Hi, I'm 4eyes and I'm an enduroholic. ;)

I am a mid-fifties, disabled tool and die maker, who grew up on Honda XLs (after the Z50 I got for my eighth birthday).
I had a prolonged pause from two-wheeled fun that ended around three years ago. Since then I have been working on, and riding a '72 Yamaha R5.
The main reason that I am here is to learn the quirks of the '75 Yamaha DT 250 that I bought yesterday. Yay2
Parts sources would be a great help.

I learned about this site from some of the nuts on Do The Ton.

I'm getting off my behind...good Enduro everyone, and I am an Enduroholic. My wandering eye looks in every and all spot in my work driving travels, searching for enduros I can scavenge within my self imposed, stupid dollar cap. I have been lurking behind the couch checking out the progress on all working so hard on this new Enduro website & forum and am ready to profess my love for all enduros here as well! The aired out DT1 is the one that started my sickness, and the CT2 is my current rider in a stable of 3. Just moved to the Idaho panhandle after 48 years of California living and just love it here.

Welcome! Glad to see the word is getting out. Tim, from Do The Ton is a member here.

Less of the customs here, but all are welcome if enduro based (orMX, or IT, . . .)

Post up pics and questions on your bike. A good model and lots of answers here. Check out our download section.

Apex, old friend! Welcome!

Lots of the old gang are here. Always room for more. Thanks for the typo catch in the specs section. It should be correct now.

Whereabouts in the panhandle? I was just on the Idaho/norther Oregon border riding this past few days on my '78 DT400 - lots of good riding over there. Maybe we can coordinate on a NW rEnduroRIDE!

I'm in Coeur d'Alene, so from where you were maybe a 3-3.5 hour drive. I'll need to get my DT1B running to keep up with your DT400 on the pavement, my 175's just aren't set up for high speed stuff. Yeah, I think a EnduroFest in the NW would be great!!

Cool! I get to Spokane occasionally for work. We have another fellow in Lewisron, and you need to thi k about coming down to Hodaka Days the end of June.

We will need to put some ideas together because a NW ride would be reallyfun.
On the ride this past weekend, your 175 would have been just fine. The biggest issue was fuel capacity. You might think about options there.
Plus, I have other bikes . . .

Born in South Dakota in '51. Been doin the Yamaha thing since '65, although I took 20 yrs off to do the family thing. Currently have 5 enduros, and last nite I picked up an IT175 but can't figure out which year it is. I tried to post pics of it here but haven't figured out how to do it.

Hi Ralph!

Take a look down in the bottom sections on how to use the Forum. There are two good "how to" threads on posting pictures here. It is a tad bit different than some other software, but seems to work for us. The biggest issue is if you upload to here (as opposed to link to a photo server like Photobucket) the file size needs to be less than 2 meg. That works out to about a 1024x768 photo.

It is a real pain, but a limit from our hosting company. Been trying to address that for awhile, but no success yet.

Welcome to the site and we look forward to hearing more about your projects.

We don't have the IT VIN numbers collected, but it certainly is a possibility going forward.
