The 1979photo is out front of my parents house in Epping Victoria.
I did have a Yamaha before the xs650, it was a TX500. We don't talk about that.

Awesome! Hey 1979 was a good year, a real fine year. I wouldn't be here without that year. (And here I am giving my age away. Haha.)

I'm a Yamaha girl. Started on a Yamaha Special 400. Two years ago was on a FZ6. And now I have the glorious V Star 950.

Great photos Chedobean. Thanks for sharing!

I had the same bike (different color). Honda CB450 prior to that. After the xs650, moved to the VStar 650, now the 1300 tourer. Like they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Back then, 70's, had a Honda 450 which was a great ride, as well! But prior had a 80 cc Yamaha road bike and now own my vstar 950 tourer. Probably experiencing different bikes allows one to compare. However, over the years I have found families have dictated what breed whether truck, vehicle, motorcycle or snowmobile. Lots of fun in clubs with harassing just for fun! Left many challenges for the enthusists who researched the mechanics, speed and newest technology being developed by manufacturers. Love to read the different discussions, opinions and ideas from all!
Ride safe and enjoy!~YammyV
