Adelanto GP about 20 years ago. I know this riders last name was Walker. Help me out here Strong Bad. Was it George?

Old school Checkers MC members are saying tonight that this is Al Rogers NOT George Walker. Regardless of who it is, to be a Checker means that he was well above the average desert racer at some point in his racing.

I'm just glad I've still got old friends still around who can remember. The George Walker stuff really hit home as I had totally forgotten about George, the link I was given really got to me, seeing him on the Kawi Bighorn, what a fuggn' pig and how he put up with it to do so well was quite a feat, 350cc rotary valve "Enduro".

He already said it was a custom build (a ILO engine Hoffmann tank and a frame made by a local frame builder), so being a "Devoid Of Trouble" aka DOT is right out.

I thought that whole caption went with the second picture. Didn't read carefully.


You get 5 bonus points for knowing what DOT stands for.
