Make 'em jealous! What did you just get?

Recommended Posts

Afternoon all :) 

From my trip down to the coast, just 'happened' upon one of my old modelling haunts :)

Happy as poo... I never built the RG 250 in my stupid yufe days and the 370 is the newest release with the natty yellow heritage finish.

Yes I knooooooow they aren't tanks 

and yes I knooooooow they aren't wingy things either, but believe it it or not, there are other modelling subjects out there :)

Owned a de-restricted RG125 Gamma that was great fun(the 12 bhp restricted boys never realised:evil:)and never owned a 250 Gamma

but a mate did have a 350 YamaGamma that was an absolute riot.

Cool Miggers. My last small size bike was an RZ 500 (Same as an RD over there). Was an absolute dog driving it around town but when you opened the throttle it just exploded (so obviously you always had to drive it fast) :) The only bike that ever scared me :)

Hoo yeah,YamaGamma matey swapped that for an RG 500 Squidgejuki,now that was good fun(front wheel up and down like a lady of the night's "smalls")

so I kinda know where you're  coming from Steve with that 500 Yam.

They were supposed to be a bit wilder than the 500 Suz.

I kinda got the feeling Miggers that there was a LOT of Sake involved in designing that engine. :)

It had an extremely light frame as well, and below 5000 revs the gearbox was like a tractors, but as soon as you revved it up it would just lift the front through all the gears if you let it... 

Many hours of fun indeed :)

Can't beat a good pipey two stroke(YamDT/YZ/IT fan meself)

The old Kwacker Z1 used to be a bit like that though,below 5 grand, you'd let your granny go to the shops on it,but give it a mitt full and woo-hoo, we're off.

All I will say is dedicate an uniterrupted hour and a half of your life to enjoy it all. Then watch the bonus features another evening :)
