That whole bunch were big time motorcyclists back in the day. Sounds like he lived a long and good life, still driving a tractor around in his 90's gotta luv it! RIP Mr. Boutwell

I rode the trials demonstration at the Yamaha Learn To Ride School with Greg in the late 70s in the parking lot of Security Square mall. They roped off an area and piled up haybales for us to ride over. Greg would pile them up 5 high like a pyramid and hit them so hard the whole thing would slide a few feet before the bike caught up and went over the top. I leaned a lot that weekend from him. Still have the nylon windbreaker they gave us. Doesn't even come close to fitting anymore.

Old Fart Films Incorporated.

I know I am cross-threading here, but I wanted to share this great 1971 motorcycle film I discovered on Youtube.

Snow packed into cut grooves and then colored light is aimed on to the ice. The camera doesn't do the saturation of color justice.
