Say hey to him from the budman!
Yo Budman,
I relayed the message, and Pete remembered you from the track. But it took him a little while because back in the day, I was the Budman. And we ain't talk'in beer neither

You wouldn't believe it, Pete's been living down near Fresno (If you want to all that living?) for about 10 years now, and when he came up Thursday, we go to this Mexican Joint in Santa Rosa, and run into Mark McDaniel of all people! What are the odds of that? Mark had his little boy-child with him, and they looked so much alike it was scary. Even for me! (Can you hear the banjos?)
Pete still rips, he rides a '01 K12RS and carries corner speed like on his old TZ!
I'll go and type some drivel in the Cruising/Touring section...

I miss, Frank The Maz. I took his trophies up Sears, he came down and stole mine due south.

That rag editor #20 hung me up and look at that gap I had to make up. I yelled at him then to get his ass moving. Honey Badger coming thru!

I remember that guy. Think he's still mad at me when I beat him at Baylands brackets one night. Him on his fire-breathing HD, me on the good old consistent KZ650....

Every NMP's special device Dave..

Young folks.. knee pucks were ductape.. or leather.. because nobody made them..!
Toe sliders, belly pans, back protectors, etc.. all good stuff that was not around a few decades ago.. times change.

For motorcycle racers and safety that changed... has been very good..!

Exactly, about 40 layers of duct-tape made it just right. About 1" thick, & thick-enough so one race wouldn't ruin the "puck." You could just tape over the previous race's "wear."

Actually, you know who was really cool, was Grandma Francis! How did I forget her, bring'in cold cuts, bread, gummi bears, cookies, and drinks for all the racers. (Even Joe Brett Williams!)

I used to hang out with all of them, hadn't thought about Grandma in a long time....East Bay Dave, I think I know you from the AFM as well....hmmmm.

See If Petey can figure out whop I am from this pic....I don't have anything from the 80s's on this computer. This is an AFM ad from 91 or 92 I think...

YEah probably. Sorry haven't been here in awhile, the pc blew it's guts. On kids pc now!

I knew a lot of folks back then, & that picture jarred me feeble memory. Got it on the tip of me tongue but can't spit it out.

Just take a look thru my gallery online here & you might remember. I was always the guy who was "too big to race."

Granny Franny aka Grandma Frances oast away last year

Hi Andy & Other Bikers

Peter Wensloff was the greatest racer ever. He was always nice, approachable, and just a sweet polite stand up guy.

His Grandmother was well known at the tracks all over the USA. SHe traveled with Peter and sponsered him. She always made lunches for everyone. And if someone was hotel-less or homeless, she gave them a place to sleep.

She past away last year at 82 years of age. She was still walking a mile a day and loving Peter as his #1 fan.
