Where's The Motocrossers?

I was just wondering how many of you used to ride or still do ride motocross as well as play on the street. I for one used to race and ride all the time until I got forced into retirement (partially) Anyway, if you are a motocrosser or used to be I thought why not share the pics? So I'll start it off with some pics of me at my home track back in the states.

I have many years on the dirt. Like mentioned before, Honda was my choice in the dirt.

Nice Brother! I won 7 state titles and 3 regional ones throughout my career starting in 93. Never ran the quads competitively though. They always felt like a flying refrigerator in the air! Nice quad though!!!!!!!

I used to race mx (ama #188) when I lived in jersey. when I got to florida I had to let it go. I still ride every once in a while and wish I could do it every day CR250 baby! best bike ever made.

If I had to make a choice... I would give up the street before the dirt any day. I never had so much fun in all my life

Started in the dirt at age 6, raced in the Mid-Ohio MX circuit in '79 on a YZ-250G, Virginia Hare-Scrambles Over-30 Class in the mid-90's.

I'd have to dig really deep in the basement boxes for pics though.

Hugh??? Wha'???

Sold my R1 this fall and bought an '05 YZ-250F so I can ride while I teach my 13 year old son how to ride next spring. Haven't rid dirt in over 20 years, and back then it was when I borrowed bikes from friends.

I won a state championship in Harescrambles back in '85 also won an AMA national harescramble, did MX all the way upto 2000, qualified for Lorrettas several times over, and had just qualified in 30+ when I broke my wrist and had to call it quits.

I do think about buying a 450 and doing motard racing every once in awhile

No pics but I rode a Kawasaki KDX220R. Great bike for the trails. Rode dirt for 9 years before going to street. Dirtbikes crash cheaper too!

I always rode hondas, but did anyone ever own a KTM? How are they doing now, lost touch with the motocross world.
