I remember that 1st ride at the original MossyHead with Jeff. He was so easygoing while BSing but spanked all our asses once the riding began! Everything we went around, he jumped and giggled alittle (probably). I remeber the guys from percision boats, Dave C, Hilburn, and a few other guys were there for that one!

Yea they were building a boat for him to go fishing on....

I also remember the rain ride with him at Avalon back when it was a blast to ride... poured rain the whole time and we all loved it..

I did not own one of his ISDE bikes but only were he tricked out and rode himself...

I have a full enduro from Jeffs helmet cam from way back in VHS days....

Vico1, I think I met you at one of the club meetings several years ago. I have a friend in Ohio who has been good friends with Jeff since childhood. He called me in 08 to tell me about getting Jeff's bike. I remember being a little jealous but thrilled for Dave. I called dibs for the future. Fast forward to 11, Dave calls to tell me about getting Jeff's 11 bike & did I still want the 08? DUH I mailed a check the next day! I had to wait till the AHRMA VMX at gatorback in March where Dave delivered it. It came with a Ohio title so it was a snap to get FL title/plate. As soon as it got home it was stripped to the frame & everything was refreshed. It was basically stock when I got it with a full FMF Powerbomb system( with SA). Jeff kept the plastics (he has 31 years of ISDE plastics hanging on his garage walls!!!) but included a spare set of graphics he kept from Greece. Naturally I had to mount em, also had to "fix" it like I want.....ya'll know how that is Here is some pix..

Thanx doc & T. Yeah Vic I always did like the 80/81 YZ's. They just looked like mx bikes should. John and I have been racing vintage stuff for several years now. I really like going to a race and not having 350 youth classes!! Nothing but old farts like us banging bars by day, killing brain cells by night. John's a good guy, we have been riding together for 41 yrs

Below is the link to Part 2... Enjoy...
