No pictures but it was a 1978 YZ125. Pretty clapped out but it was mine and led to a 8 year binge of MX racing using up another 5 Yammies. Bigsmile

Only one I've owned, '78 SR500.  Bought when I got back on a bike after a nearly 30 year hiatus.  The most fun motorbike I've had.  Sorry I had to give it up, but it wasn't getting ridden much when I got a bigger, multicylinder for my interstate commute.


My only Yamaha was the twin to yours.  Had a Supertrapp, 38mm Mikuni, and the high volume oil line.  Only got about 35mpg, but man did it sound good!

Bought it when I was stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas and in September of 1980 rode it home to Wasilla, Alaska.  8 days and 4700 miles.  Loved that bike!

Still got it;

My first was an 86 as well.  I called it the learning curve.   Rolleyes  Not as pretty as yours but it taught us about torque.  Smile  It also forced me to learn how to dismantle and perform surgery on a gas cap, taught me about moving the wires out of the way before replacing the oil filter housing, and instilled in me the value of short-shifting second gear.  That's not a good bike for a mechanically challenged person unless it's in REALLY good condition.  But it sure was cause for a lot of giggles.

My first Yamaha was actually my 3rd bike. A 1986 Radian 600 that I bought brand new in 1986 after my Interceptor 500 was stolen.

Okay, I'll play.

My first Yamaha and my first new bike. My god, look at the hair on that squid.

Since then I've had a few, but they all pale in comparison to my current Yamaha.

A 100,000 miles and a lifetime of memories on that bike with more to come.

the above opinion is simply that of an average middle aged hick with one too many brain injuries... or, don't take it too serious.
