Leroy Winters Memorial Ride
Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the 48Th ISDT
The 48th International Six Day Trial (ISDT) was held in Dalton, Massachusetts September 17-22, 1973. This is the 26th Reunion Ride to celebrate that event. If you love old dirt bikes or compete in vintage events, this is one not to miss.
The proposed date and details are hopefully more accurate than not but this is only the first draft, the updated information will be located on the Leroy Winters Memorial ISDT Reunion Ride facebook group.
I will try and keep any updates current.
Mark your calendars!
Paris - Dakar first years First Years 1979 - 1997
Sometimes I dream of riding the (old version) of the Dakar, from Paris, France to Dakar, Senegal. On a big BMW motorbike! But if the physical demands and navigation seem impossible, keeping the motorcycle running for that distance through unknown terrain is unimaginable to me.
Some photographs my friend sent me that might interest other vintage Suzuki PE owners…
From my friend and fellow Suzuki PE owner Mat; "Took the 1982 Suzuki PE engine apart and found the cylinder was ported by DG back in the day. On the other side of the cylinder is SW which were probably the initials of the guy doing the porting.”
It must be so cool to discover that! DG Performance was a started by Dan Hangsleven & Gary Harlow in 1974 which is where the name DG - for Dan & Gary came from.

Fred Hoess puts USA on top of scratch results
The FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy is an event for vintage bikes and riders as the name implies and pays homage to the International Six Day Enduro upon which it os derived. Definitely cool seeing the old bikes and riders still going fast and competing in a multiday event testing both machine and rider.
Team and individual results follow below along with more video of vintage bikes!
The past weekend September 23-25 saw the Motocross of Nations at the Redbud race track in Michigan. It's an international event that takes place once a year and of course it was even more special it was held in the United States this year. There were a lot of expectations from Team USA after a great outdoor MX season particularly between the close fought 450 MX class between Eli Tomac and Chase Sexton which was decided at the last race! Then there was controversy over who should ride the 250 class at the MXoN. With all that I made my predictions for the race.
MXoN Pre-qualifying predictions, Top 6:
- 1) USA
- 2) Australia
- 3) France
- 4) Netherlands
- 5) Italy
- 6) Spain
