Well believe it or not, but Gottfried Michels of Pami started tuning SR and XT's and then came the Priller Pegaso Engin with its 5 valve head, and he went modern, but that enging dropped out every other race so he took hold of the old Yam again... And then came the BMW modified engine, and it was rock solid, tunable to 75hp, and eventually he got the Job to build the engines for the Dakar "650's"

Visiting Pami
Every Adventure big or small
................*is* an Adventure all in all.
.........................So every day: Give in to the call
