The '86 Yamaha Radian

  1. The Bad Rad in all its glory:




    I'm going to try to get some more pictures once I get some time to shine her up and ride. Got my seat redone a few weeks ago with brand new foam, so I can actually stay on the bike more than 70 miles before my butt hurts too much! 8) Also need to track down someone with a welder to fix my left rear turn signal. Housemate moved my bike, dropped it on a freezer in the garage and grabbed the light instead of the metal grab bar. I JB Welded it and that lasted a week before someone fucked it up in a parking lot. :roll:
  2. Old school and yet so very cool! Reminds me of my old SECA... :D

  3. Thanks for the comments. :)

    She may be old school, but she can still hold her own with a lot of 600cc bikes until about 100 or so. Or so I've been told - I just know she gets up to 100 in a hurry and tops off at about 105 MPH, GPS-veriftied, when it's at 10,000 RPMs in 6th gear.

    That's far too fast for public roads, anyways. ;)
