I am 62 years old, a father, a grandfather and a lifelong RT3 fan. I ride with my sons and grandsons. I have two 1973 RT3's. One is tagged and on the road as a daily rider and the second one is a restoration project that is going very well. I will post pictures of both. I owned a brand new RT3 in 1973. I have the best memories of rides in Southern Florida on the beach, in the then vast wooded areas and the Everglades. One of my favorite riding spots was the then abandoned movie site where "Gentle Ben" was filmed. It was on a lake with an old rustic cabin in the middle of nowhere. I had to jump a canal to get there. One time I missed and landed in the middle of the canal. I held on to the RT3 with one hand and somehow managed to drag it up on the bank. I did my best to drain the water because it was a long way home. It started fine and never caused me any problems. I am a die hard RT3 fan.

Old friend directed me to this "new" site. (thanks Rick) Been riding since the late 60s mostly on hondas. Had friends throughout that period of time with yammie enduros. One person had a RT3 and my first ride on a yammie enduro. I was deeply impressed. Fast forward to 2009 with the purchase of a thrashed RT1 1971. Then in 2012 a CT1 1970. Both up and running. Loving every minute.
Great new site! Thanks!

T-bone,
Great intro story. I started on a Honda street Sport 50 (CA110) in 1966. Best fun in the world for a 14 year old. Absolute freedom to go anywhere. Several bikes later, I ended up with a used 1971 Honda SL350. I had a blast but it was not a fast enduro off road. So in 1973 I got a new Yamaha RT3 360. Best bike and fun I have ever had. I have two of them now. Welcome to this new and great group.
