Sad news, lots of nagging injuries over the years and now Lyme disease. There's a long list of New England riders who were a real tough bunch and "took the pain". JimmyD is on it. Hope he makes it back.

Definitely 1980 Carlsbad USGP and the whole Moates thing. At least the first half, the second half of the story is probably the worst in MX history.

Back in 1990 my KX 250 started running strangely. It would start and run fine util about 10-15 minutes went by and then it would load, sputter, break up and eventually you'd have to kill it. Wait to cool down and try again, same silly routine all over ... more »

Kind of the opposite but I saw The Presidents Analyst many years ago and thought it was the funniest movie ever. But I've never met anyone else who has seen it.
