Pic from the late 80's , early 90's. Jerry , what's up ?
Jerry's alive and well. I see him most Sundays when the gang meets for breakfast out in the countryside. Did you race AHRMA? If you did, I probably tech'ed your bike a time or two.

I'd like to share my latest expose' here on the lowly victor thread.
Although it shows my other plated machines you see a compilation of various footage including the
TR5MX and my SS.
And like the lyrics state, my SS is the favorite bike to ride...and so......



Hang in there with it as there's a long intro/build-up...

Yep, I raced 250 GP, 350 GP S.O.S. Formula 3, 500 Premier , Formula 750 and B.O.T.T. at different times all #146 and all Ducatis.
The bike in this pic is my 450 Duc that ran in the Premier 500 class.

I hit just about everything in the late '80s and all of the '90s East of the Mississippi and also Steamboat Springs. Usually worked and traveled with John Goodpaster. You had a real job to do with the 450 against all of the big time Premier riders. After John left, things changed and I kind of didn't get along with the new people.

John is a great guy, I'm sure we've met as well.
Running the 450 in premier was like pushing a rope uphill. Usually the best i could hope for was first Ducati, it was always a goal to not be lapped by Roper, a goal rarely acheived. The best thing about AHRMA was the people, like an extended family. Sometimes it was an extended disfuncional family , but family all the same.
