That is great, if his career wasnt cut so short he wouldve gone down in history as one of the best to ever throw a leg over a bike. Its nice to see a group of people come together to do something special for sombody else.

That's what I think of, when I think of Peter Lenz.

So cool. Reading his description of what it felt like to ride with limited sensation made me appreciate what it feels like to ride all over again.

Interesting too how impressed he was with the performance of a street bike these days.

With 3 championships on the "unridable" 500cc 2 stroke and his career long rival with Kevin Schwantz from the AMA superbike days and carried over into the Grand Pix days, I'm inclined to say he is considered as one the best!

Same here, I'm glad to see that Alpine Stars hooked him up, but I did notice his gloves......good 'ol Nankai, one of his big time leather sponsors back in the day

Thanks MV man for posting this. I saw Wayne race on the Kawi 250 at SIR in the early '80's
