    Picked up an early 70's Yamaha DT125 Enduro from a friend today......lusted after this bike back in the day......STILL excited to finally have one. :clap:freaky

    Current street registration/plate, two stroke with auto oil injection , electric start, light weight, newer tires, new seat....I threw in a Walmart battery and the old girl fired right up....fun/camp/Clowns bike to goof around on.

    That is a beautiful bike, Chris.


    The only requirement for a "Clowns of the West" bike (philosophically of course) is the question:

    "Will I still have a big grin on my face

    when the other clowns stomp on its burning,

    wrecked hulk in the campfire as they perform

    ancient native american fire dances...?"






    Keep the dream alive boys.

    I remember that like it was Saturday......well I kind of recall it....

    Finally Clown of the West rides.

    Thanks for the memories/nightmare Jimbo!

    I loved all the kids screaming in my front yard and the tour of my kitchen on your bike.

    Epic awesomeness Jim
    Happy Birthday Rob
    I thought about baking you a cake, but the thought died quickly
    so consider it a zero calorie cross fitter/dresser friendly cake, it would have been good though:evil

    It's good to see that Jim never let the idea die................

    I still think the kids screaming and running in the front yard and my wife running in the kitchen are priceless. :rofl

    My actual Bday was last Wednesday............the BIG 50!
