WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY
Idaho City Qualifier, 1995 or ’96. I wasn’t doing the whole qualifier series any longer, but Idaho was always one of my favorite rides. This year I raced an XR600, mainly based on some feedback from Scott Summers and that my buddy Dick Burleson was working for Thumper Racing. The motor was stock, it had a modified stock muffler (still quiet- but better power) and suspension settings that DB came up with and George from ESP suspension fit into the Showa dampers. About the best mod I made was fitting an XR250 tank and saddle, which was way thinner and totally transformed the bikes handling. Thanks to Geoff Ballard for that bit of brilliance! I did well on this scoot, won my class and danced around the top twenty overall.
What sage did Scott Summers whisper in my ear? He said ride it like it’s an automatic, it won’t stall so just pound on the brakes and keep a good flowing throttle hand and don’t worry about massaging the clutch in the tight stuff. Scott said that the big flywheel and crank fought off a cough-stall-flame out and he was right!
