Superbikers_1986.jpgWe're really failing to get into either MotoGP or SBK this season, probably because we can't watch either on television. There was a time, however, when motorcycle racing was a ratings leader in this country. That show was called "Superbikers." The race pitted world-class riders against the half dirt/half pavement track at Carlsbad Raceway. 1986 saw Ricky Graham racing Chris Carr, Bubba Shobert and Jeff Jones in the dirt bike heat and Eddie Lawson taking on Jeff Ward and Wayne Rainey. Hell, it's worth it just to see Shobert's cured meat emporium. I guess we have the kart race at Laguna this year...>
