I remember the Willow Creek TTs. Great times. Seems like Honda of Arcata was real involved there. -- I joined the army in '72 so I missed so much Humboldt racing. I remember Richter, Moffatt and Frisbee as the speed. -- I had a full Maico (440) ride ... more »

I also figured that was Olsen just by the style. Wow I remember those names, too. After 35 years! -- Now I remember that Villopoto shop! I worked at Miller's a short while. I bought my RM from O&E. I remember Honda of Arcata and seem to remember ... more »

I remember these names. I worked at Miller's. Here are pics from 1976/77 at Redwood Acres. I had not ridden since March '75. Broke out the '74 Elsinore to race Richter (he is 47 & I am 66). Then bought a new RM125 from O&E. Do you recognize any

I really liked that Garberville track with the uphills and loop around the tree, etc. I was known for my downhill passes! -- I'm sure I was there when you beat Burgess, wonder if we met. -- The name Villopoto really rings a bell, I'm wondering if I knew ... more »

I was thinking of Garberville in summer '77. But yes I remember we Humboldtians had to go your neck of the woods to find the competition as Humboldt is not very populated. I ended up going east to ride the AMA nationals and never really rode ... more »

I have several photos of that day, including some of Mann and his bike. I do remember Bugsy motivating that day, that thumper echoing. Do you remember any of the riders names that day? I remember Lance Burgess on the 250 Ossa. I have pics ... more »

Oh, and there was the guy named "Picture Man." He has a matted 8x10 of me that I never picked up. In Color, too. Where can I find him? ;-) (He did my avatar ... Lafayette 1974)

In 1974-1975 I rode out of Colorado Springs at Aztec, Castle Rock and Lafayette. I remember Arlo E and Gary G. There was another open class hot shoe on a Bultaco 360 who was a captain in the army at Fort Carson. Does anyone remember who he is? There ... more »

I am not sure where he moved. He was at MMI at one time and raced MX regularly. Some years later he became quite involved with motorcycle drag racing too. I'm not sure where that took him but he remained in Florida.

OK. I remember Clear Lake, too. Garberville was smaller but known enough to have Dick Mann stop in, which is where I met him. I've ridden with Richter several times, I always considered him a hometome boy (though he was Fortuna and I was further ... more »

Were the Boss and CMC ever at Redwood Acres, Garberville or Ruth Lake in the '70s? I left California in '72 with a return in '75-77 and then '79. Trying to remember where my CMC days were. My earliest memories are "Lets" in Humboldt in 1969-71. Richter ... more »

I just discovered VMX while searching for this 1987 Steel City GP and yours was one of only three hits. I'll add some "Where Were You's" in a moment. First some notes on this event: Yeah, I remember you there, cheering for what's his name! ;-) This was ... more »
