    autographed by MJ huh?…. I wonder if angry 13 year old thugs and bangers will be rioting at RIM in Vegas to get the first MJ racebike so they can rock it while wearing their new pumped up Jordan kicks.

    Sorry, whatever, who cares.

    Your post doesn’t make any sense. If you wanted everyone to know what a hardcore biker you are cause you hate race bikes and are slightly racist. Point made.

    By thugs and bangers are you implying black people? Or are you referring to people who dress funny and live a different lifestyle? The latter sounds a lot like bikers to this middle aged, middle class, educated white man that watched a lot of Bulls basketball in the 90’s. I’m not only a Bulls fan, but I like bikes of all kinds and I like racing of all kinds. No where near the funds to go to Vegas and build a collection but if I did I would be very interested in the GSX.

    Michael Jordan was a classy player and is a first class individual. Hope it goes well. Watched him play baseball in Birmingham once and his athletic ability was simply amazing.

    Watch the news. No doubt Evobuilder is referring to the riots created by Nike’s release of Jordan’s latest basketball/fashion shoe. The ridiculousness of hype and what society deems “valuable”.

    Nice bikes though. . . .

    Topps is making these bikes available as they own the licensing rights to Michael Jordans signature. If nothing else they are a piece of AMA racing history as he is the highest profile owner in the paddock and the bike designs are always a unique presence on the track. If I had the spare change it would make a great base to a dining room table……..just saying…..hahaha….and if you got the spare change make sure you get the Yates bike as Aaron was a class act who just swung a leg over the bike and rode his ass off.

    Kroeter was exactly right… I was referring t the riots over the shoes. Jesus… lighten up people!

    Hey Cyril, Once again you prove what a great influence you have to this industry. Great comments everyone! I watched the Bulls in their prime being from Chicago, Jordan, Pippin, Rodman were just amazing to watch. I didn’t know Jordan was into bikes. Nice!

    Don’t think Jordan is into bikes, just the money from the use of his name. Same as the shoes, think he really wears them?

    Sport/Super bikes….jet skis with 2 wheels……..yawn!

    @mark M,.jordan is very much into bikes ,he does track days all the time and even test rode the ducati Motogp bike a few years ago .He has had many bikes built for him and is at the race track all the time .Its not just a signature he is as much a bike fanatic as any of us are .

    Jordan suzuki was always a competitive bike especially when yates joined the crew ,the bikes have a lot of value to a collector .

    One of them would make a killer track day tool for sure .

    @barney …if you think sportbikes make you yawn you obviously have never ridden one .

    Glad to see someone new honestly investing as much into the industry as MJ has. People make impacts in different ways. Some do it over a life long, steadily growing commitment that eventually reveals a lasting and incredible impact on the industry. Others see the light later and bring their resources to bear in an honest effort to join and impact the industry later in life. Either way, positive impact. How many other non-moto brands are willing to invest in our industry as much as MJ has? How many life long mechanics, team managers, riders, moto-retailers, etc has MJ positively impacted with his efforts? A lot more than me to date, and I’m guessing a lot more than most reading this blog.

    Nicely done MJ, we welcome you to industry and thank you for your contributions. Stay on the gas my man!
