[Malcolm Smith, guest editor of the January 2014 issue, answers a reader letter]
You are the reason that I have had a 41 year—long love affair riding motorcycles! After seeing “On Any Sunday” as a young teenager I was hooked. I spent decades racing motocross, desert and grand prix, now I continue my passion by trail and adventure riding. One of the highlights of my life was meeting you in your old shop in Riverside. Thank you for setting such a great example for this family-oriented activity and also for being such a great ambassador for dirt bikers everywhere! Bless you!
That’s very nice of you to say, Douglas. Anybody who wants to meet me at the shop, I try to meet them and sign whatever they want, or take them around the museum. We have a small museum at the shop. —Malcolm
