It reminds me of my frend Eddeson

Dirt bikeing

Thanks for your comment Issy. The information that the image was reported with in the Star newspaper says that it is a Yamaha 350.

That is a trials bike not a motocrosser/race bike. I doubt it is a 350 either a most trials bike were lower capacity, low power and ultra low geared for climbing and negotiating difficult terrain.

Cool ☺☺☺☺☺
