Yes- was true- Jason did a parade lap on that bike at the Farleigh 500 GP- think was 1979- think it may have actually been water cooled and tricked out, before water cooling started to happen stock. Cannot quite remember but it certainly was trick. Also ... more »

Not got a picture of the car/bike- but do recall when Bonzo and Jason arrived at National championship final in I think 1978-80- cannot quite remember the year. Yes bike was in the back/ trunk of a brown Rolls Royce- wheels pokin out of the trunk! Was ... more »

Thats great G-Man to hear things are hopefully on the up... blimey, 'when it rains it pours...', to coin a phrase. I always remembered your story of your great cat Smokey and how she used to like sleeping right by you- my new Smokey does it also (named

Really sorry to hear of your Dear Dads passing Gman. I lost my Dad like 16 years a go, reckon I think of him most days since, if not everyday, as a few have already posted similar messages. I remember you posting a while back about your dear cat Smokey ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bob Moore's 909 FMF Honda 1/8/2021 12:00 PM

Great memories of Bob on the all white Chesterfield 250cc Yams- him, Schmit and Puzar - all team mates. Those bikes and riders all flew fast back in the 90's era. Super times. That was such a competitive time- were loads of riders fast enough to win- ... more »

Added reply in a thread Best 125 Rdiers of All Time 1/7/2021 6:35 AM

Yes- you are correct- I thought Puzar won on the TM but he came 2nd and 3rd on it -I think was 97 and 98. As you say Harry Everts was also pretty good- surprised he hasn't been mentioned more, won title 3 times on 125. Strange how good the Belgians were ... more »

Added reply in a thread Best 125 Rdiers of All Time 1/6/2021 4:57 PM

Yes- forgot about Chiodi- that little guy won lots. Also Puzar- he stepped up and down from 125cc / 250cc and won the 125 again in the later years on the TM if my memory serves me correctly.

I would have to agree with Barnett being one of the best 125cc riders. So beautiful also those watercooled 125 Zooks. I would also like to add the late and brilliant Bruce Bunch to the topic- the story goes young Bruce actually overtook 'The Bomber' ... more »

Added reply in a thread 1978 vs 1979 yz 100 1/4/2021 6:15 PM

We also had a new 1979 100F back in the day, was a great bike. We ran it for 2 years then got the YZ100H- 1981. The 1981 H handled better but in someways I liked the 79~F- it was really fast. First few races I won on those bikes- as said think the YZ100E ... more »

Added reply in a thread Beta MXGP Press Release 1/4/2021 2:20 PM

Yes- my old and foggy memory- remember there was a guy/ youngster who was really fast and raced National level here- think it may have been 1980 and had a Beta 125- recall he lapped the whole field- it was an exotic bike... wasn't many of them here. ... more »

Your bikes are stunning! Is the RM100 a 1980 model? I recall a few YZ100's here from 1979-81 having DG mods/ gold heads but there were less RM's with the DG parts. I had a YZ100F 1979 and also later a 1981 YZ100H, I did sort of okay on them and once

That FMF125 is lovely! and the RM80 also just posted looks so interesting! In the UK we had DG modded bikes but I do not recall the FMF's- were they like a company like DG that provided trick performance parts? Would like to know more- that 125 is lovely
