I was filmed by AirOne for excessive speeding on the Sea to Sky. That cost me a lot of money.
Supposedly according to some folks here a R1200GS is virtually impossible to wheelie. Does doing many thru the gear 100mph wheelies on one count then?
Unfortunately most of my 15 mins in the moto world are shame instead of fame. Like signing autographs for law enforcement, film of going over the handlebars on a quad they used for their mud bog commercial, or forgetting my boots and getting photographed on the Dragon wearing Velcro tennis shoes (see avatar)
Sometimes there is something to be said for being anonymous.
15 minutes? Or 30 some years? I was stationed at a computer command in Norfolk the last 6 years I was in the Navy, working on a system called Nalcomis, which automated the maintenance and supply documentation side of Naval Aviation. Part of those duties was maintaining the at the time existing system, which was paper, on a form called a Vids/Maf. We worked with another command at Pax River, MD, that administered the entire program. We did the documentation stuff (Volume 5). Some of the user manuals had pictures of the various maintenance documents to assist users in filling them out (Marines are actually Naval Aviation... heheheheh).
So since we wrote this section, we put our names on the various document examples Lt Pam Miles was my boss, AE2 Mac is actually AQCS McGinty. Lots of familiar names of old friends. One of my documents, where I made myself an ASCM, was blown up and featured prominently at my Chief's Initiation. That one is no longer there, since this pub is under constant change. However, one has remained, which is displayed below. Judging from the Julian date, this was done in 1986. The actual pub can be found at :

Oh yea, I did ride a motorcycle to work. Yamaha Maxim. Damn thing almost killed me.
Did you know Bruce McClurg? Good guy
I knew of him but he was on a salvage ship, the Grasp I believe. I was with Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit Two.
That is my bike. As soon as I got the seat I rode to the valley of fire state park outside of Vegas and snapped some pics. I guess they liked what I sent them!
I sold the bike with over 100K miles a few years ago. The seat was still in great shape!
Lots of cool accomplishments here. My 30 minutes, 1987 and 1999 US National Speedway Champion. 12 years between titles! Took over 25 National appearances to win twice. More a record of devotion than talent!
Getting a trophy at NEPG event in Daytona from 2017. The first test went about as bad as it could; crash, stalls, folding my pipe after hitting a stump while letting a pro rider pass me. But, I got my nerves calmed down, put in 4 great tests, mainly due to my "sand skill" on the last 2 tests. Two other riders on my row got the best of me in the first two tests in the tight stuff, but once we started hitting sand, I was the one pulling them. Last 2 test rides were +15 and +35 sec in my class, which made up for the poor first test. Hopefully get that rush again in 2019.
you know if you won, your life would have been quite different. his too...
