OK guys, I'll give you a hint because I feel generous today :D
This racer is an ex GP250 champion! But not on the Aprilia he rides in this picture.

I still think it's from the 1980's. So no to Kork Ballington (SA) 1978-79 Kawasaki. No to Harada (Jap) 1993 Yamaha.

A big maybe to Venezuelan Carlos Lavado who won it in 1983 on a Yamaha.

Carlos Lavado

Hi Mike, your big maybe is good enough to make you winner :)
It is the Venezuelan Carlos Lavado who won it in 1983 AND 1986 both times with Yamaha, so he has 2 GP 250 championships under his belt.
He was a great rider, and alao shad a nice temperament!
It seems you have become the strongest trivia player recently :) BTW where's Andy?

Hi Aris,

I finally got a job! I'm now working as a Salesman at a Kawasaki, Suzuki, Victory, Polaris dealership. Long hours but its real fun. The best part of the job is that I've had a chance to test ride many bikes.

Hi Andy :)

Welcome back, I was wondering where you ve been...
That's really good news! So you got in the biking business finally. In that case we can always ask you your opinion on any Kawasaki, Suzuki etc, And then you'll just grab one from the shop and test ride it for us ;)
