Boy, you’re right about that- I’ll never wear it out. Can’t put the miles on like I used to.

When we were little, I had a (1969?) Yamaha Enduro 60 and my big bro had a ke100. Dad had a Bultaco. We rode all the time. When I was around 12 or 13, I got a 1976 Suzuki TS 125. I rode the wheels off it, until I bought my first car at 15. My Suzuki topped out at 68 mph. My big brother could almost keep up on his ke100. He ended up selling it and getting a ke175.
