1971 Yamaha 125 AT1-C Enduro. Got it used. It had electric start, and man was that a great tool while learning how to hill climb. Saved my butt more than once! I remember it had a compression release much like our WR's. Only thing was I thought it was like the ones on semi trucks, and used to use it to slow myself down on long downhills! Never seemed to hurt anything! I laugh my head off thinking about it now! My first "new" bike was a 1978 Yamaha DT-175 Enduro. Bought it when I was 15. Great little 2-stroke. Used to ride it to high school in the snow so I wouldn't have to ride the bus! Then came the '79 IT175 (a real upgrade over the DT in the dirt), followed by an '89 XT600. Wow, guess I was a Yamaha fan! I've only had two street bikes: Started with an '82 Kaw GPZ 550, and now currently ride an old '83 Honda V45 Sabre (cherry condition though). Wonder how my '00 WR4 would compare to the V45 in the 1/4 mile???
