I was thinking of renting out advertising space.



Someone once did compare it to a Coleman camp stove with wheels and handlebars.



Just another memeber of "the fleet". Which includes: A DT1, a CL350, a CB350, a KZ750, CR500, DT1MX, XL250, Honda Motowheel..etc..etc...

Wow, you're good.



Now what was a YSD1 smart guy?

Man, maybe we should have an MO Schutzenfest? I can bring my FN49 in 7.92 x 57 with the BAR mag. Ba-Boom! Like shootin' artillery.



Or better yet, my new 6" .50 S&W

Ha! Fox field.....I landed a 172 there a few times (very poorly and fortunately under close adult supervision). Yup, godforsaken is an apt description.

For fun, try some landings at El Mirage with no flaps.



In a 150, you'll feel like you're in a speeding beer can.



Even with the extra Valmoble weight.

Take away the subscription requirement and watch the demographic suddenly shift. I think is has something to do with the everything-on-the-internet-should-be-free-regardless-of-the-effort-required mindset.



Looks like MO is stuck with the older-guys-with-large-disposable-incomes-and-eager-to-spend-it demographic. Sorry.



Barbara Bush is hot, hot, hot, and Jenna isn't too bad either.

the old honda spada (vt250) is a great bike, 250 vtwin, naked, with a reasonably comfy position for a little bike. i think maybe a sv650 is a big version of this but even tho its old i like the styling. if you could get a bike with 5-700ccs of vtwin power in a compct spada like frame that would be a great bike for around town. they looked good, a bit like a modern monster but because it would be ahonda it would be heaps cheaper and easier to keep on the road. anyway i might bu talking about an sv650 bu never having ridden one im not sure.

You've got me there cuddy. I remember the YDS1, and even the rotary valve YDS1R, but you'll have to clue me in on the YSD1. VWW

Default Re: Wow! You are Old School!

The late 60's models were Sherpa's The Sherpa "S" became the Pursang and the Sherpa "T" became the Alpina.



A friend of my dad ran the Bultaco shop in Auburn in the 60's and 70's and my dad had a 250 Matador he enduro'd before I got my license. Then we turned it into a psudo cafe` racer for me to ride. Nothing like turning up at your girlfriends house for a date with a pop bottle full of Blend-zal in your pocket.....



I met a lot of cool people from hanging out there, including Jim Pomeroy, and Ake Jonnson and Bengt Aaberg from the Trans Am series.

I think Bultaco was the equivilent of the modern day Buell or Britten. I think senor` Bulto built them in his shed....LOL

It was either 100 or a 125 2 stroke twin street bike.
