Yes, Goes back to my university days where my friends hung the name on me as I was so of a "high energy" type.
Thanks for the welcome

Hi. I'm Paul M. from Zeeland, MIchigan. I'm a 61 year old semi-retired tinkerer. I recently acquired a '76 GT80 that someone painted red and put the tank decals on backwards. They basically turned it into an MX by removing the lights, etc. I wouldn't have known any of this without the knowledge that I gained from this site in the Tech Library VIN info. I also found a '79 "parts bike" that I bought quite cheap that's missing a lot of things.
I've had Yamaha Enduros since I turned 13 in 1971 and bought a JT1. I burned a hole in a piston and once had a wrist pin bearing come apart on that first one, which required learning about them as I had to fix it myself. Since then I've had a 125, two 175s, two 360s, and I still have a '71 DT1E 250. Also have a 72 Honda 250 Motosport. I really enjoy the Enduros because of their simplicity and love working on them again.

Welcome from the other side of Michigan. I mean I am literally straight east from you as far as you can go without crossing the border to Canada. I too am 61 years old and started with a JT. As you can see by my avatar and my signature... I am a severe Enduroholic.
