My first road bike was actually a dirt-bike, a 1980
KDX175 enduro. I was 17 years and 9 months old when I test-rode this
bike, and was amazed that something could have so much snap. It handled
brilliantly in the dirt, used too much fuel, too many piston rings,
and too many knobby tyres to be a good (impoverished student's) hack.
I had to sell it for something less demanding.
