The pros have talent and a sack of iron. They all deserve respect.

Great job. I never knew these had so much more travel than the 1978 model. The Suzukis were the bike to have back then. And you're right about them being tall for the times. Nobody had tank stickers at the races.

My first ride on a real bike on a real track. In 1977. Madera Lakes on a friends 1977 RM125B. Scared and thrilled.

1. The skies are BLACK because of piston engines. 2. The fire-winds coming out of my cats raisin will lead to the undoing of the human race. 3. It is very unfortunate. 4. Oh darn, the sun came up. 5. I don't have a cat.

There is no question you are the dirt bike guru. So much knowledge. I enjoyed the Suzuki episode. But they are all outstanding. Good Job Tony.

This is no shit. Nothing like watching the pros swapping and roosting and each other WFO up those hills. Great track.

In no particular order; 1. Not producing sport ATVs. 2. Not producing the XR75. 3. Not producing the CT70.

Reply to Anyone ever had a Calcaneous (heel) fracture? 7/19/2019 6:50 PM

Broke both in 1997. Left one very badly. Bad atrophy of my legs. Had to learn how to walk and step and stand. Still hurts.

Reply to When 250R Actually Meant Honda 250R 6/15/2019 12:35 PM

I remember when the 1986 ATC250R was new and they were common at Pismo. Few quads. My brother did work on his engine til it was like a top fuel dragster. He routinely beat Banshees up comp. hill. All foopers now. Funnest times I ever had riding. But ... more »
