Remember Don Emler's Penda? there's a guy in this photo that built one that was a lot cleaner (my opinion). hmm, who is it??

What has happened to James Stewart. 2012 maybe? although the way Villopoto was riding I'm not sure Stewart would have had anything for him. Dungey did great. especially with the little time he had on the KTM. with 2 1/2 mos. more of testing he's going to be the man to beat in 2012. be nice to see a european bike with a #1 plate in America.

he's humble and the fan's adhere to that. so do I. I had actually lost a little interest in keeping up with the outdoors when he announced he was done after maryland. windham is back and I'm re-energized. good luck #14.

pro fab was a good shop. very reasonable. I had my 74 red frame cz 400 done there. they moved the shocks foward on the top and bottom for like 95 dollars. even shot some red paint on their work.
