Klaus Enders, multiple TT winner and six times sidecar world champion between 1967 and 1974, has passed away two days ago at the age of 81.
He will be remembered as the most successful german motorcycle racer and the last man to win the sidecar WC with a BMW flat twin (although heavily modified by Dieter Busch).
Rest in peace.

Very sad news, he was the best, the smoothest. He was my hero, from seeing him at the TT in the early 70s,  inspiring me to work in racing.
In 1973 he won the first seven rounds of the World Championship and didn't have to go to the last GP in Finland he was so far ahead. 
He dominated sidecars at a time when there were many very great riders, on proper tracks.
A true hero for all generations.
