Motorcyclists from every era have one bike that for them is the best bike of all time.
I asked the late great Czech Speedway Champion Franta Juhan what his favorite bike was and and he told me.
“Sonny” (his nickname for me) I have raced many great bikes including the Gilera Four in Monza, The Vellocette KTT which I rode to a new lap record in Switzerland and rode in the Isle of Man TT. I had a DKW 240 Speedway bike and a 1000cc Covenry Eagle and raced Jawa in the Six Days Trial. I have ridden Jawa, Vincent, Gilera, Moto Guzzi and MV Agusta but my favorite was the Jawa 350 Speedway Bike.” Franta was a big imposing gentleman and is eyes got a far away look when he hung his arm over my shoulder and talked of these bikes.
I was what you could call a child of the sixties and my own personal best was the incredible Honda RC166.
