WHAT WE WANT
COOL STUFF ON THE MXA MUST-HAVE LIST
“The MXA wrecking crew is painfully
aware that KTM has a corporate policy
against allowing any tests of race bikes
in the middle of the series. But, we
always ask and Roger always says no.
Then we ask again and Roger wavers.
Then we ask again and Roger agrees.”

“An engine can be too powerful, but
let’s not confuse that with making too
much horsepower. More horsepower
allows the rider to choose the kind of

were friends before the 1981 season.
Since then we haven’t been friends. I

just Bob Hannah. There’s not much else
Faded Glory: The Saddleback Massacre—
“Imagine going to a car dealership
that only sold the Ford Aspire, Suzuki
Samurai, Nissan Micra, Hyundai Excel
or Chevrolet Corsica—and each car
had a sticker price of $40,000. People
would walk out of the dealership. The
only difference between junk-heap cars
and mini cycles is that clueless parents
would happily cough up the money for an
expensive bike that hadn’t changed much
