Purchased: Jan 1992
Info: This bike is the OW01, FZR750RR. This was my dream bike back in 1988. This particular one was national champion 1990 and I bought it in 1992. I used it for two years with its race engine. After that period I changed the body for its original look and made some alterations in the engine. More c.c., more power, bigger carburetors… and much more since I wasn’t limited to the super-bike regulations. I

Purchased: Apr 2005
Info: This bike came in to my possession resulting of a bike trade with a friend of mine. I had two Yamaha’s RZ500 and this friend had two Suzuki’s RG500Gamma… so it was natural that we swap bikes. Both, my friend and I, have this thing with two-stroke engines, more now that they disappear from the races. I’m not going to leave them in its original form.

Info: I bought this bike to try the off-road. I never tried and this bike seemed to be a good model to start. I think that the off-road experience can help me improve my riding skills all around, I hope I’m right.

2002 Yamaha XJR 1300

Purchased: Oct 2002
Sold: Nov 2004
Info: I bought this for city use. It’s very good for that purpose the only down size of this bike is the consumption. If you try to go to open road with it the limit is 140-160km/h, more than that is a nightmare.
