BLAST FROM THE PAST: Randy Hawkins

Randy Hawkins is a seven-time AMA National Enduro Champion, but he’s also an 18-time rider at the ISDE (International Six Days Enduro). That feat puts him in the top 10 in the world in ISDE appearances. Randy was deeply involved with the development of the Suzuki RMX, winning his first Enduro title in 1988 on a RM 250 motocrosser. He loved that machine, it was light, flickable and made good power for the woods. In 1989 and 1990 he won the title on a much modified RMX250. This photo, from 1994 shows Randy’s RMX fit with a Fox fork, an RM cylinder, Pro Circuit porting . Hawkins earned 73 AMA National race wins.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

1980 was a good year for the Wolfster. I won the District 37 Open A enduro title riding for Kolbe Cycles. My Can Am 400 was a tractor and towards the end of the year I fit up a 38mm KYB fork and front wheel I borrowed from our Yamaha YZ250 test bike. It was stellar. At the time I loved Scott boots- unfortunately I also had to have four knee surgeries during the next four years. Don’t know if it was the lack flex through the ankle, but I kept twisting my knee[s], ultimately having them blow up and was forced to get them drained after almost every enduro. But like Dick Burleson told me, if you’re gonna be tough you better be stupid.
