- YSR50, fun street legal 49cc 2-stroke oil injected sport bike.



- WR250X Sumo, I was going to get arrested if I kept this bike, it's the go anywhere ride that brought out my inner hooligan.



- FZ09, this bike is just as bad as the WR250X... not as much go anywhere but I have taken it on some fire roads and made my own shortcuts via curbs, and a stair or two. It has a good bit more power so that comes into play, that and the front wheel likes to come off the ground a lot.



I'm reading up a bit on the R3, very much like what I see and may have to add one to the stable at some point.
Some awesome photos and bikes here. Love the FZ09 and the black one there too. Both look great and also fun to ride. You're quite the Yamaha fan. The R3 will fit into the group nicely.

Started on a 1980 Yamaha 250 Exciter.
Traded that in for a 1982 Yamaha XS400 Seca, my favorite bike of all time.
(Hence the avatar)
Had two 2008 Ninja 250Rs, the last one I traded for a Honda 2011 CBR250R.
2015 is the year I trade that in for a Yamaha YZF-R3.
Been waiting for Yamaha to make a modern version of my dearly missed Seca 400 for a LONG time now!

It's unreal..... honestly. The first track session on it was in Mode-D which neuters all the low end. (rain street mode I'm guessing) Second session was in Mode-A, track mode....good gawd.... just where the last gen signed off the 15 was still 4k from redline. Mode-A has all the aids (T/C, Lift...etc) set to one.

Chassis is really communicative which allows quick tip-in and twisting the right grip quicker. I started trusting the T/C and Lif almost immediately. Never had that amount of feel with the 2014's t/c. With a fairly "green" track it didn't take much for it to be felt. Within a few laps I was relying upon it. Coming out of slower turns would be an exercise patience without lif, the bike just wants rear up through the gears. (1st thru 3rd). Over hill crests it was nice not having to roll out of it.

The linked abs will take a little getting used to. As it kicks in the front level releases a bit while the back end starts to apply. Another national racer mention it helps drifting the bike in. I see where it might, but it'll take some practice.

Overall: Fastest bike I've thrown a leg over.

'02 YZF600R. Beefed up the suspension, toured thousands of miles on that bike. Just, even with a cut-down seat, got tired of not being able to put my foot down if a hill was too steep. And of course that traditional Yamaha transmission that took a sledgehammer to shift.
