Brought on a whim as a reliable all rounder and in time for the 2011 Manx GP. Wanted to buy a R100GS but these old BMWs are getting expensive. This Yamaha is alot of bike for your money, easy to ride, comfortable and pretty fast to boot. Whatever else I own, I want to keep this one on the road at all times. I use it so much, my van's started to feel left out!
