Life is short, Occasionally Bend the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.


Life may not to be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance

Just to expand on It's family tree


"The history of Yamaha dirt bikes began way back before you were just a twinkle in your ol' mans eye. The Yamaha Corporation was founded in 1887 by Torakusu Yamaha. They originally built pianos, then over the years branched out into a wide range of products including all types of electronics, musical instruments, computer products, home appliances and even robotics. To this day you can still recognize Yamaha's strong musical roots by its logo which consists of 3 interlocking tuning forks.

It was Genichi Kawakami, the current CEO of the Yamaha Corporation, who made the decision to utilize the companies engineering skills and expand into motorized devices.

By August 1954 the Yamaha YA-1 was complete. It was a two-stroke 125cc road bike. July 1955 Yamaha Motor Co L.t.d was founded. It now had its very own dedicated factory called the Hamakita Factory of Nippon Gakki.But it wasn't until 1968 that the first Yamaha dirt bike was produced. The DT-1 was a two-stroke 250cc Enduro bike and was claimed to be the worlds first true off-road motorcycle. It was an exciting and hugely successful bike... and the USA couldn't get enough of 'em!"
