Dick Mann

It was a real pleasure to see Dick Mann at the Calistoga Mile. Bugsy is a Racing Institution in American Motorcycling. He had a long and very successful career with big victories in all forms of the sport. Two Time Grand National Champion. 1970 Daytona Winner, giving Honda its first AMA National Win. He was the first competitor to win the Grand Slam in Dirt Track and competed on a national level in Dirt Track, Moto Cross and Road Racing. He also medaled in the Internationl Six Day Trials. You could have guessed that Dick loves motorbikes and is and always has been an incredible bike builder and restorer. Dick is a down to earth guy and a treasure and a great ambassador for our sport.
