In 1980 I bought a 1979 XT500, my first true dual sport.
One of my favorite local places to ride was Rancho Palos Verdes, back then you could sneak around the hills and canyons. I dont think you could get into much dirt today, I was checking it out on Google, the Radar site at the top of the hill is surrounded by high dollar homes now. Alot happens in 32 years. I wish I still had that 500, sold it in 1985......
