man, Wayne Gardner has to be one of the most underrated world champions of all time, he had the misfortune of having to run against Lawson and Spencer in his early years, then Rainey, Schwantz, and might Mick in his later years.
Even Gerry Burgess says he is one of the most talented riders ever to throw a leg over a 500 tho. I think the quote was soemthing like "I mean no disrespect, because Wayne is a great guy, but he can't develope a bike to save his soul, he just has this superhuman ability to have either the throttle or both brakes totally pinned, and be able to wrestle the bike straight and not crash, it's uncanny, but leaves the developement almost entirely up to Mick."
