Thought I'd share my Battle Scoot

This is my 1984 Yamaha Riva 180z. I recently applied a custom colored digital camo skin on it with my friend Brian Gerrard from Imagecraft Graphics in Auburn WA. It's my daily driver, although I have several other bikes that like to compete with it for my seat time. I love it. Picked it up in Olympia from a kid for $700, rode it all the way home to Seattle on I-5 with my Wifey following behind. The next weekend I rode it at the Isle of Vashon. Couple weeks later, had the Knobbies mounted, and never looked back. Most recently I wired up a 12v power outlet in the glove box for phone and GPS charging, and I just ordered my Ram mount for my Garmin Nuvi GPS, soon to make an appearance in the cockpit for longer missions and adventures.

Thanks as always for being such a great community, ADV. I love seeing everyone's' rides and learning from you all.
