Member Info: Retired Space Shuttle Propulsion and Payloads Engineer (MPS/SSME/PLM). Lived and worked at Kennedy Space Center, Fl. 1981-2004. First race, 1974 Hare Hound, Montgomery, Al. Took 2nd place losing to the Suzuki Dealer''s Team bike. I raced a box stock 1973 Suzuki TS185 with one nice addition, the factory Hop Up Kit "Down" pipe. It was faster than any bike in the 200 class that I had to race in back then. Earlier in life I lived in Apple Valley, California (near Victorville) in 1965. That''s about the time guys were just getting started on the British Thumpers, Desert riding was really taking off. Due to an injury to my low back in 1999 I can no longer ride on the Race Track, so I work on the bikes and keep my "stable" going as best I can! Jumping to present day, the bikes are all in better shape than I have ever had them. I own 9 bikes currently but I rarely ride them except I have to once in a while to keep the engines fresh :) Here''s my list: 1974 TM125/1997 RM125/2001 RM250/1975 Honda CR250 Elsinore/2007 Honda 919 (CB900F) /2007 Tank 200cc Dirt Bike (Chinese)/1975 Bultaco 250 Frontera/1972 Suzuki TS185/1973 Suzuki TS185 w/Factory Hop Up Kit.

Info: Because there was no official way to list my bike as a 250 cc Frontera, I had to go with the only option here at bikepics and that was as the 370 model. But it is a 250 just to clear things up. The Bultaco 250 cc Frontera is designated as the M-152 Model.
