From Delů
This is a 1972, 500cc Triumph I made for the sand dunes. That's Tecate Mexico in the background.
I started racing moto cross on my 1968 Greevs when I was 43 years old. Never won!
Gary Baily, Steve McQueen and Thorshan Hallman were the top racers. I was in a desert race where 500 motorcycles went off together. I came in 39th, He-he, great fun! I had to give up racing when I was 63 because I went blind in my left eye. I couldn't see the holes!!!
Now I'm into ATV - 4 wheelers. I have a couple of 1999 450 Formans ES. We head for the dunes every chance we get.
Being 75 I still have to slow down and let them catch up!!!
