    Ken Maeley at Del Mar in 2003. If you don't know who this is or what he is doing, look him up.

    He used to let me ride at the ranch for next to nothing, said he’d rather have me there, than out getting in trouble. Nice man. Every time I drive by the old Maelys ranch (now being developed) it bums me out. Glad I got to be a part of it.

    He was the steel shoe fabricator for flat track racers in California during the 70s and 80s, right?

    Not just California. I know Kansas riders who went to the trouble of getting Maeley shoes.

    Can't help but think of this kind of image when the talk goes to flat trackin'

    at speed, cranking on the throttle, both feet up, sliding hard to the turn exit. I'm assuming this is Gary Nixon, whom I got to meet at Del Mar back in 96, standing on top of the team truck viewing stand for Kevin Atherton's team. A good friend, Stormy Chisler had invited me out to San Diego for work, during which we also went to Springer's shop. That was a pretty special week back in October 96.

    I know, speedway, but it's our flat track. I was looking for something else not even bike related and this popped up and I liked it so...
