Wow, after putting 1800 miles on mine, that's pretty hard core. Maybe I'll do a big trip this summer.

Ned-the Enduro Doctor is from Raleigh. He worked for Yamaha for many years. If you have a question about old Yammies he is the man for you. His bike is a masterpiece of engineering ingenuity.

Great stuff! That antiqued photo is nice.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!
