I know this site is dedicated the the badass Wolverine, but I know most of us have had many different toys over the years. If you have any pics lets see em and hear a little bit about what they were

This is my first, a 87 Kawasaki KDX 80 that I got for my 9th birthday and rode clear up till I was a freshman in high school

First foray onto 4 wheels with an 04 YFZ 450 Special Edition. Damn, that was one mean machine!

Oh boy I've had a few toys over the years, my first atv was a Suzuki LT80, then a Yamaha Wolverine 350 which I dont have pictures of. Later down the road I had an 06 Arctic Cat 700 but sold right away I DID not like that machine. The rest I do I believe. 10264490_601472924296_7206373115296318811_n.jpg Still miss this one, my 03 Z400 20077_510403348456_5823284_n.jpg My Klx143 207771_502879012286_3124_n.jpg My 06 LTR450R 1930377_62931390363_3886_n.jpg My Rhino 180684_516752579546_3402162_n.jpg I had a nice CRF100 for a while 154262_515455054796_7343061_n.jpg My trusty and still sad about it being gone Grizzly 550 11800253_647621097986_3370312997774774714_n.jpg And my newest toy, the Wolverine

I hear you about still missing some of em. I'm still regretting the YZ go because I was in a situation where I didn't need the extra money, but some dude at work offered me cash without even seeing it so I sold it to him. The YFZ was just a badass machine that I loved riding. I sold it back in 09 when all my buddies and I were riding the 4x4s so I had the Rancher out all the time and that one just sat. Plus I was one of the many who was left without a job in 09 so I had to let something go, and I knew I'd get more use out of the Honda than I would that.

Yeah many regrets now, back then I was just drooling over something else and thinking ahead about as far as next monday. Now I wish I could have back at least one sport quad and my Grizzly but hey thats just talk now its to late. I would killll to have back my Z400 and just trail ride it now, no more track time for this crippled man.

image.jpg my last bike, I miss those days. Side by sides are fun but it's no comparison to riding on a perfectly groomed mx track. Although they are a lot easier on the body!

Agreed Axo! I still drool and would love to get me a 250F just for some spirited trail riding. Nothing beats ripping through the woods on a MX bike. Good looking Honda you had.

Ha! I hated trail riding on a mx bike. But I always ran my suspension so stiff you had to drop 30 feet outta the air to get it to move. Maybe that had something to do with it, lol.

We had a 200x as well, and a 250sx.. That was one badd ass three wheeler.
One day the kick start gear broke inside the motor on my 200x and when we went in the motor to fix it we (my buddies and i) decided to do it up right so we had the cylinder bored .30 over and put a high compression piston and rings in it. Compression was so high it would about throw you back off the kick starter. It spark knocked so bad i had to buy gas at our local airport and ran 100 octane in it. Lots of fun.

Yamaha rider from way back. Doing what my 225DX did best, endless wheelies! Also breaking in a brand new 2012 700 Grizzly. I never dreamed that little mud hole was that deep. And Grizzlies at work, 700 and 550.

How do you guys get pics that are on film onto digital? Do you just use a scanner? All my good pics are on film.
The one of my first KDX I just laid the picture on the desk and took a picture of it with my phone. But to do it right, a scanner would be needed.

Axo938....Yes, the older ones I scanned years ago and burned them off onto CD. Want to do it quicker? Get your old photos out and use your digital camera or smartphone and take a picture of the photo. You can get a decent shot. Just play around with the flash and focus and see what looks best. :cool:
