Yamaha YX600 Radian
« on: August 09, 2016, 11:41:27 am »
I have inherited a motorcycle.





Specifically it's a Yamaha YX600 Radian.

From what I know, it hasn't been ridden in awhile, but should run pretty well with some minor work. Right now it's in Atlanta - at some point I'm gonna have to tow it back to CO.

Nope. I've already found a place pretty close by that does the MSF courses.

Radian is packed up and ready to be shipped to CO. Ended up getting a UPack container (basically a smaller version of a POD).

Now I need to figure out when I'm going to do an MSF course, get gear, get licensed/insured, and get the bike in good running condition.

Delivery on Monday. Not that it really matters since I still need to take the MSF course (i.e. actually learn how to ride), but at least it'll be here when I'm ready.

Radian has arrived and fits adequately in garage next to S2000. :praise:

No, he is a slave to aesthetics. We will throw a cafe racer kit on a TU250X and tell him it is a Triumph Thruxton. He will not know the difference
