From 1984, Lawson was on podium consistently and took the 1984 World Championship under his belt.That was first win out of four. Lawson after winning the two more championships in 1986 and 1988 moved from Yamaha to Rothmans Honda giving jolt to the motorcycle world.
He won one title with Honda in 1989 this becoming first rider to win consistently for two different manufacturers.
Off the track he had very good relationship with his rivals and teammates.One such incident he was talking with Kenny Roberts during an interview with Cyclenews was How Kenny Roberts gave him a lesson and funny story when he could not speed on his cold Dunlop slick tires.
Thats when Kenny said why dont you follow me and i will show how to do it.While Kenny disappeared where there was bridge and gravel trap.
Lawson retired in early 1990’s to become as one of the greatest to go down in the history of Motorcycle Grand Prix World.
