Some 50 years ago back in the early 1970s, Japanese motorcycles began to take the world by storm. It was in this era that Jarno Saarinen emerged on the road racing scene like a comet from Finland, his unique riding style permanently changing the sport and fans hailing him as one of the best to ever race a motorcycle. Eventually entering the history books as the first Finnish motorcycle racing World Champion, he was loved the world over as the “Flying Finn” and remains a legend to this day.
