    Yeah, even the ones with knobbies.

    Here's a few of mine to start, most of which I still own.

    A buddy of mine gave the first two of these to me. He was going to haul them to the junkyard if I didn't take them.
    The RM250 I got from a guy I used to work with many years ago.
    I did "Backyard Restorations" on all of them.

    1977 Yamaha IT400

    1985 Yamaha TT600

    I've had this since 1984

    1977 Suzuki RM250
    Got this one for free too.
    Sold many years ago. Wish I'd kept it...

    That's it for now.

    Yep. I had mine taped to keep from rubbing off the paint. I never raced it, but I switched to Honda with a 1980 CR125 and raced the crap out of it. I loved that bike and for its time, it was an ass kicker.

    Gawd, that's Memory Lane. My first favorite dirt bike was a Yamaha DT-1. I didn't have the good fortune to own one, but got to ride one for a week and fell in love. So forgiving it made average riders look good. I got all the way up to average-looking.

    Okay, tell us ! I can't make heads or tails out of the engine except for the big supercharger up front -- and I'm not sure of that!
