Stuff to waste time watching over the off season

Post by Mikesbytes »

My first bike (fingernails do I remember correctly?) was a Kawasaki A1250r, which was an air cooled rotary valve 250cc twin cylinder drum brake two stroke. The brakes were shit and I even hit the tail light of a car at the lights, I got off my bike after hitting and smashing the tail light, got off my bike, walked over to give the driver my details and he drove off. I was so astonished that I just stood there, didn't even think to get the number plate. After that I replaced the shoes in the front brake.

The following video is about 3 250cc two strokes, one of which is the Yamaha RD250, I've owned 2 RD350's as second bikes and they were always fun to ride
