Meeting a Legend

Last weekend  I got meet a flattrackin' legend: Jim Rice.

Jim Rice San Jose 1971

Jim stars in 'On Any Sunday'... he provided some spectacular footage by crashing through the bales and fence at the mile.

Jim was a BSA factory rider and won many National AMA Flattrack races... beating the likes of Mert Lawill, Dick Mann, Kenny Roberts and many, many more... on brit iron.

Jim at Alice's Restaurant - a local biker hangout

Inside Alice's... good beer, burgers and clientele...

Jim showed me around his backyard and took me up to Alice's Restaurant (made famous by Arlo Guthrie) where we shared beer and race stories. What a guy!

We like Nicky Hayden!
