Black and yellow model 81 xt550

Sorry - no pix, but when I was in college (1992) I got a 1981 xt550 to get around on. Worked all summer to pay the $1000. My parents always hated bikes so I was on my own - this was my 3rd that I worked for and got on my own. The XT cost me more than my 1st two combind! I rode the hell out of it for 10 years. It was one tuff SOB. In 2002 I killed it and replaced it with a 99 LC4 640e - another big ol street leagal dirt bike. Saw a pix of the old the XT in a stack of college photos and it took me back to a very fun time in life. Took my wife for a ride on it before we even started dating. Put a milk crate on the back and loaded it up with camping gear. I graduated on saturday and hauled it down to FL sunday to start work on monday. I fit everything I owned - including the XT in my car and on 4x8 flat bed former pop up frame. The pix I found was of it all loaded up and ready to leave college.

I know long but that bike was special to us.
