I started riding a Yamaha DT175 about 40 years ago, then moved to XS400 and RD350. Left the bikes for about 20 years then bought a 94 YZF750R to commute (if you can call 130kmph in first commuting). One of a few bikes that has a low seat to suit my small stature. The bike bug bit again and I started finding RD/RZ 250/350s in various states of repair - long term projects. Then found an Aprilia RS250 which really brought back memories of youth. But I realised I would never be able to ride it like it was designed for. Well, finally decided to change riding position away from supersport leaning forward onto clipons and bought a Yamaha Bolt. What a fantastic bike. Suits me to a T. Low seat, comfortable riding position, plenty of torque and I am scraping pegs again. I love the simplicity it presents, no added frills - just black, white and aluminium.
