I'd love to ride them again too, on a YZ125X.  Don't get me wrong, had a blast on the 450, but my gosh it's got a lot of power.  Climbing the slippery hills was effortless on the 450 though, likely would've been more work on a 125X.  I guess there's no perfect bike.

Remember the old triple triple triple Yammie 2-smokes I found deals on last winter? 

The first was a 2001 Yamaha SRX 700, the second, a 2002 Yamaha SRX 700.

The 2001 and 2002 model years are the most highly sought after. 

I sold them, for a nice profit.  To a collector from Quebec, Canada.  They'll likely not ever be ridden again.  :'(

I said goodbye to them when I delivered the part way to the buyer near Cleveland, Ohio.

I'll miss the noise and power they made, but I was just simply too long to ever get comfortable on them.

It's a crime for t-smokes to be retired, it's a crime for them to be made collector items but some part of me understands.

I agree, the buyers brother, who lives in Maine, met me in Cleveland, I asked what the brother was going to do with them as the parts are worth a fortune, actually more than the machines themselves.  Although I made a nice profit, I was hoping the buyer would not be parting them out.  He said, they'd just be going in his collector barn with all of his other stuff. 

I asked what kinds of other stuff he had, being nosy.

Brother said he had an original Twin Turbo Toyota Supra, 1989 or 1990,  I can't recall which year, with 1,000 miles on it  :imaposer:

Toyota of Japan offered him $200,000 for it and he declined their offer. 

I'm going to miss these blue devils, I wish I had the room to store them.

I ended up liking the area east of Cleveland so much that after I met the buyers brother, I spent the day exploring and booked a room.

Here are some pics from my time there.

These were taken around Geneva on the Lake, Ohio and Geneva, Ohio.
