Congrats Warren. I started racing motocross in the 1972 with the first Honda Elsinore. Raced the Florida Winter Nationals for years. Then moved to California in 1985 and raced at Carlsbad Raceway for 10 years. I've seen your awesome photos in MXA Magazine for all those years.
There are so many great memories for me. Watching Tripes beat the Euros at Carlsbad. Taking private lessons with Marty Smith. Experiencing all the pros tearing it up (WFO) at Daytona for many years. Your stories must be extensive.
I was never much of a rider, oxman. Even took an extended sabbatical from motorcycles. My grandson started riding in 2003. I bought myself a bike, new digital camera gear and re-established relations with media contacts. Voila! I still get a thrill out of the sounds ... and especially that Castor Bean Odor.
No longer riding but I still run into Lackey, LaPorte, Marty Tripes and many others at Vintage events and an occasional National or Supercross. Marty, Jim Gibson, Guy Cooper, Trampas Parker, Donnie Hansen, many others were at a race in Jefferson, TX in April. Some of my pictures from that will be in Racer X Magazine.
