Enough idle chatter  :deal: ;D

Not a very perky bike, used to come out with a belt drive called the Virago?

Or am I wrong....

How many times do we have to tell you it's a TR1 ??? ::)

TR1!!! TR1!!! TR1!!!

They were very nice bikes before they got pansified with the shaft drive, buck horn bars and other half arsed cruiser accessories.



No Yamaha ever came off the assembly line with a belt drive. Unless they also build washing machines?

You get a number of Kawasakis with belt drive (GPZ305, Z440LTD, Z450LTD, Z750LTD Twin).
A BMW or two.
And plenty of Harleys starting with the Evo's

Die XT enjin HL500 is inderdaad n baie spesiale fiets, en mooi op n 70's MX manier. Dit sal selfs vandag n baie lekker speelfiets maak, met sy XT500 enjin en baie ligte gewig.
