I know I'm a newbie but I got a flashback to my 1st bike today. It was a 1971 Yamaha Mini Euduro 60. All that was around in those days for a 10 year old was the Honda trails and this bike rode circles around them.

1971 Bronco 50cc 2 stroke. French made I think. Had a 4 speed trans and a clutch. It's the only one I have ever seen... I'll post a pic if I can find one.

My first Yamaha was a 1976 YZ 125, with the big "juice reservoirs" atop the fork legs. I say juice reservoir cuz the long-standing joke in our family is telling childhood friend Rick that we stored orange juice there, and he would always try to drink some on long hot rides.

"Nope, you're not putting your mouth on the right drink hole. Try again."

For years this gullible kid tried to refresh his dry mouth on hot trail rides.

It was my moms! I couldn't touch the ground, but I could twist the throttle and reach the pegs. I ripped off the turn signals and mirrors crashing, but the rest is history.

Literally, thx Mom!

My first bike was a 1968 Trail 50 when I was 5. Putted around on that for years. But my first REAL bike that changed my life was a new 1980 YZ80 when I was 12. Let the games begin :thumbsup:

My dad had the 73 in rootbeer brown. My fondest memory of that Thumpin' pinger was it biting you when you didn't kick it all the way through. That kickstart lever would snap back and nail you!

1974 Yamaha GTMX 80 I can't remember how many times my dad made me ride that thing to the top of Alamo mountain. I did ride it at Indian Dunes twice!

I think I was 14 (early 80's), saved up $200 and bought the 1st thing I could afford - A 1974 Suzuki TM400. Luckily it only ran at half power or I might be dead, I was always pushing it home or riding home with a broken part in my hand.
