THE WEEKLY FEED: DICK BURLESON ‘IN THE DESERT’, WILD HARD ENDURO VIDEOS

BLAST FROM THE PAST: DICK BURLESON ‘THE DESERT FOX’

Back in the day the National Enduro series traveled the entire country, and was dominated by Dick Burleson for eight straight years. He won the 500-mile 2-day Greenhorn enduro in 1977, a timekeeper with a myriad of speed changes using a 24-mph VDO speedo and a wrist watch. DB was always a threat, even in the California desert and used his relentless ability to dig deep anytime the conditions got ugly to persevere. The ability to adapt and conquer different terrains, plus having the inherent gray matter to time keep  with precision were some of the tools DB used to control his destiny.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

This was sent to me from my buddy Robb Mesecher. He found it on FB and it was the final moto at a Washington ISDE Qualifier in 1994. I’m Husaberg mounted and Phil Douglas is next to me on his RMX. We battled that entire year in the 40 class at the series. I remember that he hauled biscuits and gave me grief , though thankfully I did end up winning the series in our class. That was back in the days of 3 and 4 day qualifiers and in venues with incredible terrain and long hard days.
