OK, I'll bite...this was my first ride, a Yamaha LT2 100 Enduro.
In the summer of '75 I was 16 years old and had done quite a bit of mods to the bike. I had taken off things like the headlight to lighten the load and replaced the front fender with a plastic motocross type fender. Knobby tires, a high compression piston and cylinder head, a "Wisperin' Smith" expansion chamber plus a large rear sprocket gave the bike some amazing zip!
This pic was taken along the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River not far from Slumgullion Pass in Colorado by my mom. My family took summer vacations there to get away from the Texas heat and humidity. This paricular summer, my brother and I mounted the bike onto a Jeep Grand Cherokee with a bumper carrier. We then drove the 1,100 miles (1800 km) from Baytown, Texas to Lake City, Colorado. The rest of the family flew.
