My brother and I got new 250's in '79. I got the RM he got a YZ. The YZ is faster in a straight line drag race if you have good traction. In loose stuff the RM can stay with it. We both eventually got Fox Airshox but I think my RM was better in the whoops. They were equal handling-wise, the RM was too tall and Yamaha didn't figure out proper frame geometry until 1980. We used to almost kill each other on those things.

That's a great bike. I'd choose that over a 79 Rm in a heart beat

It’s so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don’t say it.
