So I'm reading my weekly Cycle News

And there is this blurb about Kenny Jrs response to criticims of the changes to Laguna Seca. Sounds very Kenny SR to me. Haha (and yes I had to type all this).

Team Roberts Kenny Roberts Jr. is a member of the GP Rider Saftey Commission that requested the changes. He'd only seen photos of the work, but was pleased that it had been done.

"They've done everything we've asked them to on the safety side of it," he said.

Roberts Jr. wasn't concerned with the wind in the turn-six-run-out.

"Someone said he [Chandler] said it was windy, because there's f---ing walls and you're in a f---ing tunnel before," he said. "And the riders and me and everybody said this is f---ing dangerous. So now, there's wind. Well, I'm not a weatherman so I don't give a f---. I just don't want walls. I don't get if I get blown around all day."

When told that neither Edwards nor Hayden liked the change, Roberts Jr. said, "I don't care. Wind and a different circuit feel better then walls. That's all I care about. Other then that, maybe I'm a little bit non-nostalgic or whatever."

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
