Meet Dorothy...

  1. I just bought a 1985 Yamaha DT200 Dirt Bike.



    She's the perfect height for me, only 108kg and with 33hp pumping out of a llittle 2-stroke engine I'm pretty sure she'll hunt. The $500 price tag was too good to refuse!!

    This should be fun!
  2. Very nice :) I'll have to come for a paddock thrash sometime! :grin:
  3. I'm thinking of getting a chook chaser too - just to get all the "high spirits" out of my system before I hit the roads...
  4. Top looking machine for the price! Well done.

  5. Nice for a bit of fun, i used to have a dt 175 when i was like 16, there are great fun.
  6. I also had a DT175 one time, did heaps of work for me.
    Had a gravity defying front wheel too! :grin:

  7. lol aint they all.
  8. Is that the liquid cooled one? I rode one years ago, had heeaps of grunt right thru the range, no peakiness at all. And the engine was turbine smooth. I'm very jealous, you got yourself a real bargain there, enjoy! :cool:
  9. Maybe it's cos I have kids but when I read the topic I thought of Dorothy the Dinosaur. :oops:

    Anyhoo. Cheers on the two stroke. Nothing like the buzzy little buggers, the smell, the sound and the way they deliver power. Enjoy you lucky dawg. :cool:
  10. that is a top bike by the looks of ya pics :)
    well done!

    i started on a YZ about that vintage..maybe a few years earlier now i think about it..
    but i ended up in love with TT's by the time i got my license.
    Yammies dominated my bike riding for the first 15 or so years.

    enjoy pink500! :cool:
  11. Cheers everyone!
    davesta: yes, it's the liquid cooled one.
    I haven't had a chance to ride it yet, except up and down the driveway, but by the looks of things I'm gonna have a whole heap of fun next weekend when I have a go at the trails on my friends property. :grin:
    I'll let you know how it goes..
