The Early Years of Motocross
Museum put together this time
line of John DeSoto’s career to
display. It chronicled his early
years growing up in the pineapple
field of Hawaii, his rise to motocross stardom in the late 1960s
and early 1970s, and even his
terms in office as Honolulu city

It’s never good to forget
to tighten something or
forget to put fluid in your
bike. The DB staff likes to
use duck tape as post-it
notes—just write down
what you need to remember and tape it on the seat.
Old photographers are like old
photography equipment—they get
cooler with age. This
a special place in
our very own Ron
Lawson’s heart; can
anyone name him?
Mike Lafferty will return to factory KTM for the 2014 season.
Lafferty will primarily concentrate
on the National Enduro series.
This young group of off-road racers looks very
professional in their matching Fly Racing gear at the
Glen Helen 24-Hour Endurance Race. Nice to see
the younger generation stepping it up.
MAKE IT ROUND
Tires can get deformed
during shipping or when
just laying around. Place
an inflated tube inside the
tire overnight and it will be
back to normal by morning.
A little bit of slime added
in your tube can go a long
way to prevent punctured
flats. So, get slimed before
DeSoto credits his loving
wife and family for all his
success in life.
