Now if Yamaha marketed the BW 350 like that it would still be in production.

Please stop posting this crap. You are going to force me to buy a slow bike with balloon tires.

Great stuff man.

Spartandude,

Thank you for stopping at two. I thought I was going to have to start counting on my fingers.

Moose DK,

The bike that you see is a 1987 BigWheel 350. It is similar in many respects to the new KTM 350sx. The BW had a series of top 10 finishes in Supercross in the late 80s before Michelin got the fat tires banned from AMA racing. That spelled the end of BigWheel development.

canoli,

Please don't refer to the videos as crap. I prefer the terms "tripe" or "rubbish." Or my favorite "useless drivel."

It looks so much better on a resume. Thanks for watching again.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Once again, a very entertaining video. I don't have to think much when I watch your videos. I like that!

Scott,

That is a nearly complete representation of the full spectrum of colors. I assume that it helps everybody remember which bike is theirs.

I'm imagine that some of the members can't be trusted with motors, lest they wander away from the home?

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Ah, I see how you could come to that conclusion. However, what the picture didn't show was the rebuilding of the engines for those off road machines going on to the right. Rest assured, they were soon back on the road with the rest off the O.G.
