The centennial colours looks the best ... what say you?




1978. It's 6am, mid winter...two up on a XL 185S ... off to my first casino ever with all of R40 and we've got a full tank of fuel, so enough to get there we reckon.... that's determination...

I looked at this before it was even released. Been reading a few articles and
reviews on it. Biggest complaint seems to be that its a bit underpowered.
Thats not necessarily a negative fore everyone though

The only thing I would change about it is remove the tablet and fit round clocks like the R1200R has on. Me no like tablets for a dash.

It has a front fender off the Yamaha QB50 Vogel, and one very ugly engine.

Maybe ugly (to some) maybe underpowered, maybe a dozen reasons why it doesn't measure in practicality against the UJM, but it's just one of those bikes that grabs you.

Why? Just 'cos it is what it is.  :3some:
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"Two Wheels, an engine and a place to sit." What more do you need?

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.
