There is another early picture of Ago on Jorge Lorenzo's instagram account! Some spat between the two.

Haha yeah, that old chestnut. Who was the best racer ever?
Futile really, different times but racing is racing whatever the era.
Lorenzo certainly is the biggest headed racer! :)

Bantam or not, I think this chap still holds the lap record for any bike while smoking a tab.

How did he make his woodbine last until Ballaugh Bridge? When and how did he intend to light it? Fabulous picture.

Probably on his third one as he had to stop so often to fix the thing. Lit it on the glowing exhaust pipe...

Woodbines? My mum smoked these and gave up because it was bad for your health....at eighty eight.
