Dave Harpur and I in Finland

This photo is from 1989 and I believe would have been taken in Finland. There doesn't seem to be much happening on the track though so I wonder whether this was taken at a mid-week test day, either at the GP track Ruskeasanta itself or perhaps elsewhere.

Dave Harpur was my mechanic in 1989. An Irish lad, Dave answered an ad I placed in Trials & Motocross news. He flew over for an interview and tryout and within minutes he had fixed my temperamental generator. He was offered the job on the spot!

Dave was a great mechanic, a good friend and very funny too. We had a lot of good times with Dave and I miss his company.
