You be the judge. I watched MX at the tracks around Houston and don't remember seeing this.
I was at Saddleback a few times during those years and can tell you that if there were topless women around, the spectators would not be looking at the bikes. At least not the guys that I knew.

Looks like racers still have distractions to deal with:

Never rode any enduros, but it appears they take more concentration than other types of motorcycle competition....

There used to be a NETRA enduro that had a checkpoint @ a nudist camp.
late 70s-early 80s.

my old 8mm home movies

Back here again to this thread after along absence. Cool to see the thread still ringdinging along.

Back in my dirt racing days in the Sandy Eggo area - AMA District 38 c1969 to 1972 - I shot some 8mm home movies when finances allowed. Carlsbad Raceway, Encinitas, Miramar, the desert, Santee, and a few other spots. Also some footage from the 1971 Elsinore GP. In the '90s I had the movies copies to VHS and recently I copied them from VHS to digital so the quality isn't as good as it could be. If I were a fanatic I'd redo them direct from film to digital but I'm not that motivated at the moment.

Anyway, I've edited stuff as best as I can and uploaded it all to YouTube. I note that Earthroamer is an old D38 racer on a Sachs. Maybe you're in there somewhere hidden in the grainy film and fuzzies?

Here's the link to the stuff on YouTube.

Glad to see you back vintagemxr! Heard about the demise of vintagemxr on ktmtalk and was hoping that wasn't you! Thanks for taking the time to upload those videos too.

We're heading out to the AMA Vintage Days Thursday, so that should be an interesting and wet experience. Supposed to have rain the entire time we're there - awesome!!

There was another one of me around? I've been using the moniker since 1996, I guess I should have copyrighted it. Next thing you know MSR or Ralph Lauren will be bringing out a VINTAGEMXR line of race gear or underwear or something and I'll have once again missed my chance at fame and fortune.

Ah, I checked, KTMTalk, the other fellow spelled it slightly differently. On a serious note, I'm sorry to read about the other fellow's passing. Sounds like he was motorcycle guy through and through.
