I drove by a high school last week and I counted 4 trucks that had bikes loaded in the parking lot. Dam, when I was going to school you could count the number of riders on one hand and we had 1200 kids at our school. This was mid 80's granted. Ocscottie was the fastest kid by far...

I am currently a senior at my highschool and there is only about 5 people total that actually participate in motocross. There are some more but i dont consider them motocross riders because they barely know what kind of bike they freakin ride.

HAR! Craiger, remember Brent Rapport? He was such a spoiled cocky little rich snob in Jr High at RedWood, he came up to me and said, "i heard you think you are fast and can ride and motorcycle? bet i could smoke you" i asked what kind of bike he had, it was like a 78 Yamaha GT80 LMAO!!

I just laughed

I remember this one kid tried to tell me his 2007 crf250 was fuel injected and produced over 50hp. I just told him thats sweet cause i didnt want to explain to him that his bike was carburated and only produced around 35hp. The funny thing was he showed up to my local track one day while me and my friend were riding and he had a crf250x trailbike and not a crf250. I must say though that kid was insanely fast on a motocross track.(sarcasm alert)

1988 - 1991 Mt. Carmel High, Rancho Penesquitos, CA.

I remember a few of us rode and raced, mainly myself, my buddy Chris, and Art Higgins moved to our school I think his senior year. He used to come to school in his van with his bike loaded inside the van. Chris and I used to ditch class and go riding in the canyons nearby.

We all raced at Barano Oaks. Art and Mike Craig got into a jumping contest over two table-tops one Saturday during practice. Of course, Mike won that contest with some sic nose touches to the front fender!!

Maybe there were a total of 10 of us that rode or raced back then...

North County Inland had all kinds of riding area's back then!!

There was 4 of us who raced in high school. Me my brother, Mike Young and Jamie Wells. We would all ride together during the week and race all the CMC races. MIke and Jamie both got paralyzed at Glen Helen. Sucks....

5/5/2012 7:23 PM

One, me. 400 kids in my entire highschool in NW Oklahoma.

|

5/5/2012 7:24 PM

In my highschool it was only my brother and I. And now at my college i only know of one other.

There were quite a few people with utility quads and small trail bikes that they rode a few times a year though.

5/5/2012 7:29 PM

In my high school of probably 1500 there were kids that had dirt bikes but I did know of any one else who actually raced besides myself.

I've been out of high school 30+ years. A shitload of us rode moto back then though. However, only ONE can lay claim to riding THROUGH the high school.
Totally pre-arranged, of course. The biggest rebel to ever hit THAT school owned a 79 RM250. Rode up the steps to a door held open by a friend, hauled ass down the straight hallway and out the other end, through, amazingly enough, ANOTHER door held open by a buddy. Middle of the afternoon classes, all classroom doors closed by policy. Out of the building and gone before any teacher saw who it was. Don't think HE wasn't the man for a while! Paled in comparison to some of the other shit he did over the years. Still alive today, too. Amazingly enough.

In middle school it seemed like half my school rode dirt bikes or three wheelers in Boca Raton Florida, early 80's. If your parents could not get you to the races someone elses parents would. Our local track, Lockhart stadium had the regulars weekly, Ferry, Dean Baker, The Gardeners... I went to a big high school just two hours away and not one kid had a bike until one day in 10th grade i saw these two new brothers in the lunch line wearing kawasaki jersey's. I walked up and asked if they rode or were just wearing those shirts. They said they both had 87 kx125's which was the same bike i had. We met at a spot i had been riding and one of the brothers and I have been best friends and riding/ racing ever since. He will drop everything to ride even more than me but has not followed pro racing at all in years which stinks because there is no one to really talk moto to except here. lol

I don't have to be as smart as you hope to be some day anymore.

Of course the most classic high school moment for us, which I think you also witnessed Scottie, was shaggy poaching our senior year group photo on his 85 xl350. straight out of a movie scene it was so good. You see our buddy got the boot like a week before graduation so retaliated with some nice donuts in front of the whole graduating class all while giving our principal the finger. This lead into an epic police chase up into the nearby hills. One of the funniest things i saw in high school. I still hang and ride with shaggy.
Cheers

I used to race Lockhart on saturday nights on my YZ80 in 1986-87. They used to do a single gate drop of 80 A & B combined (I was B ) and sadly I got lapped a few times by Ferry. Todd Gardner was always a good bet to win the money class.

Good times MADDOG & OC!

Shaggy ditched that bike at my parents house and walked home. Cops saw him and questioned him, he said he was doing yard work for my mom. He ran home and called my mom just as the cops pulled up the driveway. My mom covered for him then they went to Jacks house. Jack said the cops had nothing nice to say about my mom. They new what was going on but couldn't cuff anyone.

I must have done thousands of laps on Trevors moped track. My two speed Puch tore that place up.

I had some good times night racing at Baylands after school. I wish all of us would have had the opportunity to race together.

4 of us.
One guy tried to make it to the "Big time". Scott Davis races a few 125 SX's the golden state nationals and Ponca City 84-86.
He and Danny Bonham became "local pros"
I was just an AM squid
