MX Bob Bike History - Change 26
2005 Yamaha YZ125
Too Little Too Late

When Yamaha went to the aluminum frames on the two-strokes, the bikes lost nearly 10 pounds. They were already much lighter than a 450, so I really wanted to try a 125 or 250. If my previous bike came from a great mechanic, this one was the complete opposite. Iíve seen 50-year-old tractors with fewer makeshift repairs. The top-end was loose, the tires were bald, and the badly-worn chain was defying the laws of mechanics by staying on the saw tooth sprockets. It looked like it been stored outdoors.

Prior to making the purchase, this is how I must have seen the bike in my mind

This would have been a more accurate pre-purchase, mental image
