  1. Just trying to figure out my Epson scanner, and ran across some old slides from back in the day. Before I could afford decent equipment and when I used to ride to and from the races.

    The man..Carl Fogarty

    And my favorite...Eddie Lawson with then champ Wayne Rainey, just months before Wayne crashed and was paralyzed.

  2. You've got some classics there . . . :cool::cool:
     
  3. Hotness!

    I'm a big fan of 500CC 2-strokes! I'm a former CR500R rider and plan to buy a new Service Honda custom built CR 500AF soon! :D
     
  4. These take me back!! Fantastic!, How about starting a thread (sticky) for "scanned",(P&P'd) film shots to show these digi (no frame Limit!!) Togs what we had to get from a 35mm spool in about 20 mins in some cases (footy)??
    ps most of mine would be B&W!!,(that's what the papers used back then) LOL. Kind regards Graham.
     
  5. Thanks Jason. Thought you might enjoy them.

    Nothing like the sound of a 500cc 4 cyl 2-stroke.

    Everytime I shoot an event today I have to almost just kick myself for cheating LOL. I'll shoot 1200 images at a 2-day event. That would have been 33 rolls of film. :eek:
