There was a brilliant open day at GT motorcycles in Plymouth on Saturday to mark the opening of the newly extended showroom and Legends Cafe. The guests were James Hillier and Paul Smart.

I was lucky enough to sit and have a coffee with James and talk about his H2R IOM lap in June. Fact is he's almost more famous for that than he is for being one of only five riders to lap the TT course at over 132mph.

Paul Smart may be known for winning the 1972 Imola 200 race on the Ducati 750, a win which made both his name and that of Ducati. What is lesser known is that prior to the call from Ducati he was racing a Kawasaki H2 triple in the USA.

Both guests fascinating in their own way. Old school hero meets young gun. Picture is of them relaxing behind the scenes.
