    Welcome to the forum. Those were great days when the Yamaha RDs and Kawasaki triples rumbled the roads.

    I grew up with the old yamaha enduros, loved all Japanese 2 strokes. Best buddy rode the coolest Kaw 750 triple with 3 into 1 expansion chambers.
    Unbelievable!! Pretty much gave up riding as per wife and kids until finding
    this as a new "safe" hobby. Just now realizing that riding is as much fun as building. Still a kid at heart at 50. Grow old but don't give up you dreams
