    Things finally dried out enough yesterday to get out the little old 125. A fluid check, aired up tires and forks, a few kicks and another year began for the '83.

    A little jump...


    It ran great but felt labored at times. Wonder why???

    I have found that , before landing , it helps to think light thoughts .......Coors Light , Miller Lite , Michelob Light , etc. .

    K0, you’ve got more cool old toys than FAO Schwarz……

    Yeah, I don’t think Yamaha had Jumbo Vet’s in mind when choosing suspension rates for the 125…ha,ha.
    But….. the motor sounds tight!!!
    Make sure to bust that princess out during 125 days at the Cliff….

    Jumbo vet sizes.....eeeeeek. Is this what happens when we get old?
    Just who are our "plus size" suspension componants dealers for vintage machinery?

    Do hear a vintage/modern 125 day coming too the cliff ? I'll be on my soon to be completed 85 KX125 !

    Maybe pit can break out that 91 RM 125 !

    Hey KO, have you been using Barry Bonds trainer too? The 144 kit is looking better all the time.
