Default New toy

I've been looking for an older bike to learn to ride on and get my license. Thursday night I found this 81 Yamaha 650 Maxim in Rindge, NH. The bike is in nice shape for a 25 year old.... It'* got 19k on the clock... These pics are from this morning. I haven't washed it yet. This afternoon I ditched the cowl and added a padded sissybar. I'll post a couple of pics tomorrow after I give her a bath.

But look at the windshield.. it'* there because he lives in the land of a billion bugs.

He'll come back looking like Jim Carey

Looks like a good deal to me, though I have very little knowledge of bikes. I've always wanted to learn to ride. Congrats on the purchase and good luck riding.
