Jimmy Phillips

Johnson Motor’s Jimmy Phillips. Jimmy’s bikes were a pretty obvious influence on my Sarah.

Lincoln Wagon

It amazes as old as I’m getting that common cars exist that I have still never knowingly seen. I could swear I’ve never seen one of these before. 

Form Affronts Function

Subtle and practical.

One of the kids on my soccer team had one of these back in the days when the Mongoose was king (I was just starting to race BMX pretty competitively). He let me ride it. That bike was an absolute tank/turd.

Interesting side note. Bob Hannah got his start in BMX. He had never even ridden a real motocross bike until he was 17. Today, most elite motocross/Supercross riders are considering the jump to pro by 16 and have been racing at the national level for 10+ years.

Google Maps Lap Times

I’m not sure if this is a bug or if someone at Google Maps has a sense of humor. This was the recommended route my wife got leaving Pacific Raceways karting track recently. Pretty hilarious.
