My bike is a 1985 Yamaha RZ500.

I bought it new in 1985 and put about 30,000 kilometers on it. It's in excellent condition. There are many 4 stroke motorcycles with more power, but the power band on this bike is extremely explosive and peaky.  It's a very exciting bike to drive and it gets your adrenaline running.

I didn't have much time to drive it as I got older. The lack of riding kept the bike in excellent condition. Also I live in Toronto Canada and winter in long and cold. It's not motorcycle weather.

Hope you like my bike.

2030 Harley Davidson Firefighter Special residing in the greater Pensacola FL area.  The picture of the tank shows what appears to be a rusted bolt.  These were welded to steel building girders for cement to adhere to, the bolts were fractured from the the building and lay all over 911 Ground Zero.  At the bottom of the tank is a square piece of metal with barley visible "911 - 343". the 343 being the number of NYC firefighters killed.  This metal was the exterior shins of World Trade Center 1 or 2. This has become, in my mind, a tribute to all of those that perished that day.  People are drawn to this machine and I point out these artifacts, saying its not about me nor the bike, its about "Never Forget"!Wicked Paint Job.jpgFLHR After2.jpgHD Artifacts.jpgMy Bike at PGR.jpg

 About 25 years ago I was trying to relive my youth and on the hunt for a 60’s Triumph Bonneville 650.  Found the bike I wanted and the owner started it and I thought I’m going home with this bike. I got on the bike and couldn’t kick start it to save my life. After a few tries I reluctantly took a pass. About a week later I’m driving to work and see this yellow bike for sale in a homeowners yard. It had electric start and it was about $1500 cheaper than the Triumph. I bought it from the original owner with all the books and tools. It’s a 1977 Honda CB 400F. Currently it has 17,000 miles and never been restored. I ride it only a few times a year. It leaks a little gas at first but then goes away and it still runs beautifully without ever touching the carbs in all these years. I’m sure it’s worth many times more than what I paid but I just can’t sell it because I’ll never have another Motorcycle.
