Hello from France ! was created by Flyingpob

Hello,Happy to join the forum. Patrick AKA Flyingpob, Industry 4.0 engineer, also former skydiving master, and now restoring beauties ...The first to join the garage was a 75' Yamaha 125 DTF, exactly the same as the one i had when i was 16 ...Now 11 bikes in the garage, excluding my 1200 Vmax and my 800 DR Big single.I also love 3 cylinders from Kawasaki.I also ride enduro with a 525 KTM.

What should i add ? I will stop working in exactly one year, and plan of course to continue my restorations, and run my bikes because i have not rebuilt them to be covered of dust in a museum ! I prefer Bikes wearing their original paint and ride scars instead of looking like just new.
Next bike to arrive on october the 2nd : A 250 DT1 Yamaha.Long life to the forum and vintage trail lovers !

I have a 750 H2 in a corner of my head. I keep my eyes wide open to find one to restore, because i love restoration as much as riding once finished !
