Good interview with Wayne on how it all came about here:

Wow. Just wow. Rainey was always one of my favorites, broke my heart way back when he went down and became paralyzed. Since then I've admired him even more for the ways he's adapted and lived his life.

Could you imagine how cool it had to be to be there and witness the whole thing?

Watched a video about that last night on YouTube. Pretty cool to get him back riding, bet he misses it.

IIRC he got into kart racing and other stuff. He didn't let the paralysis slow him down much. I appreciate how mindful he was about the process and his reactions to it.

I'd LOVE to see video of him, Lawson and Roberts dicing it out one day.

When I attended the MotoGP at Laguna Seca in 2005 I got to see him racing his kart. Definitely NOT the same thing you get to play with at Malibu Gran Prix, either!

Oh, and thanks again Jaime. Another example why BW kick ass. Id've missed it otherwise.

If you make it to E. TN, holler my friend.

I've met and spoken to Wayne on a couple of occasions at MotoAmerica races. A few years ago he gave my friend and me the "Head's Up" regarding the race in Pittsburgh, before even the press got word.

You meet the nicest people on motorcycles.
