My buddy Kurt showed up today to pick up his .45 today (I was giving it an overhaul) Riding this
Afterwards we rode to lunch, I have to admit I thought this thing would've handled much better than it did, on the freeway it was quite smooth but around town it was very heavy with very heavy steering. Still a very cool piece of technology.
Yamaha GTS1000, cool piece of motorcycle history! Read a retrospective on those in Rider magazine recently, advanced design for the time in 93-94, fuel injection and ABS way before it was common, and the trick singled sided RADD front end was stable and dive free. Decent power at 100hp and 550lbs dry, but the downside of the suspension was heavy steering at low speeds and a terrible turning radius.
