Scrambling or Moto X?

It’s Throwback Thursday and as the photo was taken in the late 1970s is was called Scrambling, not Moto X in those days.

It’s also a throwback in other ways. Note the protective gear the rider is wearing, boots, gloves, helmet, goggles and face guard. Compare that to all the body armour worn by Moto X competitors these days.

Another throwback is the camera technology. Film of course but in those days manual focus and manual exposure. A rare colour image as I shot mostly black and white for the local newspaper.

  1. Oh I like this throwback Thursday. So many ‘throwbacks’ as you explain. I am particularly impressed by your skill in catching the motion – no ‘autofocus’ help…which I imagine you also don’t use today 🙂
