Right after setting up this post I found this old thread about this documentary that has some vintage manufacturer ads posted in it.

Wow those were fun times. At RM 800 the motorcycle rider from Japan that was soloing the race came into our pit and and fell over and passed out. We fed him and got him some coffee and water and worked on his bike and got him back on the road. As for us Dave Richardson made one of his very rare mistakes and got stuck in the tide pools behind Ivan and Mark and we lost 12 hours before he was able to get out and get to the finish line. Back then their wasn't any M Sats , Sat Radios, GPS, or trackers you were really on your own. Mark and the Mcmillins were tough to beat in baja.
