Sideburn Number 43!
Dirt track on asphalt? What kind of oxymoron thought that up? Turns out a genius called Ken Lilly. We have a bunch of archive photos reliving the lunacy of life in MARS - Motorcycle Asphalt Racing Series.

We love the idea of it, but our collarbones tingle at the thought.
Of course, there's plenty of dirt too,
