This ‘you tube’ gem sent to me recently brought back some funny memories from the scary but incredibly exciting days of 500cc two stroke racing. This particular race was the final round of the All Japan 500cc Championship at Tsukuba Circuit where I enjoyed a head to head battle with national hero Tadahiko Taira. Yamaha’s favourite son at the time, ‘tie wrap’ as we liked to call him, was taller and better looking than most Japanese riders (maybe a war baby?) and went on to win nearly everything in Japan during his career.Tue, 17 Nov 2009 00:00:00 -0800

This is what auctioneers would call an 'investment grade vehicle'. I'd call it a bit of a waste. This 1999 Yamaha YZF-R1 has only covered 165-miles since new, that's an average of 12.6 miles a year..
