Archaeology


When I was seven, I had this poster on my bedroom wall. No relatives, neighbours, or friends had motorbikes, so this was my first inspiration for the dirt and noise that many years later, I now claim as my own. (OK I haven't actually done a desert race yet). Until today I never knew the who, when, or why details of the photo. Thanks to a post on Hell For Leather, a little piece of history now has a place. Mojave California 1971. Photo Bill Eppridge. If it wasn't for this single photo, maybe I would have never gravitated to planet Sideburn.
