I got a shot of El Hubbo on his '83 R80ST last fall:



And this one in the Badlands, demonstrating how sheep are unnaturally attracted to El Hubbo:

Give the man a cigar

I couldn't beleive it when someone told me about him while he was out on the track. I was in the pits and watched him pull in. Not sure which is older, him or the bike. I think it's a '39 R66

Norbert!

Here he is this past April. He turned 77 the day this was taken. He is racing Fred Mork on the Norton, who I believe is mid sixties.
Two great guys.

710 is me. No orange shirt was practice Friday. I felt a hell of a lot better in the races Saturday and Sunday. I gained way more experience in the 2 races this past weekend than doing track days for the last 3 years. Thanks for posting the pics.
