Ripped some motos last Saturday with all the local cats at 3 trees. Was a good day, great weather, great riding, good times. Some bar dragging action, some random dude hitting an invisible kicker and crashing in front of me. All in all, a killer day of moto!
Here is some footage from out at a secret motocross training facility in Austin Texas. It has an amateur Arenacross layout, Professional Supercross track I just built for them, and a killer outdoor track. Chris Morris is doing some laps doing the initial break in of the Supercross track. Place is killer! Quick lil video, no edit, royalty free music.
I was at Junk Man’s shop and he had someone send in some kit suspension and forgot to send bushings! So I saved the day and turned some down for him on my lathe so they would fit the Showa A kit suspension.
A good friend of mine Will Topete for years now sent me this photo from 06 Supercross. It brings back so many memories. I would stay at Ken Johnson’s house for years while racing the west coast series. There was a time at the end of the two stroke era where I was still riding a cr250 2 stroke! Man it sounds so good! I actually have this video from practicing on it out there. Sounds so sick! Then shortly after MC and I were both talking about the bike at track walk at one of the Anaheim rounds. Coincidentally we both showed up on 450s the next weekend and were laughing about it. The bike was fun to ride but was a disadvantage against the four strokes. Good times and memories. Thanks for the pic Will!
This past weekend I raced up at the Freestone. It was the last round of the Texas Winter Series. At the last minute I had my suspension done for outdoors. Come to find out sunday morning, it felt a bit firm… I called up the Junk Man and he said they didnt have the springs they needed for my suspension. So I just had to run it. Well…. I was a pussy, shit was so stiff I couldnt hang on more than 3-4 laps! Definitely looking forward to getting it corrected! Keith Demele over at TxMotocross took some great photos of the event. Check em out there is a few of me in there!
Riding some supercross with friends like old times, feels good! Tracks pretty haggard today but it’s still good practice in shitty whoops! Phenie is out for the first time breaking in his bike. Mason, Justin, Brad good group of jabronis for sure!
Riding supercross you wouldn’t think would eat up tires so bad. But I sure am missing some knobbys! Feels like ice skating on the rear wheel!
Went out today to test my bike a bit before the Monster Energy Supercross series starts this weekend. The track was built by Vernon Mckiddie, he will be racing the East Coast Lites class. Thanks to the Drennan family for letting him build a track for us local pros to be able to ride in Houston! Well be getting some more photos and video of the track soon. It was a good day of riding with a bunch of guys. Vernon Mckiddie, Kelly Smith, Kevin Johnson, and a couple other local guys too. Looking forward to riding tomorrow! It was nice to get some riding time in with the wet weather. We’ll post some more stuff up soon!
These are some OG graphics from back in the day when darkness wrenched for me! Didnt realize they were stuck on a can in my garage! Prolly from the 07 supercross and outdoor nationals remember chuck!
People are lining up early for Ponca City’s Grand National Championship! Its still a week out and there packing in! It brings back memories of when I won my first title here! Seemed like yesterday! Soon I’ll be racing the plus 30 class there, with my kids!
