More from the Harrington 1/2 Mile

I recently sent the Harrington slides down to Larry Lawrence for his blog The Rider Files. He's a contributing editor at Cycle World, and has a superb collection of motorcycle racing photos taken during the 80's and up to current times. He also has an encyclopedic knowledge of the racers, down to the names of club level riders all over the country.

He had offered to digitize the slides for me, and if any were worthy he would load some on his site. Well he came through on both promises, as I just got the slides back along with a CD containing the digi's, and he did in fact publish many of the images on The Rider Files, including the identification of riders. I was pretty psyched to find out who I had photos of;

Here's Chris Carr riding a Wood Rotax sporting an amateur plate with Dellorto sponsorship.

Randy Goss, check the helmet sponsor!

Bubba Shobert on the RS750

I'll post more of these as I have time, but you can check 'em out at the rider files...

Big thank you to Larry for his work!
