BH: Oh yeah, I ride everything, even a cruiser. We are going to get a Super Tenere soon so I plan to do a bunch of that adventure riding. As far as riding skills, shoot yes, they translate! Just pure, knowing how to ride a motorcycle, and watching what you are doing and knowing how to use the brakes. Going the other way, I learned everything I know about riding just having fun out in the desert. I didn't race until I was 18. That would be really strange today, but for kids today, it wouldn't be all bad. I had a lot of years, from eight to 18, to learn how to ride but I wasn't burnt out, I liked it. When you look at Damon Bradshaw when he was 18, he already hates it, because he had been racing since he was eight. From 18 to 27 I'm not burnt out. I think waiting to race is an advantage. But it is just not the way the system works now. The system, these days, starts them when they are this big [knee high] and by the time that they are 18 they are beat up and burnt out. I think you could get around that system, but I don't know how you would plan it. It would have to be an accident. I think it could still work if a guy really rode a lot. I rode a lot from eight to 18. I knew how to ride a bike, I could go down a sand hill in the desert better than a lot of guys racing. I knew how to use the brakes, I knew how to ride, how to hold my legs. OK, I just had to hone that stuff. But if you asked me how to hit a berm, I would go, 'Hmm, I had to learn that.' I did now how to ride but I was smart enough to steal ideas, and I did. Many ideas came from watching Roger ride. People have distinctive things. Roger has some certain talents that a lot of riders just don't have. And they really made them good and I wanted to steal them. Much of it was how he sits down, when he sits down, how he uses the brakes, how he uses his knees… These were excellent tools. He wasn't five-time world champ because he was dumb. I might steal some of that from him. There might be an amateur and he's not worth a darn but he might have one good idea… I remember seeing guys that made me go, 'Man, that's a fantastic idea.' For example, in '76, [Steve] Stackable cut a corner in some water and I go, 'Shoot that's a great idea, how he did that?' You can learn from everybody and you need to steal ideas from everybody. Not this one jack trainer that is supposed to teach you how to ride.
