About the Book: Here are the bikes that have carried their riders to championships--described by the riders who steered their bikes to victory. In twenty profiles, riders tell readers what it was like to ride a winning bike, how special features put it ahead of the competition, and what memorable moments happened along the way. Each profile, illustrated with action photography from the bike’s glory days as well as present-day images, offers a detailed technical analysis of the engine/transmission, frame, suspension, brakes, and other features that made the bike special. Rich with detailed photography and one-of-a-kind anecdotes, this is an irresistible celebration of the spirit, the grit, and the gear that made motocross what it is today.
About the Author, Terry Good Terry Good first got interested in off-road motorcycling in 1970 when, at the age of 14, he started trail riding with his dad in Michigan. He began competing in motocross races in 1972, and turned pro in 1975. His career as a professional motocross racer peaked when he competed in the infamous 1976 125 AMA National series. In 1978, Terry bought his first ex–factory works motocross bike, and has since accumulated the most prestigious collection of factory works bikes in the world. Today, Terry works as a futures trader in Chicago, where he lives with his wife, Cindy, and their six children. mxworksbike.com
