"I remember one race; Mike Baldwin got into me going into the Corkscrew, bent my exhaust pipe, and it shut down one cylinder. And I remember thinking, "Oh no, the thing's quittin'!" remembered Kenny Roberts 'The King,' three-time 500cc Grand Prix world champion. "So, around turn two, they're leaving me, I look down and see the exhaust pipe's bent up and I thought "Aha!" Luckily it was hot, and I was able to kick it back down. All the way from turn two to turn four, I'm kicking this thing. Then it started running alright. Then I caught Mike and won the race."
