hallman racing


Oh man...I haven't heard that name in years! I remember
having a set of Hallman Racing Pro-Armor, chest protectors.
They were the hottest things on the trail!

Yep, that was 1980-something! :)

I had a Kawasaki Coyote minibike. Probably worth as much as my current ride if I had kept it!

Yea I was super cool I had an open face helmet with that IRON JAW thing that bolted on to it so it was a full face, I think it gave me more MPH's when my dad bolted it on my lid, but the coolest thing that I have kept from the past is from 1986 2 weeks or so before David Baily was injured. It is a baseball hat with Broc Glover, David Baily, Ron Lechien, Micky Diamond, and Jonny Omara's autographs. I think its worth about $750,000,000,000 for sure! :D :)

You win! That autographed hat is the coolest!

I dunno about you, but I miss the Carlsbad track with that
nasty, high-speed downhill...

I have the last 500cc GP run on the carlsbad track on VHS, circa 1985 or 1986. VERY cool. Been wanting to convert it to DVD and clean up the commercials, etc. (it was recorded of ABC.) I throw it in the vcr now and again just to see the old guys. :D

WOW!! Good turnout thus far. And I think were still missing about five more peeps.

Let's begin planning a trip now. What dates will be best for all?

I need to do it quick, little baby Nicholas Aiden is on his way come June 13th, 2004.

Bill has it right... all the new guys will have to ride behind me and I'm way, way in the back. Last time I rode to the front, I got t-boned by some guy who came down from Idaho :D. Same ride another idaho rider up front crashed and broke a foot :D. Next ride, a blue bike up front crashed and broke a radiator :D. Not safe up there. Very scary :).

As I recall, a orange KTM t-boned me and used me for traction that ride. :D

Eric,
It's all about protecting you slower guys from the elements. Don't forget the time I saved you all from that nasty stinking cowpie.

Protecting who, "slower guys" :)... I usually feel pretty fast when I drive past the carnage on the side of the trail. All this good natured prodding makes me feel like riding. Can't wait to get into all this mud the snow melt's going to make. Straight up Kirkman Hollow in 12 inches of mud should be great fun.

Like MrMoto, all this jabbin' makes me feel like riding! :)

Of course, Eric has never passed me on the trail in a pile...

Come to think of it, he's never passed me, even when I hurt my ankle in Hobble Creek! :D

Didn't know a DRZ could go so fast, did ya? :D

I'm pretty sure that comment was directed at me. But then again I'm not sure who passed me if anyone did, with all the squished cricket guts covering my goggles and all it was hard to see anything.

Actually, now that I have finally replaced my bars and chucked the old bent ones I shouldn't be squirting of the side of the trail as frequently. At least that's what I tell myself.
Doug
