    The oldest I could find, CX500T, will have to get serious and find something older.

    Guys who give the finger in the 9th class picture usually go on to be trouble makers... bike pictures from 12th grade, Phil on his 69 Yamaha AT1 125 Enduro, me on my 69 Honda CL450....I got good at doing wheelies scan0447.jpg

    Yep, by 12th grade I had that wheelie thing down. Last day of school, high school parking lot...At least I was wearing a helmet which became law in PA around 1968/69. This was June of 1970. 62328_1490060783233_919079_n.jpg

    That . . . . my friend . . . . is how you ride a deer out of the woods and back to camp. After gutting, you split the rib cage to the neck, slide your carcass over the bike like it's doing the riding, then jump on it's back and motor your way home.
    If you hunt in the mountains, and you've drug deer and elk for miles back to a road your truck can access .... only then will you understand the wisdom of such technique.

    It's VERY surprising for me to see this pic here because I did the same thing, many times, on the same bike (mine was yellow). In fact, there were several times that I would happen upon hunters in Idaho that paid me to get their deer back to their camp for them.

    Love it. Maybe we will meet next summer over at the Flathead. I ride a 2001 Dakar so probably won't be able to keep up but there are a lot of nice rides over there. Then when we have had enough of that it will be time to take the Jet Boat out on the water. Like you, I am closed down for the winter.

    My 3rd bike Honda S90 around 1971, no photos of my first 2 Honda S50 and S65. Then later on #323 at Barbers Vintage weekend a few years ago. Now in my 60's and still racing MX which is really fun, but man this old Honda 90 was also a lot of fun...…..
