We still ride every weekend at least 4-5 hrs. Racing has slowed a bit since Covid. Caught an MX race here and there, no desert races though. Built him a new flat tracker in July, haven’t had a chance to run it yet. Maybe Oct the FT schedule will open back up.
That pic is from 2-3 years ago, now has bigger bike and is faster. I swear he’s going to kill me trying to catch him in the desert. I have over 500cc’s on him (xr600), but in the tight stuff, it doesn’t matter. When I feel like giving him a run, I bring out my big bore 250 (280cc) and make him eat rocks. Builds character...

Fun days, I remember my son beating me. That day always comes.

I will never forget the first time I “ate rocks” , I was riding my xl100 Honda when Randy Scott passed me on his brand new Bultaco 250 w/ a new Yokohama 901 digger back tire ( big lugs spaced apart perfect for throwing big rocks),
Spayed me with rocks, one the size of my fist hit me square in the chest while wearing a T-shirt, whole chest was “purple” for about a week! Lol, good Times!
