I wanted to make it out to the Marty Tripes Races at Elsinore but I couldn't make it. I did make it out there on my Kx450F to ride the main/vet on saturday and I saw the vintage track that Marc built, looked fun for the pre 80's bikes, maybe a bit too

A friend of mine just called me, he was doing a roofing estimate for a guys garage, when they went inside the garage they found a 1973 Yamaha LT2 100 which is basically an MX 100 (correct me if I'm wrong)!! He said the guy is wiling to sell it, so he's ... more »

Who remembers Wardy using a two way radio with his mechanic back in '88 at the San Diego SX, I believe? His mechanic (Roy Turner?) would tell him where RJ was behind him and Wardy would move over every time. So RJ had to fake out Wardy, he purposely ... more »

Oh, I wasn't offended, actually it was kind of funny, there were a lot of local guys that had really clean bikes and the coolest gear!! If you didn't know, you'd think they were pro's, but when the gate dropped the were usually running dead last!!

I think it would be worth a phone call to Rick Hovat, he always has bitchin' stories and a wealth of knowledge. Maybe even a phone call to Vance at Q&E, hell how about Jerry Curl?!! I'd like to think a 74-75 YZ125 engine would fit, then I could just ... more »

I think everyone over jumped it at one point, they could have stretched out the landing another 10 feet and it would have been perfect, even for the lites guys. IMO.

Who would be the person to get ahold of as far as making this MX100 competitive in the Works 100cc Class? I don't have a bunch of money to throw at it, but I'd like to know some tricks, basically how I can modify it and keep within the rules for that ... more »
