WHAT WE WANT
COOL STUFF ON THE MXA MUST-HAVE LIST
“There was no internet back
then. There were barely any jungle
drums to communicate who was
who in the sport, but there was
the weekly issue of Cycle News.
Being on the cover sprung me
from my obscure Texas racing
roots to media darling overnight;
of course, a week later, I was
under the ejection end of 10,000
—Jody’s Box—page 8.
“I never saw my race as an
issue, but at that time, regardless of how many races I won, the
Japanese factories never offered
me a thing while helping the guys
I beat. But, Mitch Payton and
Husqvarna were amazing to me.
To this day, I believe I’m working at Husqvarna because Mitch
Payton put me on the map.”

“Think of your suspension shop
in the same way that you think
of the clinic that is going to do
Lasik surgery on your eyes. Are
you going to go with the doctor
with the cheapest price? Or, are
you going to research the doctor’s
credentials, get references from
previous patients and check his
tech equipment? Trust me, not
every suspension shop is perfect
or flawless, including mine.”

“Damon Bradshaw and Doug
Dubach raced them to 4th and
12th in the 1991 AMA 500
Nationals. Only 1000 were made,
and the MXA wrecking crew
derisively called the WR500 the
‘Maytag’ because it vibrated so
much. WR500 production only
lasted one year.”

“What was so special about
Dean’s YZ450F engine was that
it didn’t have any secret parts.
That made it interesting. Why?
Because it could be built by any
enterprising YZ450F rider—be he
a Vet, Novice, Pro or Professional
Practice Rider. It wasn’t unobtanium; it was obtanium.”
