Anyone got any Photo's of Dave they wish to share?

I've been back in touch with him via email recently and caught up on old times, we raced together in the early 80's.

Dave moved to the USA some years ago and is enjoying life in LA, I steered him over to the forum and he mailed to say he'd enjoyed browsing the photo's, i've suggested he registers and joins us when he gets chance, so knowing he's looking in, a few photo's would be good.

Many of you will remember his performances on the RG500 at Scarborough in the mid 80's including winning the Cock of the North.

David was a demon around Oliver's Mount - his finest moment was arguably the 1984 Gold Cup meeting when he won the first leg of the feature event - beating Sheene, McElnea, Grant, Huewen, Parrish, Salle, Burnett etc etc.

Agree that was a gutsy ride that day in, as I recall, less than perfect conditions.

I actually found this very photo last week via google and sent it on to Dave, he said he hadnt seen it before.

It's one from my Dad's photo album, have put it up on a few forums in the past - will post a few more once I've scanned them.
