Your CollectionThursday, July 5, 2007 | 8:09 AM
This week's collection comes from Joe "Fat Roll" Lopena.
"Here is a pic of my mint condition 1989 Honda CR125R. It was purchased in 1991 as a leftover and I am the original owner. The bike is completely stock original equipment except for the tires, fluids, and Acerbis front disk guard. I realize my bike is not a classic bike, but to me it has sentimental value. My father took me to my first-ever motocross race in 1989 at Unadilla when I was 11 years old. I remember watching George Holland and Mike Kiedrowski flying around the track on this model machine. I have been hooked on motocross ever since. My father passed away last year, and every time I walk into the garage and see my bike it reminds me of him and all the great times we have shared together."
