    What Does Your Race Number Mean?

    I run 19r for Dirt Track and 319 for WERA roadracing. 19 because my cousin, Keith Mashburn, was Nat'l #19 while riding for the Yamaha factory team in the early 70's. 19R - because I needed a letter after my # for dirttrack and R is for my last name, Rudy. 319 was originally my Speedway #. I needed a 3-digit # and 119 & 219 were already taken. So, 319 it was. Now that I'm racing WERA West, I again needed a 3-digit # and was lucky to get 319 again.

    When did you start riding and on what?

    My first bike was a Taco mini bike. (Funny thing is, I'm actually wearing a TACO T-shirt as I'm typing this..) I tried racing it in 1970 in a peewee flattrack race at Trojan raceway, in South Gate, CA against a bunch of Honda Z-50's. I was 5. The results were predictable, but when the race was over I told my dad if I had a faster bike I could beat those kids. My cousin was a factory racer for Yamaha at the time (Keith Mashburn) and we bought his (thrashed) JT 60 mini enduro pit bike from him. Malcolm Smith built a downpipe for it and did some headwork on it and we made it into a really cool little flattracker. It was really competitive, that is until Honda came out with the XR 75. It seems like I've been chasing Honda's ever since. That's why today, at the age of 41, I have 2 Honda flattrackers (a 74 Champion XL 350, and a Ron Wood Framed CRF 250R -the only one of it's kind.) and an 85 XL350. But, to stay true to my early Yamaha roots, I also have a C&J TT500.

    Flywheel weight

    Has anyone tried adding flywheel weight to their 250F's? Results?
  6. Thinking of installing a Bed Buddy tie down bar in my Ram. What's your experiences been with this product?

    racegas in stock engine

    We've found that running Chevron Supreme pump gas gives us only 0.5hp difference on the dyno than U4....I sh1t you not. I didn't believe it either, but the #'s don't lie. A lot cheaper too.

    crf 150 for racing

    I've raced mine in the Mini-moto Max class in SuperMoto as well as in the Open Am class in flat-track (1/6th mile Short-track-Santa Maria fairgrounds). The bike's just awesome. I took 2nd in the Open Am B main at Sta Maria against a bunch of 450's. Engine-wise, you will need to pump some $$$'s into it to make it fast, but I've always liked fast 4-strokes over 2-strokes anyway.

    CRF150 pipe on XR-100?

    Go with the DMZ pipe. It's the best one for XR's, hands down.

    Thank You

    Submarine Races? Naahh, you can't 'back-in' a submarine. Scott, I appreciate the kind words. I'm still waiting until I am mobile enough to make it down to 2nd Street. I can already hear Darren at the A.I. saying, "So, you took the training wheels off again, didn't you?" I liked your line about stuffing the guy for 1st place. I guess I'll owe you a royalty-pitcher if I use it. Wow, I never thought I'd be able to count myself in the same company as Max Biaggi. Some bright side. Thanks again and Merry Christmas to all of you in the SuperMoto community. Brad Rudy

    Thank You

    Just wanted to thank all of you out at Grange last Sunday, who helped load up our van after I was injured. For the record, I had spiral fractures of the tib/fib on my right leg. I just caught my boot at the wrong angle going through the first right hander before the dirt. There's a line in 'On Any Sunday' that says "Motorcycle racers are good people." You guys certainly proved it. It's times like this that you know who your friends are. Also a word of thanks for all who have called to check on my condition. Brad Rudy

    What was your first bike

    My first mini bike was a Taco, I was 5. Tried racing it against a bunch of Z-50's and told my dad if I had a faster bike, I could beat those kids. My cousin was a factory racer for Yamaha at the time, so we bought his (thrashed)mini-enduro pit bike from him. We built it into a mini-flat-tracker. Malcolm Smith built the down-pipe and did the head work for it.
