Scary all the history involved, I was 5 years old when all this history was being made in the early 70's. They were dragging knees and I was roosting a honda Qa-50 at honda hill in San Diego. Honda hill is gone now, riders from back then have moved onto other things. The circuit still remains though and I look forward to watching the race and all the new talent this year and for the years to come.

He was out, his brother-in-law (Paul Smart) answered the phone, and a legend was born....
