Gorgeous and diverse bikes, y'all!
The 92 TDM 850 MK1 3VD. I call her "My Redhead ".
Now that I'm thinking about it, I've owned more Yamaha's than all other brand over the years. All vintage.
1 Rd350, 3 IT enduro's of various displacement and the TDM. I like em!
The best bike I've found to ride on all roads that catch my eye, to see what is over the next hill, and around the next bend, for as long as I choose to stay in the saddle. 70,000 Tenere miles between two of them so far, and still look foreward to getting on it each day.
My oldie, just turned 18 YO last july
I'm actually considering a Tenere as the next addition to the fleet. The 016 anniversary model.
Ooo good, another chance to tart my motorcycle pics...
Past yammies in order:
1992 TDM850 - sold it in 2004
1990 FJ1200 - sold it in 2010
1982 XT250 - swapped it in 2012/13
1992 TDM850 - sold it earlier this year
And the current one...
2004 TDM900 - no plans to change it, it's a fantastic machine :)
Very nice collection Jim, , and great photo work. I'm gonna keep the TDM. Pretty rare in the states. May never find another as clean as this one.
This is the one I spend my time on though.
1988 Route 66, 250cc. Picked up this spring(2,400 miles) for very little money. Had to downsize for health reasons. Forward pegs for my bum leg. New bars and grips, changed gearing, just ordered new tires, rebuilt master cylinder,replaced stator and regulator. Perfect for the roads here in the heart of the Driftless. Hell, even the pirates wave at me. Sometimes!!!!!!!!!!
Yep, it certainly is clean - hang onto it. I love the Mk1's, the best styled TDM of all. I wanted one ever since the first time I saw one in the bike mags around 1990/91, a Multistrada 15 years before Ducati 'thought' of the concept. Never liked the styling of the Mk2's (you didn't get 'em), they lost the aggressive lines of the Mk1. The 900 styling is bland but it's a brilliant bike overall.
The mighty TW 200 (1990) at the Fundy Adventure Rally
Here's my old smoker, she's just turned 40 yrs old.
It's a beauty! I nearly bought a 250 back in the early '80's but acquired a CJ250 instead (what an idiot!). Just noticed you're in Cumbria too! The sunshine laden pictures threw me
My 2016 Tenere
Haha , yes it was taken on one of the few sunny days we had this summer in Milnthorpe!
Here's my yellow ones.
The GT80 is restored with a Bassani pipe. The RZ has a fresh stage 2 porting job and first over pistons. Tuned by Chuck "Supertune" Quenzler in Clearwater, Florida. It's also got a Race Tech front end and a Works shock.
