My '75 performed great, only had one technical hitch with the new digital speedo (stop working 100k in).
I beat the lips off the old girl, reving to 12000 rpm down hill (55 mph), slipping the clutch like crazy, had consistent power from start to finish.

My teamate and I left Gatineau at around 4.45am saturday morning. It was a beautiful day, with lots of points of interest along the way, a couple of dirt road sections made it a bit of a challenge, but we managed to keep both bikes out of the rubarb. Lots and lots of holy s*1t curves, wide open on the fizz, I could feel the frame, swing arm and rims flexing lol.

Spent most of the time led down on the tank, with my feet up on the pass pegs, a great time had by all.

Arrived back in Gatineau at around 9pm, my teamate completed another 250km extra bonus section and arrived around 2am (nutter), my arse was too sore.

Originally off a 2008 Yz85, got it off ebay for $30. I had to lengthen the headpipe because peak power hit at around 11000 rpm. I'm currently shortening it coz it comes in at 7000, should start at 9000 that should get me around 8 or 9 horse and 60-65mph I'm hoping.
