I had one of those Yamaha 250 scramblers (pic 16) in green. Not my first bike as I rode dirt bikes, but my first street motorcycle. That thing vibrated like you wouldn't believe. I'm not sure how far I would want to ride it now. Mark

Turned 16 in 1971 and my 1st bike was a 500 triple Kawasaki. Back then they were classified as a superbike and I lived thru that era of my life which totalled 5 - 500 triples and 2 - 750 triples. All 4 strokes after that.

"Lived through" is a good way to put it, as Kawi 750 triples were nicknamed "Widowmakers", But, the feeling of a triple with expansion chambers getting into the RPM range of the power band.....Wow.

I have had a couple of those vintage bikes, but don't miss them much any more. Beautiful to look at, but for riding anywhere, I prefer real brakes, etc... don't miss the widowmakers, they were all about power, I rode a couple, but they were too easy to get into trouble, LOL. Whew!
I had two high school buddies (brothers) with identical blue 500's... they used to replace tires, chains and sprockets every 4000 miles....

Owned a Yamaha RD400 back in the late 70's. Had proto pipes. You could barley hit 100 but it was super quick with 44hp and very light.
