Later a group of the Dirt Rider staff attended the Last Chance Trail Ride that went from Sacrameto to Lake Tahoe. Along the way it went through Magoo's home town of Forest Hill. At the time Factory Effex owner and former factory Bultaco and Suzuki racer Bryar Holcomb was an ad sales guy for DR, and he ran into Chandler flying around in the woods on a CR500R. Chandler was prepping for the Superbikers race, so Honda had sent him a rear wheel with a Dirt Track tire to practice with. The problem was that the wheel was for a works Honda with disc rear brakes, and Magoo's practice bike had a rear drum brake. So Chandler is blasting through the woods with a smooth dirt track tire and no rear brakes on a 500cc motocross bike. He convinced Holcomb to leave the ride for a bit and follow Danny on his trails. Bryar was on an IT490 Yamaha, so he had the top speed to stay the pace, and he just keyed off Magoo and did what he did. Finally, Magoo approached a sunny gap in the dense forest, and hit a jump that launched him out of the forest into the sunlight in fourth gear. The landing was back in the woods. Holcomb gulped, manned up and jumped blind right behind the Honda speedster. The jump was into the sun because it crossed a paved road! Magoo jumped it without even checking traffic. That was enough for BH, and he rejoined the trail ride.When options ran out in the U.S., Chandler took a KTM ride in Europe, and he was faster and more consistent that anyone expected, and that earned him a Kawasaki ride for the following year. At the Paris SX Magoo crashed off the track and was left paralyzed with reduced control of his hands. Danny showed the heart of a champion and went of to promote races and work with children for the remainder of his life.The motorcycle industry never forgot Danny, though, and recently Brad Lackey had been spear-heading a project to get Chandler a specially equipped van that would allow him to continue his work.
