I beleave this was when riders(particularly Garry Mccoy) discovered what they could do with the new tyres that where introduced at that time.... Previously if riders had done that they would've shredded their rears. Lol!But maybe now you realise why we oldies wish motoGP would go back to no electronics.... Not all riders have the throttle and weight shift skills to be able to control those kind of slides without electronics, and that's what made the difference between the top riders back in those days... Riders with real excellent rider skills and and those who where just normal good riders, unlike today where cause of the electronics most riders could be up with the front guys if they had the power to stay there; they might as well be on a scalextric track, hence we mostly see them bunched up together... The differences in rider skills sets have been mostly leveled-out cause of the electronic aids they have these days.... No one particularly special, and if you think a guy like marquez is special then that might just make you realise how special people like Sheene, Roberts, Spencer, Lawson, Shwantz, Rainey, Gardner, ect, etc must have been back in the day when riders where real riders using their raw skills to control their bikes. Back in the old days it was just magical to see each individuals rider skills and riding styles on display... Today they all seem same, same..... Just a sign of the times and degeneration of the sport these days I guess - (sigh). Up the revolution.... Bring back the 2T GP500 Category!!
