I made sleeping bags quite a popular topic in the DR650 thread.
I rode and competed in and finished 3x Scottish Six Day Trial in 88 89 90
Six days of the hardest riding you ever imagined!
Brilliant event and great fun. Finished mid pack at the last event.
Harder than 40,000 bastards
I lived in Covington Ga where "in the heat of the night was filmed". When the series ended alot of the props and costumes where sold off. I bought a pair of jeans that "Bubba Skiner" wore several times in the show. That ain't the famous part, famous part was when I would tell the ladies who's pants I had on. They all wanted to touch and rub on them, best pair of wranglers I ever had.
You could always just lie about it.
My Seca 650 was the featured for sale bike in the on the radar section of Motorcycle Classics magazine. Not much but all I got.
I danced on TV.
I made it on-air during the Jay Thomas Show on Sirius/XM a number years ago. (Jay was best known for playing hockey goalie Eddie Lebec on Cheers)
The guest on the show that day being interviewed was a woman who had a company that printed Hallmark type cards specifically for prison inmates.
She was a bit 'unique' to say the least , and had some odd ideas. I joked to my wife that I could make up better cards than she was putting out and told her one. She said, "you should call in and tell the show that". She then proceeds to dial the number and hands me the phone. Next thing you know the producer answers and puts me live on-air with Jay.
I told him and the guest that I was willing to give her this text for a birthday card to mail to someone doing time....
'Another year older. Time for a switch..... Move two cells over and be someone else's bitch'
Jay howled..... I won a prize.
My mug was in a picture in the BMWMOA magazine, in an article by Jack Reipe. He is a friend, although I don't admit that in public.
I had an article published in Enthusiast, the AMA magazine.
I got to deliver the speech when my grandfather was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame. That was cool, but only lasted like 5 minutes. If your interested: http://www.oriesteele.com
Hey guys. According to post #1 it’s 15 minutes of moto fame!
I loved that show.
Fun place to hang out and as a Minnesota resident I got a 10% discount. I shot the shit with Andy Goldfine, the owner, on more than one occasion. Does that count?
The Wee strom is setting out on a ride around Lake Superior. It was so much fun a week later I rode around in the other direction.
Fame is fame! Lets hear about it!
Raced side by side w 2x SB world champ and 5 time Daytona winner Scott Russell many times. He stuffed me going into the bowl at Little Taladaga in this pic in 88, forcing me wide into the loose. I hung on and came back and passed him back at the exit at this moment. Then he passed me back at the next turn. That’s how we ultimately finished. Good times.
Pic above was Formula USA. This is B superbike (750) that same day. 22 Scott Russell and 19 Mike Smith in tow. Finished 2nd behind Russell this race again. As usual.
Outstanding! I cut that one out and framed it for shop art. Perhaps the best bike pic ever shot? (I would argue for it.)
Me and 2 other fools, all wearing blue 1pc Stich's, made center cover in a montage. A magnifying glass is needed to make out any detail. I posted somewhere (?) about it all and invited all blue Stich users to join an ersatz group, Blue Man Riders.
Ran for public office in the city of Philadelphia while campaigning almost solely on my motorcycle. Twice.
Well dang, if we can't grasp at straws, I've got nothing...........
Did you get elected?
I wrecked a CRF80 during a Christmas parade that was televised locally a few years back. Never got to see it.
Werent some scenes from the Dukes of Hazzard also filmed there?
Back on topic......
As it's supposed to be "Moto Related Fame"..........does having a Tennessee State Trooper ask for your autograph count?
