    Default Followed me home last October

    1985 Yamaha RZ350

    Last October I received a call from an old friend who told me that there was a yellow Yamaha 350 that his Father in-law (passed away) has sitting in the family's garage and asked if I wanted it. It had been sitting for over a year under a bed covering. Out of curiosity I went over there, turn the key on and in one kick, the bike started. Next thing you know and $2800 poorer, the darn bike followed me home.

    Beautiful bike. What a great find. Enjoy it!!

    p.s. I remember following one of those around a traffic circle in NJ on a cold wet rainy day, what a mess. He went down at least twice. Save it for sunny days!

    Nice find. One of my crushes. It would be hard not to rip off those big giant blinkers, horns, tail light, etc, etc, etc.

    Wow, that's a little ripper Berk. The KR model too, we had LC's and RZ's but didn't get KR's here. Enjoy carving on that thing, you're probably 200 lb lighter than an XR, even with a full fledged centre stand (I miss them, *sniff*).

    Come back and tell us some two stroke stories sometime, OK?

    Had to replace the handlebar, hoses, tires and replaced the brake lines with steel braided ones. Plan on doing the YPVS Power Valve Seal Kit next.

    Hey Berk, how about a head to head pic of the KR and the XSR together, at a scenic location of course? You know you want to...
