Did someone say "OLD SCHOOL"

Recommended Posts

Well I guess Im as much Old School as you get.....Maybe because I have been

doing this stuff since 1958...(you think) Seen all the suspention changes,

rode most of the bikes both dirt and street.....saw the introduction of the

"Enduro Series" (now called Duel Sport) And all the MX equipt available now :eek: It can confuse the best of us when we go to the cycle Acc. stores

But as I look back on my racing career I still get all excited when I remember

getting ready for Friday night 1/2 mile racing at Ascot in Southern Cal.....

Man those were the days.... :applause:getting loaded up for the 5 hour trip to Ascot

1975

Don't feel bad... we all looked like dorks in 1975.

And in 2030, we'll be talking about how we looked like dorks in 2005 🙂

Is that "Junior" from Reno 911? (j/k) :applause: Truth is... I can identify with a lot of what you mentioned in the original post. My 1st bike was a Yamaha 80 "Mini Enduro". Just like Pop's DT1, but smaller. Those were the days.

Cool pic BC3 :applause:

Oh wow - talk about memories. I had the same bike! (Yami 80, not the dirt tracker) Bought it for 50 bucks.

Cool pic, by the way.

Ascot Park was THE race mecca, wasn't it. Great place. - the slick track go-kart arena was some of the most fun around too. :applause:

Mystic River. Sean Penn with dark shades.

Not a dork; a trendsetter.

The reason for the "Big Sprocket" You gear you bike for high gear and that

means a Big Sprocket on a 750 Triumph when your gearing for a 1/2 mile

track....top speed of 90 to 95 flat out.....

lol!

I dig the 'stash and the shades. Almost embarrassed to admit I had a pair just like those. ;-)

Bike looks really cool. If you don't still have it I'd be willing to bet you wish you did.
