Thats a great offer, but as I mentioned in the previous post, I am pretty tough to get a setup with my height/weight. Cory and I talked a lot about Cone Valves, but in the end decided to go this direction.

The track was Murphy's MX in Austin area. Well prepped that gets choppy in the afternoons. Intermediate dirt, with a little bit hard base. Small to medium size jumps. The inserts are just under $1000, with springs. It was time for a refresh on seals/bushings ... more »

My buddies and I used to go camp out at El Mirage every now and then. Loved the bonfire wars...lighting pucker bushes on fire with race gas! Went to Gorman a few times with my Pops.

Someone around here probably has better memory than me about when Escape Country (known as Racing World when it closed) closed down. There was a kid on my street who's family was involved in the ownership of it (He was a Robinson, of Robinson Ranch). ... more »

I remember that day as well. Tough time in SoCal for Moto. But, how did you go to Escape Country to ride? They closed down a few years before Saddleback.

It was open longer than 4 days. I don't remember how long (not real long), but I went there more than 4 times.

Spoaks is currently my favorite track in the Central Texas area. Layout is fun, they dig it deep, and it's all good.

Technical Touch KYB and MX-Tech Lucky are dual spring conversions. There is no more valving left over from the AER fork. Technical Touch and MX-Tech both set these up to the rider's spec when they are ordered. They will come with the correct springs, ... more »

MId-70's until about 1983. IN SoCal you could race 5 days/nights a week during summer. Multiple divisions of every beginner/novice class. Full 40-rider gates of INT and Pro classes. It slowed down drastically after that era...
