After a short hospital stay we have lost another great Builder/Racer. Mike raced sidecars in all types of venues....desert races, dirt track, road racing and landspeed racing. He was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame some years ago. Mike was a outstanding engine builder and did a lot of work for Jay Leno on his motorcycle collection. He knew how to make Vincents and Triumph cycles go fast and set several records on the salt in the late 1970's and early 1980's with his sidecar outfit (with passenger) called "Little Poison" and was a great help to me in writing the SCTA rules for sidecars.  The sport will certainly miss him ........God Speed Mike...........................................

Mike (Penguin) will be missed for sure. I learned a lot from him about Vincents.

Sorry to hear of Mikes passing. He was a good guy and helped me out a few times. I always liked his business card which said at the bottom "Sun Valley Cannon, Gas Motorcycle, and Storm Door Factory" and  "Member Sun Valley Shop Dwellers Acura'n"

Godspeed Mike, you will be missed.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.
