I think the Hurricane deserves a mention here. He could have been 500 champ in 77 except for a broken throttle cable.. He won a 500 title - Trans AMA champ in 78. He could ride the big bike as good as any.

I can't remember if it was Notsuka or not, but it wasn't Tomita. Team Japan that year was Notsuka, Narita and Yamamoto.

Great news. Scumbags like that should be exterminated as soon as they appear in public.

Watanabe won a moto at a Trans AMA event back in 1976. IIRC he tied Roger for the overall win, but lost out on time. Same thig happened with Masuda at the USGP at Mid Ohio in 1977. Tied Rahier for the overall win, but took second on time.

Hangtown 1979. Second 250 moto, Larry Wosick was running 2nd or 3rd when a drunken spectator ran out in front of him and got hit. I think Larry was knocked out and the drunk got a broken leg or something.

Sure. It must be the same lame brain that allows boats on the infield of a supercross race.

I remember that now. There used to be this like gate like thing you had to go through to get back there. Here's what it looked like back in 2000. You can see how much higher the drop off jump used to be back then too.

I was trying to trap some squirrels but caught this river otter. There's several otters in the river that is near my house, but the strange thing is that the river is about 3/4 of a mile away with no creeks, streams or waterways in between.

There used to be a few in Norcal. One in Oakland and the one in Concord that we used to go to, went there several times. There was another location in the bay area, but I can't remember where it was.
