Anyone remember these ads? I was thinking it was a 70's Suzuki ad for the RM's. I had a 78 RM80. My first 2stroke. But looking at my thread title, could it have been a YZ ad? Yellow Zonkers. YZ? Hopefully one of you vintage faithfulls can post a picture of the magazine ad. Sure would bring back memories.

I thought MXA used that in 1974 regarding the Yamaha MX100?

Found it. Memory not so good, it was Dirt Bike Magazine. Probably Rick Sieman created the headlines.

The question is did Suzuki have to pay Screaming Yellow Zonkers to use the words "Screaming Yellow Zonkers" in the RM ad?
