Who is considered to be the first rider that introduced knee dragging to Motorcycle Racing GPs?

Aris

note: I couldn't correct the spelling mistake in the thread title, couldn't delete and recreate either...

Was it Kenny Roberts Sr.??
Hi Jarel,

Did you think it would be that easy? :D

No it's not King Kenny although he's the one that perfected the technique.

A picture of the rider

Here is a picture of the rider that started the now common technique.

Maybe this will help...

Is it JARNO SAARINEN (The Flying Finn)?
Yes HiG4s, you got it!
Congrats, a bottle of Ouzo is waiting for you :)

Jarno Saarinen (The Flying Finn) was a truly great rider that died early in his promising career.
He would probably snatch 2 world championships the year he died....

How long do I have to collect :drool:

There is no limit :)
But you have to come to Greece to collect your prize!
Maybe for the Olympic Games in the summer?
