in the 80's I raced against a bloke call mad dog Miller, he rode a 490 and he was fast but could not stop or turn the bike so he always over shot turns and went wide on all the rutts. So for every 5 lap race he rode 5.5  Ha Ha

Hi Ross,  I might have to change my dream of a yz 250a as I cannot find one at the right price.
I will give a few more weeks if no good I will get some more details on the 414, at lest the 414 will handle a lot better

Hi Graeme,  400 ??? I think at last count it was around 120 bikes owned but no where near 400 wins.
the 400 came from I rode a YZ 400 and some years a 250 as well models where  YZ, A, B,C,D,E,F,and a 465 G.
So when I need a log name I went with 400.

Your right I dont remember you, sorry I was not a big head I use to talk to any one who spoke to me at the time.
so do you still race now ?? and if so what do you ride ?

It was in 1985 I gave away motorcroos and just rode a few enduro's for a few years.
so I supose I raced for 20 years and lucky with no major injuries.
I am now 51 and still fit as I have been racing push bikes and still playing Football for a local club but I think the football has to go as I cannot walk for 2 days after a game.
So I am now looking to get back into Motorcroos again and I am currently looking for a YZ 250a because that is where I started all those years ago but the prices a out of the world !!!! but I will keep on looking.

so what is your name Hoony ???

Yep Hoony may be I should be called Legend not U.
Yep started riding CZ's in the early 70's then moved on to a YZ250a was a ex Trevor Flood works replica and starded winning 1st day I rode it I think it was at the old Warragul track in 1974.
mainly rode YZ's with a short stint on a 414 Montesa and a 480 Honda.

Hi there I raced a 414 for Lyal O'Brien in the early 80/s in Gippsland and did a few selected races in Melbourne and did very good picking up a few wins the 414 was a very rideable but lacked a little horspower in the to end compared to the Yamaha 465 at the time.  but love to have one today.
