Saw him in the Astrodome SX in Houston, amazing rider, smooth and FAST.

I never quite decided wherther I liked him or not.

.
Jeff Stanton didn't.

I remember that season and thinking there must be some tension in the Honda pits.

Didn't realize how much till I watched Stantons MX file, those two really didn't like each other.

I'm ready for some sparkling conversation.

I remember Johnson and Lechien having some angst back in the day.

RJ was my favorite back then.

I did like Leichein,maybe that's why the hate started for RJ.
Or maybe the whole "Bad Boy" thing?
Or later the Christian thing?

Bomber it was defiantly the mustache.

Now there's a rational reason to hate.

Stars of the 80s? How about David Bailey? He had the talent and motivation. Too bad he got so badly injured.

One race Lechien was brake checking Johnson to the point that he popped him after the checkers.

I think he got into a little trouble for that too.

The only rider I can remember not liking would have to have been Bayle, and that was after watching him sandbag behind Bradshaw during his famous choke during (i believe) the 92 Supercross season.

He was going so slow a blind man could see he was trying to fuck his teammate out of the championship.

That was fucked up.

I saw an interview with Bayle within the last 18 months, I'm sure it was RacerX.

He basically referred to Stanton as "that guy" and I was shocked when he said he'd like to go see him and kind of catch up/get to know the guy he never knew. He basically made it sound like he never got to know him at all and while he obviously knew who/what Stanton was his mindset might not have been what everyone assumes it was.

The 80's were definitely the big bore 2 stroke's peak of prominence in many ways.
