TWO-STROKE MADNESS AT THE WASHOUGAL MOTOCROSS NATIONAL
TWO-STROKES ARE EVERYWHERE AT THE 2019 WASHOUGAL MOTOCROSS NATIONAL
The 2019 Washougal National is here and it’s warming up to be an exciting one. We walked around the amateur pits to check out all of the cool modern and vintage two-strokes that were causally hanging out amongst the Washougal, Washington grass and trees. In this gallery you’ll find two-strokes in the age range from 2020 to the 1970s, you’ll also find some random electric bikes and photos of the 125 All-Star class practicing and getting ready for their intermission race tomorrow.
We thought this was pretty funny. Amongst the vintage and modern two-strokes that flooded the pits, we saw a few Alta electric motorcycles around as well. This one was hooked up to a gas powered generator with a fan pointed on it to keep it cool while it was charging.
This is also Luda’s bike. This is a Husqvarna WR360. The WR stands for wide ratio transmission and it was the off-road model, but racers liked the wide ratio transmission better because it rolls on the power easier. The bike was sitting at Dick Hill’s barn for 22 years before Dick let Luda fix it up and ride it.
