After Kevin Schwantz had proven himself in AMA Superbike racing, he moved full-time to the 500 Grand Prix class with Suzuki in 1988.
By his retirement in "995 he had earned 25 GP wins, 21 lap records, 29 pole positions, and won the 1993 World Championship.
Such was his stature in the sport that the FIM, the sanctioning body, retired his number 34-the first time any rider had been honored this way.
Schwantz continues to work with Suzuki moto as an advisor to the Yoshimura Suzuki team and through the Kevin Schwantz Suzuki School.
