So mate and I head up to the tracks, he is passenger. He asks can he wear the gloves and goggles?......of course mate.  We are just putting around having a laugh -mud- and I decide to cross a bridge that takes you more into the bush trails rather than moto tracks.

We ride along this single track, its slippery due to heaps of rain but its hot being Aus early summer. Still just putting along - 3rd gear on a 80cc - there is biggest snake I have ever seen (ever) lying across the track. MOFO'n King Brown, had to be 8" round through the middle and 7' long at least!
I was on top of it before I realized so my first thought was " I'll rev the bike and spin the rear on it" no, I was in 3rd gear with 2 dudes on it. The bike bogged & went brrr... I ride over the snake, get off the bike and look around, it just keeps going into the grass as if nothing happened, slow.

But mate is already back down the track 30yrds, sprinting, goggles and gloves all!
Ive doubled over the bike laughing so hard at the sight, I don't think H Bolt would have caught him.

When I asked him after why he took off like that he said "man, those things can move fast!'

But he's not doing a Hannah.

I raced Jeremy McGrath in a BMX race one time. It was about the time when he was winning everything in MX. He was not good. He didn't make the main, but everyone still loved him and mobbed him for his autograph. Cool dude.

One winter my eldest brother bought a hang glider cheap. He really wanted to try it out. So he put on a pair of skis, rigged up the hang glider. Middle brother gets 40' of rope ties it to the snowmobile. Eldest ties the rope on and they head off. When the sled got to 30mph or so bro lifts the nose of the hang glider. At that speed it snapped him up into the air, he hits the end of the rope. Well, it lifted the sled's track off the snow, sled comes to a dead stop, hang glider dives, track hits snow and still revved takes off again. Hang glider snaps up into the air Jptdknpa Jptdknpa
Next they tried it from the back of a pickup but all that happened was eldest bro got flipped out. At 30 mph. True story. Don't know how they're still alive 1dunno1

A friend of mine was hunting in the deep woods and saw bigfoot. I asked him what it looked like. He stared me straight in the eyes and said, fuzzy man real fuzzy. The end.

There was once a person that had a chip on his shoulder. It was a big and spiney crystal.

It was so heavy it weighed him down.

It kept growing and one of the spines penetrated his brain and left him permanently disabled.

Whoop! Yellow Yammi, that Hannah could ride a machine. So I'll tell a story. Love Yamies, always. My Hero was the first to go over there < Gall was his name, All Hail Lord Gall. it was he that put Aus into the professional motocross/supercross scene. Which was starting up big time over in the US

We were first to scramble in mud and shit. (Hey, settle down Yanks & Poms we could argue all day.) So since we inveted it, it wasnt going to be long until we dominate it. That didn't turn out to be. From the mid 70's the Euros gave the Yanks heaps, particularly the Belgians (which will come back to haunt the US) From the late 70's until the early/mid 90's Mother America ruled the world in motocross.

I did a quick rundown of all the magazine's over that time. Aus magz, Motocross Action, The odd Euro mag if I could get my hands on one, generally Pomo. Ended being something like $3000. Fully Obsessed.

Only one regret, and its not mine. David Bailey would have been the best that ever rode, meaning titles. His perfection was rare and unfortunately limited.

My sig is Jonny O.
Apologies

At 3PM the road that went down the hill past the zoo was crowded because it was used by all the hospital workers and college students heading home. Everyone had to make that left hand turn a few miles up the road to get onto the interstate.

It was stop and go for a good two miles. First the left lane would move, then the right would move etc.

I was in the left lane and it started to move. Suddenly this old beat up pick truck in the right lane just cut into my lane when it started moving, and completely ignored me. I had to slam on my breaks to avoid the collision. He definitely would have rammed my car, except for my cat like reflexes. I got a look at the geeky pencil necked black Sanford and son looking guy driving that truck, and I could see he was completely wasted. As he started to move into my lane, I memorized his plates because I could see he was drunk and/or stoned.

But..before he could even get his truck into the space in my lane (that he had forced me to concede), suddenly the car that was in the space in front of me hit his breaks. At the same moment, suddenly the right-hand lane of traffic started moving, so Lamont grabbed his wheel and abandoned my lane to get back into the lane he had been in. As he did so, he clipped the tail light of the car in front me. Because he was seriously fucked up.

Lamont took off down the right lane, and at the first opportunity, the guy in front of me was in pursuit. Lamont suddenly cut across traffic into the gas station that was on the left hand corner of the street that led to the highway. They guy with the clipped car assumed Lamont was pulling over to give his info, but Lamont floored it out the far side of the gas station, avoiding the turn light at the corner by doing so, and he took off for the highway. The guy with the damaged car got into the gas station, but Lamont had timed it so when he pulled out, traffic prevented the guy from pursuing him any further.

As I inched up in traffic to the corner, I could see the guy checking out the damage to his tail light. He was driving a nice Mercedes Sedan, and I realized he was no doubt a wealthy college professor, or Doctor. I thought about Lamont being a poor black guy that probably had no insurance, and about what a beat up piece of junk he driving.

A) I turned into the Gas Station to give the doctor Lamont's plates.
B) I thought this Doctor was insured and rich, he could afford to fix his mercedes and I didn't want to jam a poor down and out Sanford and son brother up in the system, and hang around waiting to be a witness.
