Remembering the Cord!

Rode it in either 1974 or 75. Was riding a DT 360 Yamaha, I believe. Probably wasn't near as tough as it is now. Remember lining up 4 at a time. Think it was 300 miles with about 300 riders over 2 days. Remember a couple of Americans on Triumph 650s with straight pipes. Lovely sound. Seeme like we rode forever to get to the end but we finished. These are the good old days. Enjoy them.

Rode the Cord back in the early 80's, on a Can-Am 370, twice DNF'd, second time with a broken knee cap, ouch.

Came back in '84 with a Can-Am 250 ASE, finished 4th in Junior class, took home a log (trophy). The Cord is truly the stuff of legends, this is the way enduros should be run, tough and challenging. The history and the toughness of this event has lasted the test of time. Anyone who has ever finished deserves a beer in my books.

Congrats Rob!

That's quite the accomplishment - to finish is a great debut.

A new career?
