Rode one once when I was 6, just a friends old suzuki 50. Never really wanted one until my neighbor got a pw80 when we were 11. Paid for half of my TTR90 when I was 12. Rode it in my 1 acre backyard. Been riding and racing ever since.

8 and it was a Rupp, any of you gezzers remember Rupp's, Im sure there are many.

It was more or less a trail bike, or what every your imagination can think of.

      Looking to buy a used Beta 2017 500 RRS from outside California.  Can I plate (Register with CA DMV) the bike in CA?  If so what is the best way?  Don't have the money to put down for a new bike from a Dealer in CA.  Any help or sugguestions would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

      This continues to be my favorite trail/race weapon!! In our Eastern tight woods, power is not King, handling is. And this thing outhandles them all!!!!
