He has been my inspiration ever since.
And all this time I thought I was your inspiration!

That would've been Burt. He lived in Lees Camp and started riding out there about 1947, if I recall correctly. He was pretty good, bailed out one of my bud's once with his 3-rail trailer on his K-car.

Sadly, he passed away last year. Saw him last spring in Lees Camp store, we BS'd as usual.
