I had a '72 Yamaha DT250 Enduro, it was loads of fun.
Bought a '72 CT175 for the wife, she really liked it, easy to handle.

I had friends on Suzuki and Kawasaki of course, and we all went out and tried to kill ourselves in the Sand Dunes.
again, loads of fun

here is a fun video clip

My first bike was a 69 Honda CB350. When I bought it from my brother in law, it was stock.
I had another friend that sold me all the stuff from his CB 350 and this is how it came out

Back in 1973 one of the guys I went to school with wanted to buy a small motorcycle, and needed someone to ride with, so we both went and looked at new 350 Hondas. On May 6th, 1973 I bought a new carry over gold color 1972 350 Honda. He bought a Magenta 350. Mine was titled as a 1973. Honda get into trouble over that, and latter mailed me a check for $70,00. We rode together for awhile till he found other interests. I rode that bike for a year and a half, and decided I needed a bigger bike. I found a 1970 750 Honda late in 1974. (built 12/69). I had planned to keep the 350 but some guy heard I had 2 bikes, and was determined he was going to buy my 350, so I sold it to him. Rode the 750 to 65K miles till 1980 when I bought my first Gold Wing. A red 1976 model. Been riding Gold Wings ever since. Over 600,000 miles so far.

Third one came in a trade, did not have it long at all. Fast in a straight line, but ugly.
