Yamaha really took hold of the viral-video idea a couple of years ago, and we’ve been treated to a few funny videos since, including JT as the post-boy at Yamaha HQ, and of course the latest Edwards/Spies ‘Man-cation’ offering.
Some of you may have already seen these vidoes, some may have not, but there’s interest to be had.
Slightly more sober are these chats between Ben Spies and four-times grand prix champion Eddie Lawson. What’s funny in this instance, is that you couldn’t ask for two blokes with less charisma in front of a camera, from the world of motorcycle racing. Funnier still, to hear Eddie slamming Ben’s wish to ride a 500cc two-stroke Yamaha, because he’d just think it was “a piece of crap”!
Some of it is slightly contrived, especially the R1 worshipping, but what else did we really expect? Still, there’s plenty tid-bits of info to be had, and of course there’s a link for us old gits by having Lawson there talking to America’s newest hope of emulating himself, Rainey, Spencer, Schwantz, Roberts and the other one (Hayden).
