It was my first Mountain Bike in the USA. A lovely, hardy bike she was, my Yokota Ahwahnee. I picked her up at the LBS in Columbia, Missouri, in 1993, when I was a first year grad student. She cost me close to $220, with taxes and all - quite the luxury for someone on a Teaching Assistantship.
She was a beauty. I rode her over many unpaved roads and paved roads, not as avidly as I do these days, but she got to see quite a few places.
She was my car, my grocery getter, my commuter bike, my mountain bike, my snow mobile and all that and more!
