66 rows of photos, 6 in a row of some very cool and interesting 200cc, fat tired Yamaha's. The photo of mine was down a quarter of the way or so and highlighted mine the day I brought it home (used). From a quick look down through the many rows, only a handful, a quite small handful of the bikes shown are being used as mine is. There were some very interesting mods done, from mild to wild. Bobbers, choppers, sleek cafe'd bikes and so on. For all intents and purposes, other than the removal of the kick starter, few changes over the years other than colors and paint schemes ever took place. Mine is old enough to have the kicker but does not have a trip meter, something the later ones do include.
Just to know that some of us received our Riding Education on these fun and versatile machines.......
Mine is in the shop and on the rack right now, only needing minor maintenance. Minor since the miles traveled last year were minimal, an advantage of spending my riding time on a variety of machines.
Here's the way I prefer to think of my own '92, though I could see myself having fun on most any of the private bikes referred to on that web page....... I just ain't that fussy.
Almost last but not least, I'll sneak these in. I'm tired of Bad Driveway stories and photos as I'm sure you are as well. Friday our daughter from USC flew home and yesterday was out inspecting the snow melt which she so dearly (not really) misses in L.A. We've seen and experienced a lot of things over these years in our driveway but Saturday morning there was something new and completely different. Most of the day we were kept at home due to this frozen 'meringue' on the driveway. Warm winds Friday afternoon and very cold overnight temps left us with this frozen pie topper yesterday, deep pie topper. By late afternoon, the two of us were able to walk through it and across to the other side and then by evening I was able to break it up some more with the (clearance of) plow truck/blade. Early Saturday morning it was a glaciated mess.
Not on the driveway but rather in our 'parking' area early today. This is where the plow truck has been resting this past week. Note the tire tracks and in the very top of the photo, where the plow blade left its crisp angled impression. All of the surrounding area is bare ground; this area was shielded from the sun all week in the truck's shadow.
Now for some happier time on the ol' driveway; the way a driveway SHOULD be used. There's nothing better than two-wheeling out, anticipated excitement ahead and following that, the joy of coming home after a Good Ride. (Note the shift into Road Gear, an extra special treat)
