    RD125DX

    This popped up on ebay on Tuesday evening and I couldn't resist as it is the exact model and colour of the bike I passed my test on back in 1978. These early DXs with spoke wheels and colour coded mudguards are few and far between.

    Very nice Mark, hope it live's up to your expectations.

    I have no affinity for my first bike...Kawasaki KH100. YEUCH!
    I do keep looking at KMX125's and thinking should I?
    But then I look at the GS and think, yeah maybe not.
    The KMX was cool at 17, not so much now.

    Mark that looks very nice. The air cooled Yams really are getting popular and you should have a nice classic that appreciates well. Just dont expect it to be as fast as you remembered, time dulls the reality especially with today's torquey bikes.

    Ooh just spotted the Maxi in the photograph, one of the few cars I have driven with a chocolate gearbox!!!!!

    Ill say it again very nice. Only need one addition, mirrors so you can see the two blue lines of smoke you leave everywhere. Just like the red arrows.

    Hi Mark how are you getting on with the little RD? I keep looking at these a simple classics, have you ridden it much.

    I visited this place the other day.
