So, I'm in this crazy sort, clean, simplify, and throw away mood lately. Today was my closet and started my office. I found an old album that had a few pics. I'm still missing a whole bunch from when I was a kid.
Well, here's my first "Big Bike".
Worked my a$$ off for that thing! Tobacco, farm, paper route, shoveling driveways, racking leaves, whatever it took to make a dollar! I always dreamed of a Bell Moto III helmet, but settled for a K-Mart open face special. I dreamed of Scott MX boots, but settled for workboots. I did have the Scott goggles with the "Darth Vader" face shield attachment. I did have a kidney belt ...
I still vividly remember the first pair of MX pants I bought for my first race.
I moved up from a '74 RM100 (my first bike) to a '78 YZ125 (sleeved to 100) then this and then moved to a '80 CR250R (and still have the Fox AirShox in the garage right now).
Sorry, just having a great touching moment with some great memories at the "sand pits", "Sportsman's Club", MX338 ... Being on a bike was the only time I was truly happy and able to forget the shietty life growing up! I can't believe how this is effecting me right now! I must say the love of motorcycles helped me get through life and where I'm at today!!!!!
