Wayne Rainey attends our Vintage Flat Track Day

More than 100 people attended our Vintage Flat Track Day at Moto Talbott on Sunday, March 18. The event included appearances by some of our most famous local racers, including three-time world champion Wayne Rainey, AMA Hall of Fame rider Don Castro, and former Honda factory rider Jeff Haney. The parking lot was full of great sideways sliders of the past, made by Honda, Yamaha, Bultaco, Triumph, and other marques. Hope you got a chance to attend. Thanks everyone for coming out!

 Kenny Roberts was Grand National champion in ’73 and ’74, when he scored 2,286 points, collecting points in all 23 races. The dirt track bike you see here has custom side cases, flatside carburetors, a nickel-plated monoshock frame, a striking side-mounted battery, and a vintage set of Goodyear tires.
