My dad always said "If you aren't going to beat so and so we will just load our shit and go home". 35 years later I don't remember once loading our shit and going home lol.

I remember one of you, once quoted your dad after a difficult Photorace- and it’s still brilliant - “ Did you get lost out there?”

Me standing at the gate warming up the YZ65, “Where the f()ck is he!? The gate is about to drop!” At least he listens to the moto counts and shows up in time to strap his helmet on and puts in 100% effort on the track.

All the usual....STOP LOOKING BACK! Stand up, inside/outside, STOP LOOKING BACK, squeeze the bike, elbows up, STOP LOOKONG BACK! See a pattern here?

I’m guilty of yelling way too much while he’s rolling a corner right when he can here me. I told mom to get me a pit board and I’ll promise I won’t yell anymore but she’s terrified of what I’ll write on it 😆

Any little mistake his response is a very dramatic, hands in the air, "Unbelievable!". And he knows I hate it but says it anyway.

Laughed at that last part! Don't even know how many times I've brought a bike home and stashed it in the garage for months and said "mom doesn't need to know about this one yet, bud."

My favorite was always something along the lines of "We're selling the bikes" after a not so good weekend.

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

I'm so thankful the only things I heard from my dad were, "go out and have fun" "be safe and keep it on two wheels" "as long as you try 100% and come back safe it doesn't matter where you finish." "be smart and look for the good lines" "get a good start and just match the guys in front of you. On the gas when they get on the gas, brake when they brake. Eventually you'll figure out how to brake later and get on the gas sooner than them"

Running the starts for a while I've heard some horrible stuff from parents to their 4-8yo's.
"we didn't spend all the money and time to come here for you not to win"
"take that kid out if you have to"
"if you hurt him, oh well"
"fuck this, if you're not going to race hard we are going home"

My old man always used to tell me something along the lines of good luck, have fun. It was all fun.

The funniest however was after he passed, a friend of mine’s family basically adopted me at the track and the father would come to the line with me. Said something to the effect one moto of “you see this guy to your left? Fuck him, you’re faster than him. Same on the right. You’ll beat them both. And if you can’t, take em out!” All overheard by said riders and parents and I couldn’t stop laughing. And then I got the holeshot and fell apart 3 laps in, per usual. Good times!

Me (to my daughter):
"You rode really well today."
"Good job."
"I am so impressed by your tenacity. You didn't have to finish that race after the gnarly crash and you still did it."
"You just beat four boys. Kick ass!"


Real MX dads:
"Go faster or I'm going to sell your bike."
"Shut up before I give you something to cry about."
"There's only one winner. The rest are losers."

I could never get the hang of being a true mini dad. I guess I love my kids too much or something.
