DeCoster during practice at Unadilla in the 70's. Natural track.

I raced the 500 support class there in April 1977. The track suited me because I liked riding the big berms.

I was looking through the results of the Keithsburg 125 National in 1977. My recollection is that Magoo was absolutely flying but broke and finished out of the top 30. It was the most incredible ride I had ever seen in sand. I'll never forget it. I was ... more »

Added reply in a thread 1978 RM 400 any good? 1/22/2021 11:44 AM

I had one. Best open bike at the time. I upgraded to an aluminum swing arm, FOX shocks and Simmons forks. <------ That bike I'm on in the thumbnail is a 1978 RM400.

12 hours of run time and then retire it.

Don't remember the mounting bolts being an issue. I did check torque every moto.

Yup. I had a great support. Dad! After 6 National or regional pro races, we would retire the bike to a practice ride.

Haha....that was very "cool" in the 70's. Don't know where you could get them now. I'l try a lumberjack supply house.

I ran the RM250 in the AMA PRO Class in 79. Most of my races were on the 400. After years of screwing around with engine mods...we settled on one simple setup. RM250 with Simmons forks, Fox shocks, Petty front fender. Everything else stock. I'd replace ... more »

I was in St Petersburgh FL last week and was remembering the AMA Winter Series round that was held there in the winter of 77-78. Anyone know what happened to that track? Didn't drive to the site because I don't remember where is was.

Hey Gents, A great motocross icon always told us "don't follow". His name? That advise put me in a different rut when Mark Knapp missed a shift and gave me my first Expert win at Motomasters. Remember that pass like it was yesterday. Your thoughts?

A factory ride won't make a good pro a Supercross champ. Aldon Baker as trainer won't make a good pro a Supercross champ. A highly motivated and committed pro adding a factory bike and Aldon, is unstoppable.

I've been going to Unadilla since 72. In those days, the track was not groomed during race day. It was lightly groomed between events (2 per year) When you got to the track for practice, you were riding in a hay field. In recent years, the "modernization" ... more »

Agreed. That was a great piece on Dave. The Coombs family has done great things to advance MX in America.
