    Yeah, James, I always loved the Victor. Chrome and Yellow tank. Too bad that they were for display only.

    A shop had one when I was racing MX. It stayed in the showroom and was constantly polished on. I had the opportunity to ride one of the big Triumph thumpers. Cannot remember which one it was but it sure produced the torque and had an excellent sound.

    A friend of mine has a lot of early Harleys and BMW bikes in his collection. War era sidecars with machine guns on the BMW and two old desert use Harleys with the leather rifle pouch on the front. Cool bikes. Did not perform worth anything but cool to see.

    Got to ride for a very short distance one of the road race bikes used by Daddy Duhammel (Yvonne or spelled something like that). This was back when he was competing for the WC in the 70's. Power of that bike blew me away. Now, the street bikes would blow it away. Amazing......

    Here is my current bike a 94 KX-250 ported piped modified suspension.... ABout the same set up as a top Motocross privateer would run that year. But perhaps the most important mod is my custom bend handle bars to compensate for my left arm being shorter than my right :)

    And yes that is mud on the bike we do get that here on a very rare occasion in Arizona :D

    And for my all time favorite it had to be any of the 1988 Kawasaki KX 125/250/500 model all awsome bikes.

    Here is a pic of myself at the office on my 88 500 :)

    Beast,

    I found just three pictures of myself on the Green Machine. Two were from a distance during a race and one is of me during a practice session. They are on 35mm print paper. I will try to get them up. Help me figure out how I need to do this. I also found some photos of my old TM250 Suzuki when I was privateering it. Found two of my old altered roadster drag race car and 5 or 6 of the McLaren F1 with me in the pictures. I will try to get them up with some assistance...............

    I just took my old pictures and scanned them into the computer and then scaled them down to where they were no larger than 640 X 640

    Some of the most fun, toss-able play toys,
    are the old 2 stroke street and road race bikes.
    One of my all-time favorites is the Yamaha RD400 Daytona.
