I like watching Jeremy Hand in the 250 east. He gets faster each race and gave Shimoda a good challenge for part of the race Tuesday

He was a beast. Incredible rider.

Added reply in a thread DeCoster Question for the Old Timers 3/3/2020 7:04 PM

I assume of all the hundreds of races DeCoster competed in, that has to be the one he regrets. Must have been an epic day for the fans otherwise. Jim Pomeroy became the first American to win a moto at the 500cc USGP Carlsbad, California. Pomeroy did

If you look at DeCoster’s riding and results in 1976 you see the top MX racer in the world at that moment. He won the 500cc World Championship, the Motocross and Trophee Des Nations, and the Trans AMA title. He was up against some very fast Americans

Added reply in a thread Who invented skimming through the whoops? 3/3/2020 4:54 AM

I seem to remember the two guys who got the most attention for perfecting the technique of skimming the whoops were Kieth Bowen and Ron Lechien. Both Yamaha riders at the time. 1983-1984 period.

Do you sellers usually put a “buy it now” value on Items you market on eBay, or leave them up for auction only? I’m an infrequent eBayer and I just put up some old Fox catalogs (1979, 1980) as auction only. I’m getting a bunch of requests to sell them ... more »

Also, maybe not doing everything possible to keep Jeremy McGrath happy at the close of the 1996 season.

Added reply in a thread Honda Dumb Idea Hall of Fame? 10/10/2019 4:25 PM

A minor blunder compared to some of the other stuff that’s been brought up, but the 1981 scoop number plates were weird and never caught on.
