Mert Lawwill


Mert Lawwill, the American Motorcyclist Association Grand National Champion of 1969, was one of the top professionals on the AMA national circuit during 1960s and 1970s.Lawwill was born in Boise, Idaho, on September 25, 1940. His parents were not enthusiastic about motorcycling. Mert's older brother broke the ice and was the first in the family to ride. It didn't take long for Mert to catch the motorcycling bug and he too started riding, much to his parents' chagrin.
