Does anyone have pictures of the “graveyard” at Ricky’s place? Never heard about it until the other day and a quick google search came up with nothing.

There is a vid on youtube I have seen somewhere, Ricky gives a quick tour of an old barn with stuff laying around, some old factory stuff.

There was a photo set of the goat farm a few years ago by TWMX (i think) and there were a few pictures. There was a works engine from one of his rmzs just sitting on a shelf covered in dust plugged with paper towels. I'll see what I cant find


EDIT: Justin beat me to it it was MXA

That is some cool stuff there. Would love to see more like that! But particularly I heard something along the lines of a couple works KHI bikes being run over with a dozer and half buried?

One of the mags had some pics of his graveyard when he was still on Kaw 2 strokes. Dozens of crusty motors and thrashed frames laying around in the weeds.

They used to run them over with a dozer then bury them. There are a couple of bike pits on the farm for sure.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

These are the pictures I heard about. Was it a clause at termination of contract everything gets destroyed or what? Would be a heck of a story I’m sure.

He’s found so much stuff in the shops and they allow him to keep what he wants. He’s running a full PC system that was specially built for Savatgy on his 16 Kawi lol. Crazy

Don't feel so bad sir. I don't think anything Ricky practiced on/with was any good after he was done with it.

The original photos and article were in TWMX summer of 2000 or early 2001. I will see if I can find it. I was injured at the time, so I kept looking at the pictures of chopped up frames with works engines and pipes thrown in the grass to rust

There was a big front end loader with a frame or 2 and misc parts in it also. Would have been MXracer wouldn't it?
