Flashback Friday – Youthful Fun

This week’s Flashback Friday goes all the way back to 1983.  This photo was sent to me yesterday by my long-time friend Chad.  He’s the one posing on the ground.  He’s a very trusting sort, don’t you think?  And who is that on the motorcycle?  Yep, it’s me.  This brought back a bunch of memories, even if they’re not really vivid to my mind.  This was taken in Buchanan County, Virginia, near what was called the Hagy hill climb.  What fun!

  1. Great shot!

    However….always be aware that it’s moments like these that can go terribly wrong and become fodder for America’s Funniest Videos. 🙂

  2. Good point Alan.

    Okay, here’s the disclaimer: Kids, do not try this at home. These were professional riders on a closed course. The event you see was rehearsed many times, and the actual path of the motorcycle was several feet behind the willing jumpee :).

    Have a great weekend everybody!

  3. Good to see you have the helmet and your friend has the body armour 😀

    Great shot though! One of the real reasons photography holds so much – it captures that moment, that we can look back on forever. Or at least pull out at our kids 21st party…….
