It makes you really appreciate this forum... Not only because of threads/pics like this one, but because of the community. Those guys Adventured as a group. They pushed each others abilities, photographed the heroic moments (and the defeats too), repaired and modified each others bikes, benched raced when not riding and shared a bond of experiences that I'm sure exists even today.
Kind of like the group here at AdvRider.
Thanks for these pics... and thanks again to everyone here for continuing the tradition!
