Ouch...sorry to hear about that.
Sounds good.:thumbsupOuch...sorry to hear about that.
44 is tough to start but its that stuff that keeps you young and going! If you ever see an orange manx out at Dove or driving through Jawbone flag me down or stop for a beer! We have been mixing it up a bit and heading out there.
They train all ages at Colton. My wife likes the small kids but she also does the adult class. It might be better if your wife learns from another woman.Love all the pics in this thread!
I've been meaning to take my kids to the Honda Learn to Ride school in Colton. Do they do a good job? How are they with 40 yr. Old women who can't get past a fear of falling down? I keep telling her that there are 3 more gears after second, why not use them? lol
wow does that bring back memories...me and Mercedes has many bar to bar battles in the late 80's racing the 125 int. class. My uncle would just shake his head and say "you got beat by a girl......" that chick could ride.....
yea I was pretty amazed when I saw her and my wife race in a all womens master race about 10 years ago at Glen Helen. Merc lapped the field a couple times. Did you know Tamyra Tracy. Tall blonde.wow does that bring back memories...me and Mercedes has many bar to bar battles in the late 80's racing the 125 int. class.

I was seriously star struck the first time I met RJ.... and I was 25 haha. When I was growing up RJ was the man and my room was plastered with Team honda and Bad Boy club postersA few from the last, but hopefully not last ever, Catalina GP. The pic of Pastrana's bike was just before it had a nuclear meltdown because his hillbilly mechanic put gas(not premix) in it. The last one is of my brother and just about everyone's boyhood mx idol.

When I was on 125s Mercedes was out at Canyon one weekend... She gave me a beat down There are a lot of fast chicks out there these days but she was a very rare bread in her time! :thumbsup
Great thread - boats are fun but nothing beats the rush that can be had on the dirt.
My first MX race was in 1966. Yamaha 125 with the "git kit". One of my lifetime buddies on the Penton.
Astrodome 1979 I think.
Love the old pics
This year at Diamond Don's Vintage National. 1972 380 CZ. Swapped the lead at least 5 times with the guy on the Maico. He won.
God I do love to ride.
We will have to just agree there is a rush for both. For me - I can park the boats longer than I can park the bikes before that urge hits me and I just have to do it.As much as I love bikes I have to disagree on this.
