I was at Bowling Green,Ky. in '77 or '78 when I first saw this triple Norton. Late in the evening when the track and air had cooled down he was trying to qualify. It was a two bike run and the triple got out of the hole pretty good. Then the front end started lifting and the guy just stayed in it!
He went by the 1/8 where I was and the front tire was a good three feet high.
I saw him again in 1985 at Bristol.Tn. and got to talk to him. I told him I'd been there at B.G. when he'd done the big wheelie. He got pretty excited and asked if I'd gotten a picture. I said I had'nt ,but the picture was burned into my brain.
He said that was the best the bike had ever run and his best story too.
