Added reply in a thread Too bad you can't copyright a color (Kawi green) 12/8/2019 7:20 PM

When we rode for Team Green, my Dad would stripe our Bell helmets with a 60's Volkswagen green that was a dead ringer. We own a body shop, so he had paint color books going back to the early 50's and it was easy to color match stuff. That shade of green ... more »

Added reply in a thread 1986 Suzuki RM80, RM125, and RM250 Brochures 12/8/2019 6:58 PM

I test rode the 80 (I had just turned 12), and it was great compared to what they were before. But having already spent a couple years on KX 80's before that, it still had a ways to go. I will say though that was my first experience with excellent cornering ... more »

In 2014, Lechien was at Glen Helen with the Maxima truck setting up their display. He was visiting with a few of us folks, when someone brought up training in his day vs today. He stated his problem started when he was really young, because at such a ... more »

Nailed it. Saw a few "red" KX 80"s at Ponca in 84.....and it was an ugly red at that.

Probably gonna get bashed for this....... The best 125 was one ridden by Stew in his prime. Just watched some vids of him from 02-04, damn. Truly special.....

He's just a kid, and he is gonna do kid stuff. However, being tossed into the deep end would overwhelm damn near anybody, I think he will probably be ok. He has one of the sports best gigs, and he is used to being on a big stage already. He obviously ... more »

The moment reality hit me about being an old guy was the day I moved my son into his dorm at college. Had to head over to sign some papers on his enrollment, and looked around all these "kids" moving in every direction getting their new lives in order. ... more »

I agree with you on this, she has always had an incredible voice. Their performance on this night with Jason, the backing choir, was one of the best of their career. If you were ever gonna impress Plant, Page, and Jones, this to me would be the benchmark. ... more »

I just got into reading this thread, and I had the same thoughts as yourself. The current YZ 125, 250 platform have paid for themselves well over a decade ago. I'd put the 125 at 4299, 250 at 4899, and watch them fly out the doors. Offer a good contingency ... more »

We always had the GNC race at Ponca during November. It was what qualified you to go to the GNC Finals at the Astrodome in the spring of the next year. That race always felt odd to me because back then the Ponca track was only used for the NMA Grands, ... more »
