"Most" of the younger people posting on ADV just know what they have read about the early MX type motorcycles.
They were a handful to ride, but that's all we had and didn't know any better.
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!!
Absolutely! Also some other fun things (common among all makes back in the day) like brakes going away after a creek crossing, fouled plugs, dirty or water intruded points, throwing or breaking chains and my all time favorite, throttle stuck wide open.
