Sorry, no pic, too long ago, about 1976. I was about 18 years old and bought my first sreet bike which happened to be an RD 350. All stock, and now i guess I've had 40 to 50 bikes since. Cheers.

ps. Thinking of Yamaha's past, i had a 1982 Yamaha Vision, very bitchen motorcycle. A 550 V twin, smooth as silk. Anyone else have one?


I had a 83 XZ550(Vision), red and wht, Great motor and full fairing.Rode it to Laconia lots of times and twice to the DT miles at Syracuse.It was a really good motorcycle and I truly believe Yamaha should have stuck with it more than just a couple years.


Yeah, i agree. It's a shame Yamaha bailed on them. The '83 had some nice upgrades over the '82. That fairing with those vents that would direct hot air from the radiator on the rider when cold and the slightly higher risers on the handlebars i remember. Very cool bike. Cheers.
