New member to the family stable....

I wanted to introduce the newest member to our family stable.
He arrived earlier this afternoon and comes to us with 24,743 original miles.
Hes a 76 Suzuki 185 dirt/street bike that well be using on our property and for the grandkids to learn to ride on.
With a grand total of $250 invested, I think we did good, what do you all say?

12.75 acres of dirt?

Looks like that thing is going to be a blast. I wonder how much riding the youngsters will get when you're on it all the time.

if your wife or granddaughter is going to ride it
take down the swimming pool first.
Ive seen the videos. Somehow a pool of water is a motorcycle magnet.

Sounds like great family fun. My son's learned on a similar bike and still talk today, 30 years late, how much fun it is. Our little dirt bike turned our to be a great family memory.
