This was my childhood fun. I used to ride it all the time around our house in Conifer, Colorado. Other people on the mountain had dirt bikes and 3-wheelers, so we would build trails and jumps. Plus one of my friends (who lived a fair amount away) had a bulldozer which he used to build a track on his property, which was always a treat to ride. I always wanted to race motocross, but with playing baseball and going to the drag strip it never happened.
This was also the first motorcycle I rode on a dragstrip, at an all motorcycle event at Bandimere Speedway in the suburbs of Denver. I got a big trophy for low qualifier in my class (um, I was the only one in it), then wound up getting beat when they stepped me up to the next class and I had to race a dirt track rider. (Oh yeah, I always wore a helmet and protective gear, this picture was taken of me just kind of posing in front of our house).
