1982 Yamaha XJ 650

Purchased: Sep 2003
Sold: Jul 2005
Info: Insane acceleration in 3rd-5th gears. Wiped out and broke my foot on this 1. Rear drum brake got me. Hard to believe it weighs ~570 lbs given the pep! Lazy handling, mushy brakes, and I did mention it is heavy. this motorcycle was definitely intended for a 6´+ person, i was never very comfortable on it. too wide, tall, & handlebar too far. total cost $1627.64. This 1 was like new: 9500 miles, in d

Purchased: May 2000
Sold: Aug 2000
Info: This was my first street bike. It is also my favorite because it fit me perfectly. I am <6'' in height and on this mid-size bike i felt fearless. excellent brakes, handling and comfort. pretty good acceleration. it would go up to 120 mph @ max rpm without problems all day long. i came so close to scratching mufflers on the pavement so many times it hurts to remember! it came with the original t

Purchased: Mar 2001
Sold: Aug 2001
Info: This was a basic iron grocery getter. loud, vibrating, stiff suspension, lots of tinkering required, especially with the old-skool points ignition. It had ~30K miles when i bought it and came with the original tool kit. I bought the owner´s manual on kawasaki´s website. I drove it all over north-western Oregon. it was rather top-heavy but the handling was above average although twitchy on bad asp

Purchased: Jun 1994
Sold: Jul 1994
Info: my 1st dirt bike. bought it for 75$, drained the carb, cleaned the plugs, new fuel mix, and after ~1 hour of kicking and cussing it was driveable. old-skool power band: little power off idle with a sudden wheelie-inducing kick at mid-rpm. I did not have a truck to take it to the track so i sold it for $ 350.

Purchased: Aug 2002
Sold: Sep 2002
Info: This was the Laverne cruiser model. it was impounded in 1999 and sat in a repo yard in Alaska for 3 years. it looked like a decrepit pile of junk. i bought it at an auction for 175$. After a while of massaging back to life I rode it home that afternoon! very easy-riding large cruiser. low center of gravity, stable on all surfaces, can hardly feel its mass. endless torque and low-maintenance. this

Purchased: Apr 2001
Sold: Aug 2001
Info: fast as hell, 505 cc, better-than-new complete rebuild. I actually got it for free as a rolling frame & 2 buckets of parts. I bought the owner´s manual on kawasaki´s website. they also have all the parts diagrams there. $950 later it was my shiny suicide machine. psycho-riding the woodsy trails was stressful and fun! this engine had 3 power-bands: "just strong enough" to pull uphill on s

Info: starts in 3-5 kicks and pops a wheelie on command! it fits me better than any previous bike and is light-weight , almost like a moped. simple and awesome.

Sold: Sep 2006
Info: Bought this 1 for 400$. with 22K miles it runs amazingly smooth, excellent mid-range pep. with 2 cylinders it is a relatively light bike, which is just right for me. installed a new battery and mirrors on it. it is great for around-town sprints. i don''t know how fast it goes because the tires are far too old for that experiment :-) bought saddle skin job for 100$ - the bike looked sweet, almost ne
