'82 Yamaha IT250 - My first "real" dirt bike. Took this photo the day I sold it.



I'm missing a few bikes. Had some Hondas and Kawasakis in there. I'll have to look through all my old photos.

'98 GasGas EC250 - A rare shot of me with BOTH wheels off the ground... At the same time.



Used up all that suspension on the landing.



'01 GasGas XC300 - Did I mention my bikes never look pretty?



'03 GasGas EC300 - This one doesn't look as hammered...Yet...



'96 Beta Alp - I suck at the feet-up stuff!



'73 Bultaco Alpina + Sherpa T = Sherpina - "Hey dummy, the brake is on the other side!"



'78 Bultaco Pursang - I need to grow a pair and go race some vintage MX



That's all for now.

It was a great bike, but in the pre-intardnet era the only choice for parts for a 10 year old Yamaha was the local $tealer. Prices were getting outrageous and delivery times longer until finally some parts were out of production.

Now the whole Evo/Vinduro racing has brought out the stashed away NOS and even has people making repro stuff despite iffy quality control. One thing I always liked about my Jap bikes was replacement parts fit right out of the box.

Wow...What a blast from the past! I can't remember the last time I saw a Bultaco thumb Some interesting bikes you've had there. I've always strongly admired Trials riders. That takes some serious talent!
