Added reply in a thread 125 / 250 National at Canyon Raceway April 8th, 1979 (Photos) 4/11/2019 2:28 PM

Awesome shots and great memories! I was there that day... Here's a shot a couple weeks later at Canyon. Not many Honda's in the 125 class in '79... But I was on one.

Well, I think this track with its short and single whoop section helps Mooscan and Webb. I expect MM to be TQ and KRoc to battle Eli for the win. But MM and Webb will be 3 and 4... And I think ZO gets another top 5.

I agree that Cairoli has been more consistent, but let’s not forget that Gajser has won a WC previously.

I think Gajser just found the juice to take on Cairoli for the rest of the season. It will be close, but Gajser might just pull this one out.

I really thought Alta had a shot to make it... I would say (and it matters NONE) that there is no reason I can see for the rear plates to bulge out as much as they do... Still was not at all a bad looking bike considering how different it really was. ... more »

This is excellent! I was already watching GP's, but now I have something specific to watch for... Give him a few weeks to acclimate and I see top 10's and even better in the near future.

Added reply in a thread 125 all star race back at every round 4/2/2019 7:23 AM

It shouldn't be an "all star" event... Make it part of the big show. Set up the 125 National Champs class! I'm even good with 15+2 to keep the schedule reasonable. JUST DO IT!

What's with all the single shock shit... This one is a proper Maico.

Added reply in a thread Maico Comeback? 4/1/2019 6:39 AM

ROFL... I'm an old school moto guy and love the old Maico's. The '81 Mega 2 490 is one of the all time great bikes. But it's a pipe dream to think anyone would put that kind of effort in. So, we'll chalk this one up to another April Fool's....

I was thoroughly expecting a sharp and fast Tomac for outdoors in 2019... Now I'm not so sure. He will certainly have to break this inconsistency funk. There will be plenty of fast guys on the line with him that are better starters than he is. Will he ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why did you quit Racing Motocross? 3/27/2019 11:07 AM

79 and 80 were big time years for Suzuki and Yamaha... And in '81 the 125 Suzuki was the only bike to own. It was just a good run for yellow...

Added reply in a thread Why did you quit Racing Motocross? 3/27/2019 10:32 AM

Definitely! After my third knee surgery, the recovery was brutal and I fell short of what I needed to do to race again. It was mentally excruciating to not be able to race. I bailed on everything motorcycle for around 10 years. I missed racing, period.

Both ACL's and an MCL... All before they had any idea how to fix them. Now? Double knee replacement needed in the next 2-3 years. Never had a $$ issue, bikes were coming from MFG's and shops. Had a helmet deal with Simpson. Pretty much just had to pay ... more »

I was a bit surprised with how he sounded in that interview... I do think Hangtown is going to show a re-motivated Eli.
