  1. Hey everyone! New to this biking thing, with 10 months left on my Ps. Late starter, but loving my Yamaha 650 classic and want to learn about and chat about bikes, and generally read about different bike projects. Glad to meet all of you!

  4. Hi Brian welcome to Netrider.

    Eric I think he means the Yamaha XVS 650 Classic, not the old XS650, as in my avatar picture...

  5. Well if I am allowed to be biased. I would love the XS650. A classic bike that is reliable and can do all things well. And there are plenty of good XS650 out there. Both bikes are great, but I love classics.

  10. Welcome Brian,
    my first bike was the 650 custom.
    Loved it but went up to an 1100 custom once I was on a full license.

    Enjoy
