    Thanks! I wasn't riding in most of the 80's and it sounds like the Yamaha wouldn't have been on my list anyway! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    I never had one of these puppies but my '85 YZ's were terrible. My '88 YZ125 and YZ250 were good bikes though. The early eighties were not the best time for Yamaha.

    Very few Mosickles are painful to look at, this is one of them. They should have called this model OUCH instead of OW.

    I remember the evening before the 82 Daytona SX, Jeff Hicks decided he wanted his OUCH to be a couple pounds lighter. Bevo had to change out all that crap and the triple clamps to so his rider would get lapped on an air cooler instead of the water cooler.B)



    The fact that Ricky Johnson used this thing to take Donny Hanson down to the final moto at Lakewood, Colorado for the championship is amazing ! The Hondas RC's were far ahead of the competition in this era.


    I can remember riding with Broc a few times practicing at Saddleback and at nationals when some really strange rear end kicks and flying W saves were on order. Pretty strange for a super smooth rider like him.

    Thanks for the post once again Teybly, they are a very nice addition.

    My God am I glad I raced when bikes were slow, tracks had bumps,and motorcycles sounded like music....

    Thanks Tom, I love all your old pics.

    Man it is funny seeing those USD forks attached to a drum brake. It just does not look right.
