    And that, is exactly what I want to ride in Michigan this year for the Rites of Spring. Pure vintage sweetness.

    I had a 72 125 Enduro and then a 74 250 when I was in high school. Would love to have them again.

    My dad bought a brand new 360 Enduro I think it was a '71; I loved that bike so much that before I bought my TW I was actually considering buying one. I found a couple of '74's and went to test ride the one nearest to me. I had forgotten how much work those bikes are to kick over. Suddenly, I realized that I was too old to work that hard. As a kid, if I wanted to ride my dad's motorcycle, I was welcome to if I could get it started. Back then, I was determined. That bike had a nasty kick back but I learned to keep my leg limber in anticipation. I remember compared to our other old bikes, I could hardly keep that 360 on the ground. I still love those old Yamaha Enduros and if Yamaha ever makes a retro Enduro I think I might be the first in line. Riding that '74 or should I say starting that '74 is what helped me make the decision to purchase my 2013 TW.

    Thing I liked most about those old air cooled two stokes? They where so easy to work on! My 76 RM-125 took about 1 1/2 hours to do a complete top end job and thats decoking the head too.

    Maybe that's why I like the TW so much! My first dirt bike was a 1969 Yamaha 125 Enduro. I loved that thing and even rode it in some Trials events.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
