I went to talk to the Yamaha Dealer in my old hometown recently, (I moved many years ago)
We talked about the old days, reminisced about DT1's and XS's, when the talk
turned to TX750's his facial expression said it all. That bike cost Yamaha and the
local dealers a lot of money. I love the TX for it's uniqueness, but his experience
was a lot different than mine!
Yup, no doubt the unhappy customers made headaches for the dealers, and the warranty work isn't lucrative either. This thing is faster, MUCH smoother, better brakes, better lighting, handles as well as my '77 Bonney.
Too much is just barely enough.....
