Yamaha XS description

For Sale is my 1978 Yamaha 750XS Triple. I am the second owner of this bike and have owned it for 20 years. The other owner was my Godfather and I inherited from him. This bike is the definition of what these bikes did and can still do. This bike rides perfect and has no issues, none. I don't ride it often enough and I want it to see the bike go to a deserving home.  Everything works as it should on this bike and runs strong and idles nicely. I also have if interested is the matching fairing and hard saddle bags and sissy bar.  The bike looks so much nicer the way it is set up now but I can include those items if interested. I just had my bike shop go through it and everything is safe and ready to go. Has a new front tire and the back is practically new and great tread too. 

 

The only issue is there is a small chip in the paint by the gas tank. It can easily be touched up but the bike is so perfect, I wanted to leave it the way it is.

Motorcycle Live and a few of my favourite things for 2013

Tue, 27 Nov 2012

There is lots of shiny new metal on show at Motorcyclelive this year but for me it’s the new Triumph Daytona 675 that steals the show.  We’ve been starved of brand new models in the Supersports segment for years but for me the latest Trumpet has made the wait worthwhile. And if its performance matches its looks then I reckon the 2013 bike of the year is a foregone conclusion.  The sleek curvy nose contrasts perfectly with the more pointy angular rear end and new side mounted silencer. It is lighter, more powerful and revs harder with much work on on mass centralisation to further improve handling.  Few of us have a whole lot of spare cash these days but £8899 for the standard model seems a fair price for such an awesome bike. That said I’d have to consider selling the granny and granddad to find the extra £1700 for the 675R.  Available early next year, and surely the perfect all round track day tool, this beauty comes with upgraded suspension, brakes, ABS, a quickshifter and some nice carbon detailing. The white 675R on display at the show looked even better in the flesh than previous images I’d seen so be careful or you might find yourself handing over a deposit. With no money left from the Triumph stand you’ll need your six special numbers to come up for my second favourite show item the AGV Pista GP Project 46. Although road legal this extremely light, full carbon helmet is designed especially for racing with a huge field of vision, extensive ventilation and superb ergonomics. It also comes with earplugs which suggests there may be some compromise in the noise department but it is still an incredible piece of engineering. At £799, this special Pista is also an incredible price but there will only be one hundred available and Raceways Yamaha reckon they are going fast.        

Wood-Rotax SJ676 Grand Prix

Wed, 22 Jan 2014

Until yesterday I'd never even heard of this bike let alone seen one. I didn't know anything about it. I still don't, really but I dug up these words on the bike and thought I'd share them.
