Having one of the first ones was a truly frustrating experience. Nobody knew all the restrictors it had in it and there was no internet to get the information from. Imagine buying a fancy new model and it taking a couple months to get it to run properly.

Not totally on topic....but Motocross Action mag ( Feb) has a good article/interview w/ Lee McCollum of Suzuki. Some interesting history on team Yellow.

I was raised just off HWY 126 in Valencia during the 80's.
