Rob raced the Monster Moto 80cc mini bike, and despite our best tuning efforts could not make it to the top of the hill without running the last few feet. Still a great time out there.
I just wrote this story for RideApart, but had a bunch of pictures I didn’t use and didn’t want to go to waste.
I went to the opening of the new Harley vs Indian exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles on Thursday March 2nd, 2017. Here’s a sampling of what I saw. Words and such will be on RideApart shortly.
The annual Hell on Wheels Halloween Hill Climb run what you brung event took place last weekend at Glen Helen. Competitors rode anything and everything around a short section of the vet track, then up the big hill. For those of you used to riding dirt bikes it is not a particularly hard hill to […]
Last weekend the Southern California Minibike Championship of the World took place at an undisclosed industrial park near the airport. Here are all the pictures I took, both with my SLR and cell phone. As usual, the entire story will be on RideApart.com
