Ive got a couple of the old Rds and man, are they a blast to ride ! Just fix the suspension and get some good sticky tires on it and they rail !As long as you check on the oil pumps they will work reliably, just get a Yamaha service manual and follow the maintance tables. The old 2strokes are fun, but, rember - these are old bikes that require diligence in maintenance, totally unlike the stuff we have now. It really stinks to hear people take bad about them simply becuase they wont maintain them - you must check your points, you must replace top ends etc. I can reccomend getting one of these as a play bike but, just rember to maintain them.
