Jeepers...a YB125!!!! When we all had 50's, one mate scored one of those and although he wasn't 18 he just used it on a permanent basis. For us, used to 50's, that thing was awesome! So much grunt.  ;D

My first bike was a Kawa AE 50cc with an AR 80cc header kit and Wildcat expansion pipe. Man did that bike fly. I bought the bike for R200.00 from the next door neighbour as scrap. My dad and I rebuilt the bike from scratch.
Previous bikes: Yamaha Thunderace 1000; Yamaha XT 350; Kawazaki AE 50

People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

My third bike , and yes , that was my full riding gear - boots and all  ::)
Just came across your 3rd bike. My first was a Suzuki AC 50; registration TBC 147, must have been about 1972. For anyone interested, that was a Tzaneen registration.

Eish boet, there where only about 5 or six AC 50,s in town those days, we should know each other . You recognise my 350 ?

Hier is my eerste baaik wat ek met my eie geld gekoop het! Het hom tweedehands by Mean Machine, Menlyn, gekoop in 1995 vir R22 500 as ek reg onthou. Was dit dalk 'n Willehond se baaik? Ek het hom weer in Feb 1999 uit die hand aan 'n mnr André Janse van Rensburg van La Montagne verkoop. Is hy dalk 'n Willehond?

Ek het baie lekker met hom gery - ook 'n heelpaar verpaaie van Pretoria af, o.a. Kosibaai, Oos-Vrystaat, Oos-Transvaal, Upington, ens. My bagasie was sommer so in my voetslaan rugsak op die rug. Daai Kenda noblie-agterband was 'n riller op 'n nat teerpad >:D Die petroltenk het 'n klein lekkasie gehad, wat waarskynlik die rede was hoekom die vorige eienaar van die baaik ontslae geraak het. Ek het die lekplek laat toe "braze" en toe was die wêreld weer reg :ricky:
2-wiel geskiedenis sedert 1995: Kawasaki KLE 500, Suzuki GSX750F en Triumph Tiger 955i. Het almal verkoop, sonder dat ek myself en/of die fiets breek gery het.

Goeie tye en bakgat memories :thumleft:. Daai kleurskema gee nogal die era weg :biggrin: Amper soos daai jare wat die girls mos al die shocking groen/geel/pienk opgerolde kousies gedra het, sommer so 3 verskillende kleure bo-oor mekaar!

Ha-ha .... ! Ja, ek glo nie die rooi en groen sal vandag 'n indruk op my maak nie :biggrin: Die "shock boots" was ook groen soos die sitplek, maar hulle was later so stukkend gewees dat ek besluit het om hulle te laat vervang. Maar toe gaan ek maar eerder vir swart!

My 1985 Yamaha XT200 - my dad bought it for me when I was 17 in 1994 for R500 - looked like shit but ran well - we stripped it down and repainted it to look like this

Ek was Std. 5 toe kry ek n nuwe RM80.
Ons het hom dadelik van Suzuki Country na die plot toe gevat.
Ek het nie geweet van n power band nie, toe daai ding inskop to m@#r ek amper agter oor.
Later Oudtshoorn toe getrek, daar kon ons net agter die hospitaal gaan ry het.
Die bike het so geraas dat die mense in die omgewing altyd die polisie gebel het.
Ons get opgejaag na die dorp se Water Reservoir, en dit was n gesukkel.
Begin onder flat out in sesde rat en eindig op in eerste rat net net bo.
Daar was ons redelik veilig.

Have one of these lying in my garage that I need to get around to rebuilding
Where are my shorts??

Ook eers op 42 my eerste fiets gekry, tweedehands met 800km op! Nou, ses jaar later, steeds een groot plesier!

Bought my first bike second hand for R250 cash in 1987. Suzuki PE175 with no papers. It had a vicious 2stroke power band, and it was a lot of fun!
In a world full of people, only some want to fly... Isn't that crazy?
