Was being super sarcastic with the constant push of the broadcast to over simplify everything to attract the casual fan

Dave your quiz may have been a fail but it’s still of value, especially to those of us who weren’t old enough (or even around for some) in 1980.
In Oz the only access we had to international moto in the 80s was via two month old MXAs or a column in the local rags that were usually about three months behind.
I started following MX in the states about 1984 so knew most of the riders but not all. If you’re a true fan you can appreciate the present more if you value the past.

Suddenly, I’m a freckled face kid in Rio Rancho. Riding my ‘77 XR-75 in boots and Levi’s, open face glitter helmet, three sizes too big. Different days, I’d imagine I was one of them out riding. It was a different time, when you had to wait for a magazine to come out monthly, or an occasional snippet on Wide World of Sports.

Bring back the SUPERBIKERS!

I would have had to really think about Howerton and Burnworth, but I think I could name those guys. I would have missed Gibson.

Braaapin' aint easy.

I get it.
I got it.
It was fun to see that the names were there and "check myself".

Remembering Gibson's last name took a second...or two.

What I remember about those days...
Watching the factory teams sort their newest/latest bikes out a Golden State Series Races (Thank you Stu Peters!)
Racing 3-4 races a week.
Bikes were SOOOOO cheap!
Drum brakes were SOOOOO bad (Adjusting Dbl Leading Shoe front brakes was an interesting lesson).
Things really did seem simpler then.
Fox Gear and JT Gear were your main choices.
Boots were leather...but, I think Dave's were plastic...like a Storm Trooper from Star Wars laughing
Metzelers were the only choice for Sadlleback and Carlsbad in the summer.
Sun Rims
"Aluminum Silencers" were a big deal.
Rubberband starts at smaller tracks.
The "alternate track" at Avenal...REAL Motocross! (Huron was flooded...'83 GSS!)
Mugen 125s were all the rage in 1980/81...Thanks Johnny O!
Entries were $20-25
Tracks were EVERYWHERE...
You could ride damn near ANYWHERE...

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

I had leather, but did try the plastic boots and was able to successfully detach my ACL

The best looking gear designs of all time. Especially the Honda and Yamaha gear.

Is that the Backstreet Boys?

is that from 1982 or 83?

I thought the plastic "Skywalker" boots were Scott's? Man, I wanted a pair of those.
