125 mile run Charlotte DGR on 47 year old 2 stroke
« on: September 25, 2017, 06:28:36 pm »
Did the 2017 Distinguished Gentlemans Ride on my 70 yamaha R5.  Only maint items have been adressed... rest is dead stock and original. Pretty much a survivor, had zero issues the whole time, this things a freakin' trooper. was 30 or so miles to the ride and 45 or so on way back.

yours truly and 'barney'.

I had a '72 R5 and agree it's a great bike.

hopefully!  I really wanted to make this year's but my company decided this was the weekend for an enterprise wide disaster recovery test.  ugh.

but it gives me more time to work on appropriate attire!   :great:
