Pretty damn cool.....nothing like the old 500 2-smokers.

You want a Pala vet track battle on 500s, Jeremy? Meet at the flag pole at 3.

Pretty awesome that he's still out there having a good time.

looks sweet, I would love to ride one..

Looks heavy. That snow shovel rear fender...

I love the look of the tub rear fender! And they are super fun to ride (I wish mine was as cherry as his)

Some trench digging at the gate

Note: He's rocking the shark fin on the helmet.

That thing's going to devour Mammoth. He still looks great on a bike. Cool to see.

I spent plenty of time on a 5 spot, and I would never start with my feet in front of the pegs.

No question he out nuts me.

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

Doesn't matter. Unless you're running a truck mud flap, you'll likely kill whatever is back there.

What an awesome looking bike! 500 sounds so sweet at idle!

Who was that on the #125 bike that kept trying to steal his camera time?

MC is such a stud, man! I was pretty much a fanboy when he was winning everything, and the way he's handled his wife's battle with cancer, how he seems to be such a cool Daddy with his kids...and how he still can bang bars with the younger guys is so cool. He's still a great role model for the guys coming up, and looks good on the 500 too.

I noticed that, too! That was cool hearing the deep "bbbbrrrruuummmmmmm" from McG's 500 and then the angry bumblebee "waaaaaaa...waaaaaaa!!!!!" from that 125. And c'mon, what 125 rider is NOT gonna try to keep up with a 500 on the same track? I know I would (have)!!!

I dunno about you guys, but I love seeing the retired guys out there riding dirt bikes and having FUN doing it. McG, Villopoto, Pingree, RC... good stuff. It's an inspiration to me that you can just ride and have fun.

MC will always be the man!

Dusty and windy brings back bland memories of many days at Argyll.

Screw batman and superman, MC was my hero back in the day. And the fact that he's one of a handful of former pro's that still embrace the sport and doesn't bitch and whine like bubbles makes him than much more of a legend. Not to mention no one will ever touch his 72 SX wins.

Awesome! I'm positive I rode mine at least 2% as fast as McGrath. And of course I had to reply to this thread based on my user name alone.

How do you get a year 2000 bike in the 1976-1989 vintage class?

|

6/27/2019 1:37 PM

Wardy would've had him covered wink

Maybe if I was riding with him, but geez that's sooo cool.

I️ believe that’s an ‘88.
