I like the racers going by the store front... that's a big, looming, window behind them!

Was Ulrich writing for the now defunct "Cycle Guide", I seem to remember some articles about him racing 125's.

Imagine the life stories over the AFM's 50 years..racers know this stuff hangs deep..some of our best memories and a source of pride,,

The injuries ....the comebacks....the almost crashed..the "Big one"...the great head to head battles... the AFM staff...the volunteers..

Look at the people on the street in Sacremento ever change by watching the old school boys rip up the streets...so sweeeeeeettttt!
If any of you guys are at the Ruenion and don't say hello..your chumps!!!
You won't be able to miss me...

The peeps that passed......that is tough..I saw a few ..five in five years....my first race had a young man die on the track.. It was a real hello to racing... If ever God said...."you sure you want to do this?" ...That was it..
I remember all of them and with the loss of two more fine gentleman this year..we pay a price...to pursue this passion..that is clear.

I did..as many others over the decades chose to step up to life and challenge it in our way...in our time..over and over..prices paid..bones broken..broken machines...people who are hurt by your commitment to the insane passion..stilllllwe race.
The best stuff..in the best sport..real people..real motorcycles...real fun..


AFM / 50 YEARS = Real Bay Area and beyond life..real cool.

sorry I am such a bloody whimp...this just burns in the bones... as something really special and to be cherished as long as I live.
