Yamaha


When I was growing up all I had was a Yamaha. My dad grew up riding a Yamaha and that what he put me on starting out. I first had a pw50 Yamaha that I started riding with training wheels. I soon took them off and started riding with my own power. When I got older my dad bought me a pw80 that I got really fast on so I thought. I never had a problem with any Yamaha I have ever owned.

In the past few years in the GNCC the factory Yamaha team has been strong. In 2007 two Yamaha riders were number two and three in the top 20 overall. In 2008 there were two in the top ten overall and in 2009 there was one rider in the top ten.

“A seven time GNCC ATV champion Barry Hawk Jr. made the transition from four wheels to two and never looked back, winning the GNCC Championship on an YZ250 in 2003. Always a threat for the championship Hawk finished in the runner up spot in 2005 and 2006.” Riding on a four stroke Barry looks to win another GNCC title for Yamaha.

“A four time AMA National Hare Scrambles Champion Jason made history in 2007, by taking the 2007 WR450F to its maiden win during the final rounds of the 2007 AMA National Hare Scrambles Championships and then followed it up by winning the 2008 AMA Eastern Hare Scrambles and AMA East vs. West Hare Scrambles Shoot-out Championships. Jason has established a winning tradition on the WR450F.” In 2010 he is riding the National Enduro’s and GNCC.

These two Yamaha riders are on the Factory Yamaha team and look to compete in 2010.

Josh Hill is a factory rider for Yamaha in the supercross. He is leading the way for Yamaha this year with 2nd overall so far in the supercross series. There are 4 Factory Yamaha riders in the top ten.

Tucker--

You have a long quote here (you didn't use the quote function in Blogger, by the way). Where did it come from? You must like to the source. Also, if you are quoting from a source, it's considered bad form to add links to that text from that source if they weren't already there.

I encourage you to start talking about some of your racing rituals or specific parts of bikes. Try different things with these posts; they're looking quite similar.
