Flashback Friday

Your faithful blogger on a TZ250 at Ontario Motor Speedway, in...well, let's just say a long time ago. Note the treaded Dunlop triangulars, the Mike Hailwood-replica racing boots, and the ponytail escaping from under the Bell Star. Make that a long, long time ago.

This has to be '74-'76 +/ judging by the Camel Pro sticker on the tail. Wink wink nod nod. Great shot!

It's '74 or '75, but not '76. In 1976 the AMA introduced sound rules that required us to run silencers on the expansion chambers. The stingers on the chambers make this a pre-'76 photo.
