They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If that’s true, below are over ten thousand words proving how two of the top motocross riders to ever throw a leg over a bike were loyal to Kawasaki throughout much of their careers. Team Green has led a lot of riders to stardom, but these two may be the program’s best. They have combined for twenty amateur national motocross championships from Loretta Lynn’s (RC-9, JS-11), all aboard green machines. In honor of their legacy with Kawasaki, and proof that Kawasaki has helped mold two of the best motocross racers off all time, below is a pictorial of Ricky Carmichael and James Stewart aboard Kawasaki motorcycles at different stages of their amazing motocross careers.
