Whoever mentioned the Light Rail out of Tukwila, thank you. I'm visiting my daughter and decided to give it a try. It was a very nice facility. Easy tickets (only $6 all day ticket). Free parking. The rail cars were clean. No issues with anybody. Was ... more »

That was the best video I have seen on Tomac. Real insight to him and his Dad. Great job. Thanks Bell.

Thanks for the compliments. I have a passion for Greeves. It took me a couple years to find all the original parts. When I show it I thought it would be cool to show the period correct riding gear with it. I have a mannequin for it. When I joined the ... more »

How about this old 1971 Toyota Hi-Lux? My brother in law and me back in 87. I bought it for $150. Put a clutch in it and drove it a couple years.

Doesn’t ring a bell….haha. At 65 my memory is not so good for these old details. If he raced in NC between 72 - 75, I probably raced with him at some point.

Yes the RMZ is too heavy and doesn’t have electric start but I had a 2011 450 and it still is my favorite bike I have owned.

There were a few tracks on the Eastern side back then. Most didn’t last that long. I remember there was a real cool track close to the Marine base. It was sandy. Only got to race it once in like 73 or 74. Here is a bad pic of me at one of those tracks.

You look up any old photos or movies from the early to mid 60s and it’s all Dave Bickers. He won the 60 & 61 European 250 Championship before it was called the World Championship. After 62 he wanted to stay closer to home otherwise I think he could

Good to hear GA has a variety of tracks. I’m going next month to check the area around Macon and Warner. I just retired from Boeing and GA looks to be the most friendly to retirees. I’m retired Air Force also so I want to be close to a military base. ... more »

I restored a 61 Greeves 250 MCS Dave Bickers replica. About 5 or 6 years ago I took it to the annual Steve McQueen motorcycle and car show. I guy comes up and asked me “You know why I like this bike” I said no why, he said “because my dad was Dave Bickers”.
