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.

Man he could send his kids to college just auctioning off the "junk" he has laying around.

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

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?

He got limitless stuff for free and this is what that does to a person. You do not want (or need) to respect it.

Shame really
