Yep, Clay is still one of the fast guys, for sure. I think his lowest national number was 38, but then he figured out that he could make a lot more money racing off-road. He even raced Baja for the first time a few weeks ago. He's in the orange shirt.

Bonnie never fired a shot at anyone.

Bonnie and Clyde had a hideout/cabin very close to where I grew up and we use to play in it when were kids. The gang shot two Highway patrol officers just a few miles from where I live now.

Great videos! I'd like to see more 125 GP action from that period.

Yes, that's me and Clay at a TVRC race. I've been trying to talk him into making a run for LL's in the +50, because I think he would easily take that title.

If you are on a $200 budget, get the Gaerne GX-1. You'll thank me in 3 years, when they are still going strong.

If you are on a tight budget, the Gaerne GX-1 is the best boot at the $200 price point. They are comfortable, wear like iron and made in Italy.

I have a road bike, but it just collects dust because of inattentive drivers talking and texting on their cell phones. I had to ask myself if I enjoyed road riding enough to get killed doing it. That answer was no.

A before and after dyno chart would be nice.

I had a set of those red/white/blue Hallman pants back in 1980. I think I paid $90, which in today's money is $255. I guess the Finns paid their workers more than a bowl of rice a day to make pants.

Glad to see that you were able to save that tank, Joe. The previous owner told me he almost cut it up to fit a project bike he is working on!

Do not attempt to rebuild a crank with the tin covers. Use a new OEM crank. You can get one from Honda East Toledo for $244, w/ free shipping.

Our club has a 94-03 class. It's very popular.

The 97/98 KX250 was the best bike during that period.
Added reply in a thread Suspension fluid viscosity 11/28/2013 10:07 AM
I have found that if you are heavy, and use a heavier shock spring, the shock typically becomes a pogo stick with insufficient rebound damping. Heavier shock oil is a cheap alternative to a re-valve in this situation. I've used 7wt Maxima shock fluid ... more »

Me too. I get more blisters with softer compound grips.

A buddy of mine picked up a mint condition unrestored 79 last year for $3,500. I would think that your bike would probably be worth at least that much.
Added reply in a thread 1979 Honda cr 250 Elsinore 11/25/2013 3:11 PM
I remember seeing new '79 CR250's at the Honda shop in '81. They were blowing them out of the warehouses at $650.
