Oh, I am so in... as long as you are the Monkey. My knees couldn't take it.  :))

When I attended the MotoGp at Laguna Seca in 90 or 91 they included the side car class. It was amazing to watch.

That's how I got started in motorcycles. The only difference was I rode as the Monkey in motocross while living in Holland as a military dependant. Didn't tell my parents until I dislocated a shoulder, then the jig was up. Dad took it well and let me continue riding.

Old Man,
Just got around to watching the video you posted. Things have sure changed since I was a Monkey. These courses look groomed. In the mid to late 60's they just went out to the woods and found a place to start then marked a course through the trees. And yes I fell off more than once. :)  Most fun a kid could have without getting arrested. ;)
