A 1974 CR125, the bike I had after the mighty CT1
Pat and Mark about to lay waste to the 50CC True Grits Run. Pat's riding the trusty 1983 Yamaha RX 50 cruiser, because it is better to look good than to go fast. Mark is riding the 1967 Honda "50" with the cafe fairing, tank and seat, oil cooler and an engine good for 50 miles of racing. Too bad the Grits is 85 miles.
Mark and Pat showing the fruits of their labors after the 1989 True Grits Rally, while Beth looks on in awe. Check out the ironing board leg header and the trick VW exhaust tip silencer on Mark's bike.
Pat, nearly leaving the ground over a jump at Milton, FL, on a mighty 1978 IT 175 Yamaha
Pat, actually ahead of someone in a motocross race on the mighty IT.
The successor to the Mighty IT, the 1980 PE 175, complete with Works Performance shocks.
Pat, receiving the Mark Hudson-patented rider restraint device (1985). Note the bungee cords for attaching the device to the bike seat. The user must provide his own "secret weapon".
Mark, at Christmas 1981, trying to get someone to yank his chain. Where did he get all that hair?
At the overlook on the Richard Russell Scenic Highway. Left to right, Loxley, Pat and Beth. Left to right bikes: Loxley's 1982 Honda CX650 Turbo, Ron's Katana 750 Suzuki, and Pat's 1983 Suzuki GS750E.

On the PE175, at the motocross track in Milton, Florida. Note the actual daylight between the ground and the rear wheel of the bike.

Pat and Garry did a track day at Talladega, April, 2002. Ruthie came and shot some photos around noon. We need a telephoto lens for this kind of stuff.
The mighty Hawk, track prepped. Pay no attention to the scratches on the fender in the lower left corner of the photo.
