WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY
With the Argentina ISDE looming, here’s a shot of Randy Hawkins and I loading my Suzuki DR350 into our rental car following its demise in the final terrain test at the 1990 Swedish ISDE on day 5. Total bummer for me as the event was incredibly tough and I had overcome a steed that was barely running at the end of day one. Taking the carburetor apart in Parc Ferme to clean the jets, barely getting it into impound before houring out and then failing to get it started on day 2. It took me 15 minutes to take it apart, realize that I had put the float bowl on wrong which closed off the floats, and finally got going. The trail was brutal, rains made it even uglier and until I threw the chain in the final test on day 5… I had persevered. Once I got my bike home I had it dual sported and road it off-road and in the canyons for several years.
