I just turned 67 in October 2023 and have been around motorcycles all my life. Started riding with my dad then got my first bike a 1953 Triumph Tiger Cub in 1968. It was a piece of crap but it ran and taught me a lot. My dad had a 1958 BSA Goldstar 500. We stripped it down, put a knobby and big sprocket on it and I went racing in 1972. Won my first trophy on it (That's my profile photo) I still have that trophy. My first real MX bike was a 1973 Suzuki TM 250. I'll never forget the day in 1974 that my dad took me to the local bike shop and showed me the Suzuki. He asked me if this was what I wanted? I said are you kidding me? We walked out of there that day with it. I have been wishing and dreaming of being a professional motocrosser ever since. Never made it to the professional ranks but I did race from 1973 - 76 and made some money. Joined the Air Force in 1976 at 19, got married and had two kids within two years. Kinda ended the racing ambition but I never stopped riding my my dirt bikes. I love nothing more than riding at the MX track to this day. I currently have a 2012 KTM SXF350, 1978 Honda XR75, 1973 CZ 250 and a 1961 Greeves MCS 250 I restored about 12 years ago.
