The yr2c - my first adv bike : )

Finally got it re-registered ......... 30 years later : )
Runs like a top. Smells like 1968.
Original, not restored.

A pic from today's ride:

Beautiful bike! I lusted over these in high school. The steering damper and those white grips are pure classic Yamaha.

You have given away your age... The black knobs were the steering dampers back in those days. Crank in down and create friction so the head don't shake. Only thing is, it just made things worse most times.

Remember crankin the damper knob super tight when goin down the twisty highway ? Remember the time you left it that way and came into town and dropped it in the parking lot at 2 MPH cause the steering was "stuck" ! ?
