The late 1980s were a golden era of Grand Prix motorcycle racing as the big Japanese factories fought tooth-and-nail for World Championship glory. Suzuki, Honda and Yamaha battled for technological dominance In the high-powered world of 500cc two-stroke racers - and to ride these beasts they employed the very best riders money could find.
But even riders of the calibre of Gardner, Scgwantz, Lawson and Mamola struggled to tame the raw power and brutal handling of bikes built without constraints.
The riders might have been paid handsomely for their efforts but often the rewards didn't make up for the hammering their bodies took. With over 150bhp on tap and little in the way of electronic rider aids these fearsome 500cc beasts were only ever one flick of the wrist away from a spectacular high-side.
Some, like Rainey, paid a heavy price for their claim to Grand Prix fame.
With loads of great action shots from the archives and revealing, frank interviews with many of the top riders of the era, this incredible documentary looks at the men who had to ride the "Unrideables".
