Bob at Unadilla!

My old racing friend, Bob, raced his brother’s Rickman Zundapp at Unadilla with AHRMA … Bob got me into roadracing when I used to ride my 1985 Harley-Davidson FXSB to watch him race his 1985 Ninja 600 at places like Pocono and Loudon … good times!

Here’s what Bob had to say about it: “Attendance was huge … about five hundred plus racers from coast to coast with some totally awesome restored old machinery. They also had a four mile cross country race held on Friday with Saturday and Sunday motocross racing. “WOW” what a track, I’ve been wanting to race there for many years and finally got to do it! It’s not your usual “jumpy” youth inspired MX facility rather more like road racing in the dirt … fast wide sweeping turns with big up and down hill sections all on a perfectly rich moist dirt surface … an absolute total blast was had by all, an excellent place for old bikes! I can’t wait until next years rewind …”
