Just like the title says, what is your favorite Moto memory from 2019? It could be from any of the pro action that we thought on track, or a personal story.

Qualifying again for Lorettas just after my dad passed away. I had a hard time even wanting to go to the regional but in hindsight I’m glad that I followed my heart and not my head.

Being an aussie...

Being able to be at Reeds retirement announcement at Melbourne Aus x.
I was there for his Pro Debut as a young kid and to be there for his last was pretty cool.
especially the atmosphere within the stadium. thousands of people with a tear in there eye and the roar through out the stadium was purely amazing.

May be unpopular opinion, but I loved the triple crowns.

Learning to enjoy riding again. It took a long time to do but I have been having more fun than ever lately.

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

It was a great year watching my 5 year old progress on a KX65, and running with a leash connected to the PW50 just before my daughter's 3rd birthday.

My favorite memory was NOT when AC lost the 250 west at vegas but when the tv crew came up to him and his group, he sucked it up, did an interview and was honest as always. Pretty amazing to be able to do that in that situation. And sometimes out of some bad, comes some good so we know how that turned out.

Show 400.

It beats me attempting my first National, camping in a tent with my fiancé in 30 degree weather for a race, it was just insane.

Ironman!
The 250's were still up for grabs!
The 450's had some great close racing!
A full gate of 125s, that was decided on the last lap!
And it really hurts me to say this.....the 4 wheeler National. I really didn't think you could jump an easy chair with wheels that far!
(Guycool I saw you taking pictures of them (that's really not our world,,,,).
My first time there, a great track, easy to get into and out of, great viewing almost everywhere.
West Lafayette was a great place to stay, great restaurants, good places to party and play.
4 1/2 stars out of 5

Better to remain silent and thought a fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

My son sacking up and jumping the table and step down at 7yrs old on his PW 80 in our backyard track without me screaming at him to do it like a crazed mini dad.

Out here in the fields, I fight for my meals. I get my back into my living. I don't need to fight, to prove I'm right. I don't need to be forgiven.

After nearly two years of planning, finally being able to make a road trip from Seattle to So Cal. Spent three nights camping and riding in Gorman with my cousin. Considering I left LA in 98 and haven't ridden there since, it was a nice change up from the woods riding up here in Washington Photo

The crowd blew up and it was crazy.

Too many to recall. But two that stand out are.

1). In 2005 three MCM2 team VET members from www.thezone.com flew out from back east. We hung out in town Friday night, then headed to THE MUDDER at A1. It was a blizzard on the way down from Big Bear to A1. Rained all day. It was a blast and that race is now a stand out round in history.

2). In the early 90's I was riding a private SX track off El Toro Rd owned by the Baldwin Brothers (I think?). I was there with my local pro brother in law Joe Tuttobene. I was out on the track alone singling everything. Bike was lit, my kit was sano. Up rolls the Dr and Bradshaw. As Damon was unloading he looks out at me, then looks at my brother in law and asks " Who's the Spode?" Hence my screen name ever since.

Damon was my idol back then. I could barely speak when I saw him. I felt like Kramer from Seinfeld. As I came in to rest my bro went out. He was doing this section that was a right hand bowl turn then a hump then a gout then a large table. My bro kept flat landing on the end of the the table and bouncing down. Damon walks over to me and says, "Tell your friend to not let off over the hump, just keep it pinned over that hump and he will clear the table to the downside. Damon was right. I was amazed at how he could see the slightest issue.

Later when they were done burning laps they began to launch off the inside of that same bowl turn and clear a fence and then a HUGE culvert on the outside of the entire track. You know the kind with the huge boulders lining both sides? Blew me away.

Hearing Stew retired. I thought for sure this was the year he lines up. The years of unknown was unsettling but the confirmation was soothing to the core
