    me and Wayne went to the Unadilla MX Rewind or whatever they called it this weekend at Unadilla and Wayne made a new friend named Trampas.

    Pictures as soon as we unload the car and the dirty socks.

    Wayne is convinced this is Steve McQueen and that Steve McQueen is alive and owns and still rides every Husky ever made.

    Ex CZ factory pilot Jaroslav Slipenwrench was there on his factory race ready replica Bultaco with a very rare one off blue bazooka factory pipe that was rumored to increase air leaks on the Bul's by as much as 40%. And thats hard to do.

    His old Russian team mate Valeri Whydidn'tidefectwhenihadthechance was also there with the original #57 bike that he tried to jump (unsuccessfully) the Berlin wall during the German 250cc Grand Prix back in 74.

    I think Wayne might be onto something it does look like him.

    A man I'd never met before asked me to take a picture of his Maico.

    So I did.

    the Friday night lets go into the tent it's raining out autograph session was very cool.

    Barnett probably heard "how's 5 laps sound boys" about 100 times over the weekend.

    so much for youth I can't believe how old some of these guys look I'm so glad I didn't age like they did.

    sooo..I was talking to Gary Jones.

    I'd met his dad in 2007 at Mid Ohio Vintage Days and he was with Mike Runyards dad who was 101 years old.

    I asked if he was still alive (Mr. Runyard) and he died in his sleep at 104. :huh

    And he came across as a decent enough guy this time.
