KK or KR, whatever one calls him, sheer brilliance on two wheels. I saw him race once and that was at Mosport in the mid 70s before he went to Europe. This was the Gary Nixon/Gene Romero/Steve Baker/Yvonne Duhamel/etc era as far as the North American scene was concerned. They were all there, and seeing them go at it on their 750s sure was something to see ! KK saved my butt once, huge. I read an interview article back in the 70s, and KK was talking about "boxes on a shelf on the wall". He ran scenarios, developed responses, and "put them in a box". When said situation came up, he simply "took the box off the shelf" in his brain. I won't bore you with full details, but I realized I needed such a thing for a certain hypothetical situation at the end of T1 at the now closed Race City. Well, it happened in a practice session, so I went for "my box", and did exactly what was in it, and avoided what could too easily have been mega disaster. Seriously, to this day I thank KK for that gem of wisdom and strategy.
