Sadly my friend and racer Yvon Duhamel passed away recently. I had many great times with the Duhamels and saw YD perform his magic on the Team Obsolete Bikes he rode. Finally YD asked for a ride in 2002 at the old Laconia track and I brought up the old White Commando, YD launched the bike like he owned it and just flat out left everyone in his dust. I got to pit crew for him a few times and finally had the honor of him riding my equipment on the original Laconia track. He may have very well set the fastest lap time of all time on the Commando, for sure very few ever could beat YD, when his equipment was up to snuff. God speed YD, a true champion of motorcycling and snowmobiles and multi time hall of fame racer.
