THE MAG…CIRCA 1976
Back in 1976 the Supercross buzz was unique and fresh, in a sport that was still very young. Putting a shot of Gaylon Mosier, Jimmy Ellis, Kent Howerton and half of Tony D was pure adrenalin for the dirt bike junkie. Would we see a cover like this today? Ah…no.
My buddy Billy Berroth sent me this a while back, It’s from 1988, and was our main test zone located out in the high desert. This was a normal gathering mid-week to test and ride. It was Ron Fry’s (RIP) abode and I spy a few friends here. Kevin Hines, Mark Zoller, Doug Johns and Bill Berroth along with my friend and fellow editor Karel ‘The Stormer’ Kramer.
WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY
This is from the 1989 Idaho City ISDE Qualifier. It was a rough year for me, I had broken my leg badly the year earlier and had major hardware in my left tibia, which made it hard to ride which mated to a major pain factor. I had tried to qualify for the ISDE and just didn’t have the necessary tools to get the job done. This bike was one of my favorites, a big-bore kitted KX250. Team Green’s Mark Johnson helped me set it up and get me to the qualifiers. It made great bottom power and had the best suspension I had ridden with to that point.
