"Most" of the younger people posting on ADV just know what they have read about the early MX type motorcycles.

That said, we just got used to what the bikes did and rode accordingly.
If you know that if you slap a bull, it's gonna come after you, you kinda know how to get away with it....
Sometimes the Bull surprises us....
I survived the TM400!!
