This is my new 2019 Yamaha Smax. I have owned it for 13 days and have over 700 miles on it.

How well does that high revving SMAX climb the north Georgia hills? Road test articles dont say much about maintaining speed during a climb.

I will say it is much better than my Buddy 170 but is no V8.

I will say it is much better climbing hills than my Buddy 170 but is no V8. It has more horsepower.

Do you ever see Awesome Bill from Dawsonville around town? I loved watching him race that T-bird.

I have never seen him around town but I watched him on the track a few times. I used to go to some of the races but no more.

Back in the 80s, I made a trip to the Daytona 500. Nobody could stay close to Bill that day except A.J' Foyt (Yes, A.J. in a stock car. He has raced everything but gopeds).
-A.J. ran out of gas with 3 laps to go and Bill cruised for the win. It would have been a great final lap if A.J. had a little more fuel.
-Bigger restrictor plates at Daytona during those days. Drafting occurred, but much less, so there was far more passing.
-The same year, I travelled to Charlotte for the World 600. I watched Darrell Waltrip lead most of the race. Bill took the lead with about 10 laps to go but he couldn't hold off DW, and settled for 2nd.
-Going to the track to see a race is quite an experience, especially when your favorite is winning.
