Boy, does that bring back memories. Found in a box of photographs.

Rider’s meeting, Rick “The Tone” High Chaparral Ranch MX, East Jewett, NY Circa 1976


Here’s a shot of my buddy Tag Skinner, flying through the corner that preceded the “Screw-U” at South Cairo. Tag told me he would be airborne from the top and hit the bottom so hard it knocked the wind out of him, each lap. Tag sent me this recently, he owns his own landscaping business in Oakland, NJ now.

MX buddies on the line at High Chaparral in the rain. Boy, do I remember that red mud. Sorry for the dog bites in the corner of the pic. Circa 1976. L to R: Tim Good, Russ Garrison, John Donner
