My first bike was an '87 TT225; and I still have it in my garage!!

I take her to ride every now and then on some light trails near my place :lol:. She is almost in original shape, except for the faded graphics and missing handgards.

My current bike is '09 WR450.

My first bike was a '89 DR100. I was 11 years old and LOVED it! I was a typical dumb-ass kid though.. I ran her out of oil and seized her up. My Dad taught me a pretty good lesson on that one, lol.. Needless to say, it was that experince that made me the anal maintainence guy I am now.

First bike purchased in 1986 was an '82 IT465. Had that until I burned a hole in the piston 2 years ago so I replaced it with my current bike, an '02 WR426F.

Just put 100 psi in the tires. Doh! That's 100 Kilometers per hour! You'll have to gear it up a little! :smirk:

It has good gearing but no power. Going 100 up a hill it will drop to like 80 wide open throttle
