The rubber man can! Nice sports story & well written. Be interesting to see what happens next year Rory - be a good documentary. I sence passion here (ying-ying).

Thanks Scott. Yeah, I raced 125s off and on for 9 seasons. Last night at the banquet I won next season's club membership. The passion went from motocross right in to my '81 LC. Nine seasons on the LC with some (3) TZ250 racing and 3 RZ500s both on the street and racing.

Thanks guys.

Peter, no, I'm not Steve McQueen.

David, yes, an absolute blast.

Jon, the legs were burning on the stairs Mon/Tues/Wed/Thurs...lots of Advil. Now, as of today, I'm doing the PTSD awareness training. 22 push ups for 22 days. 22422. Only did 5 in a row on the 1st attempt. You have to do 22/day, any number at a time until you reach 22.

Dana, Flickr has been downloaded. Working on that still.

Evans, keeping the rubber side down. My 2nd kick at the can.

That's a good story. I had the liquid 1981 YZ125. That was my favorite bike. Thin and really light. In 1993 I picked up a used 1989 Suzuki RM125 and went out to ride with a bunch of friends. What I remember from that day was how little horsepower those 125 MXers have. You have to keep those things pinned and constantly shift if you want to keep from bogging. My clutch hand was numb after 15 minutes of play riding! At 50+ I think old 125's are nice to look at but I'd rather drive a open-class bike at this point. You can start in 3rd and shift about 3 times a lap. You did really well to run out front and stay upright!

I remember those ads. Thanks for sharing. I never considered the YZ back in the day.
