Did you ever race at Ascot? My Dad used to take us to the Flat track races there around 56-60. BSA Gold Stars were ruling at that time as I recall.

Re: Ascot

Watching was fun but a lot of people got hurt doing it. I saw more than one guy get off and slide along the rail for a couple hundred feet. Definitely not for the fainthearted.

BTW we also used to watch the guys racing XLCHs, TriumphTTs, etc at the scrambles down by the marshes where the Artesia Freeway is now. My Uncle had a Mustang bike and was a big racing nut so he took us a lot.

What they call Xtreme sports are kind of mild in comparison IMHO.
