Biganski, through Del Amo Motorsports where he worked, was my path to a Yamaha TZ250. Steve and I teamed at Willow Springs, him building and tuning with me riding, and moved on to AMA 250GP. In seven years of competition my TZ never failed. Well, except when we tried nitrous oxide injection for WERA’s unlimited class—it blew up quite spectacularly then. Then there was the time it seized during the national at Firebird, but I caught the clutch in time, broke the seizure lose, and continued to a fourth-place finish. My TZ was always clean and competitive; I was lucky and blessed to have Biganski in my corner. He is now working at Moto Classic Garage in Inglewood, California.
