WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

I’m KTM 360 mounted and racing the Laughlin Hare Scrambles-one of my favorite events ever! My buddy Dick Wilk built this machine and this is the day before the race and we’re testing. The bike was a missile and I could barely hang on. I made Dick de-tune it and then things went well for the race. I’m pretty sure that this was a1998.
