Have y'all seen these things yet? Look like motocross/street racers!! Martin, I think you might like these bikes, you to Jarel -- and anyone whose ever been on a MX'er or other off road bike.
Oh boy, Kelly have you brought back some memories, the sweet smell of "bean oil" from a 2 stroker MX bike and then the dirt and mud and rocks thrown in your face. Hey, I only holeshot once in my brief racin' career, but what a F****ing THRILL that was (I finished 2nd) though. Hey, speaking of old bikes, anybody remember the Hodaka (sp) Wombat? Little 100cc wonder?? Anyway, I know this is a ZR forum, but just have to "brag" about the fact that I attended Gary Bailey's MX school at Cocoa Beach Fl. and it was Howerton that taught me the holeshot technique. Man, to be in my 20's again. Oh well.....Tomkelly said:Tom- I was right there with you racing my RM125 in the mid 70's. As I recall, KTM's were called Pentons back then. They were pretty high-brow, and highly regarded even back then, and $$$$. And my buddy with a blue Ossa was the baddest on the planet. Now who remembers Ossa? How about the Can-Ams? They were really hot on the MX circuit there for a year or two. Oh the memories and that smell of Bel-Ray synthetic .
