Hey now goons is a little harsh. If i was lackey i would have rode any thing i could get my hands on except the harley mx 250 (slug) all i was going by was the back cover of a kids mx mag that had a liitle clip of bad brad and a old husky w/fox shocks. the first kaw he rode was the kx400 which maybe was the father of the kx 500. he stayed in a hut in some country over in europe for a while in training for the 500cc title. easy boy :thumbsup:

They even had a factory team, they should had persued m/x futher, harley always had a rich racing heritage. :thumbsup:

If Harley had continued racing motocross, we would NOT be riding such advanced machines today. They would have convinced the AMA to ban single shocks, rising rate suspension, cartidge forks, long travel, disk brakes, reed valves, power valves, twin cams, over head cams, flat slide carbs, tps', etc., so they could remain competetive. The Japanese factories would have pulled out. And there would be two or three Supercrosses each year. One of which would be at the LA Coliseum.

I think Bassani used an Italian flag, but, I could be wrong....
