Jedd,I would bet a dollar to a donut that gentleman is Roy Burke. He rode BSA's, was from that area, and was one heck of a hillclimber, and enduro race. won the Big Bear race in 1955. I rode with him and Kenny Edmiston on many an AMCA rode run. Lost both within the last couple of years. rich

Jedd, When I started riding 45 years ago these guys had been riding for some 20 years. They were my heros. Now between you and I we get to keep their history alive for those that follow. it doesn't get any better than that. Rich
