I’d like to see the return of pit stops instead of switching bikes to continue racing. What other form of motor sports allows this?
This will sound a bit nuts but I thought the same thing while watching the video. No traction, wheelie, launch control-what would they do?I'd be curious at how today's riders (professional racers) would fare on those 500's from back then. I honestly don't think some of them are physically big enough.

Rossi rode those 500cc 2-smokers. He's ridden most all of the major versions of MotoGP bikes. I seem to recall him saying they were crazy beasts but he liked racing them.Crash spectacularly, like the rest of us would....
Racers, both car and bike, of those eras were very different than now. Skill is still required at elite racing levels, but the skill set necessary to be a champion has changed drastically. You need to be able to read a chassis still, but rather than bend it to your will as back then, you need to be able to tell the engineers how to improve it.
