Definitely do! Can you say sitting on the starting line with a stomach full of butter flies lol. What you can’t see is I am on my toes cause I can barely reach. Dad bumped me up to the 100 class when most 14 year olds were still riding in the 80cc class. Best thing he could’ve done for me. Getting me on a full size moto x bike that early paid off big time as the next few years passed.That’s a code brown if I’ve ever seen one
For total fairness I’ll have to upload one of my early motocross pics if I can find one

That’s awesome, thanks for sharing!Funny you mention Bob Hannah.
I grew up in Lancaster Ca. Most every weekend a bunch of us would meet up with Bob and all ride our dirt bikes through the canyons to "Bean Canyon" near Rosamond Ca.
(A lot of YouTube videos of Bean Canyon)
We had Hodakas, a Yamaha ATI 125 Enduro, Yamaha 125 MX, a BSA 441 and a Husky.
Malcolm Smith was always there hill climbing.
Hanna was incredible, even back then. And, a really nice guy.
Some of the best times of my life.
That was back in 1968-69.
I restored that same Hodaka and also a red AT1 125 last year and donated them both to a MC museum in Kansas.
Would post some pics if I knew how.
