Jay Leno’s Garage Shows Off Sidecars

Pretty cool skit. Bill Becker of Becker Moto Works is the former President, multi-time (and current) SRA-West champion, and a great fabricator. He’s currently working on my own bike actually, widening the rear suspension and installing a more modern shock. His efforts to bring back a vintage class to the west coast is also really cool. I’ve been to the shop and he is building about six different machines with BMW or Yamaha power. Very nice to see them come along. Maybe I can secure a ride for the 2013 season. He has mentioned building a vintage to do the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, which would be super-cool.
One cool anecdote: when Bernard mentions how he tried as passenger for two laps and was exhausted, he was on my bike. We did a taxi-ride session during an April race. Really cool guy. Very enthusiastic about racing, whether 2,3, or 4 wheels.
