||Racing as a Novice on
my '69 Pursang and catching up to the Amateur/Experts.
Those guys didn't like to be passed by a Novice! Also
racing against Alan Thomas of the Checkers. We were the
fastest Novices in 1970.

motorcycles. My neighbor, Middy Boggio (also an Invader),
and I have the Midsonian motorcycle museum in Riverside.
We have a very nice collection of vintage dirt bikes plus
numerous Triumphs and BSAs.
still ride motorcycles?
||I still love to ride
in the desert with my old Invader buddies. I also ride
dual sport on an XR440 with a web cam and bigger head
pipe. It's as fast as my friend's stock early WR400.
||My best friends are
guys I raced with almost 30 years ago. Considering a lot
of people don't have many long time friends, I consider myself
to be very lucky.
