He passed away when I was 14. I think that is the first time I ever thanked him. He got me a Honda 50 when I was 9 followed by a Kawasaki 100 then another. After that he was gone. I took over from their. Made the biggest mistake of my life and got an ATC200. Dumped that and got a 89 CR250 then a 92 RM250 to a 89 RM125 to a 96 KX250 to a 87 CR250 to now. Their were some gaps in their thats why the years and sizes of the bikes jump around. I am sucker for a good deal.
43, I bought my first Bike with my very first job's pay check!
My Mother told me year, after year, after year.... during my troubled youth ("I WILL NEVER BUY YOU A DIRT BIKE!").
God bless your DAD! My son also will have every available opportunity to excel in any endeavorer in which he wishes to pursue.

Rode for 5 years as a teenager on my Honda XL 125 then never sat on a bike for 22 years. Pulled the bike out of Mom's garage a couple of years ago, changed the spark plug and oil, fresh gas, and it fired right up. Soon learned that I needed more that the 125 and bought a used 2004 WR450 10 months ago.
Been grinning ever since.

Hey limey, what year was your DT175? I still have my Dads 78 DT175 he bought for himself when he got me my YZ. Ive been thinking of getting it going again.
41, started on DT175 then a TS250, got back into dirt bikes last year and bought 05WR450 absolutely love it, wheelies so easily. So much better riding in Indian Graves Alberta, since moving from England to Canada, My mates and me are hoping to do some trips to the US next year starting with Montana, got to do some research first. Oh and my son is 14 also rides "our" 450, he has ridden my mates(37) WR250 but finds it laking in power.
