although I raced in late 70's early 80's I love the 60's most of all. Wonder why Paso and Ago were in such a rush was it to get back to the bird who keeps popping up on the left of screen ! Whilst on the subject of sixties how would you rate the Duke Champions Video- DVD on Jim Redman It's one of my faves.
