Question Looking for good classic races on Youtube or ?

What are some good classic races you might recommend to watch during the off season on Youtube or the MotoGP.com? The MotoGP site only goes back to 1992 however.

This one isn't a classic yet.

Here's a movie about a friend, Rhett Halprin, that went racing locally. He won his V-twin superbike class the year after the video.

It was a great race, I was there! The only time 500GP bikes ever ran at SIR (PR).

I was priviledged to be a spectator at this event.
Cool to see the 500 2-strokes, at essentially a club venue, even though it was a WERA event.
Nice to see Pittman, Sullivan, and Lind, give the visitors a wheel or more on several occasions.
Especially the outbraking manuevers on the 1000's vs.the lithe 500's.
Must have been 100lbs + difference in weight between the two. Photos from the following summer.
