Gotta love that "never raced" catch-all phrase. ;)

Yet you still go by YZ165 ... LOL!! The worst problem I ever had with a Yamaha was bad technical advice from a local shop. 25 years of Yamaha, and they are all still running, some with new owners, but I still see them out there.

35 years here. I would REALLY like to have another Dirtweek so we could start some new threads!

it would be cool but whole the hell still rides anymore! I bet over 50% from the last dirt week in 2005 doesn't ride anymore. and that's a conservative number my guess.

I still ride... poorly, but that isn't news. There is even a new Beta in my garage that needs to find it's way to Fox Valley for some proper trails to point it at :)
