Last week we lost Wes Cooley. Cooley was a two time AMA Superbike Champion back in the heydays of American Superbike racing. Wes got his start in AMA Pro Racing riding the Yoshimura Kawasaki Kz1000's. He switched to riding Suzuki's when Yoshimura became the factory Suzuki team in AMA Superbike racing. Cooley went back to racing for the factory Kawasaki team in 1983. Godspeed Wes...........
