This site is dedicated to the XJ series of motorcycles produced by The Yamaha Motor Co. of Japan, mostly in the early 1980's.
Please feel welcome here and I hope you find my site helpful.
Sorry about the popup banners, just minimize it and you won't get a fresh one for each page viewed.
OK, a bit about myself, My name is Dave, I am an Electrician by trade living in Timaru on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand.
I am 41 years old and have been riding since I was 15. I have owned 11 motor cycles including 6 Yamaha XJ series bikes that I have done ground up restorations on or have waiting to be done. I have found them to be a very reliable ride with plenty of power to suit my more relaxed style of riding.
My wife Bronnie (who also rides, may the biker gods bless her!) and myself are into the New Zealand motorcycle rally scene, attending as many of the rally's and charity rides that we can.
As of 11-11-2008 I will no longer be updating my pages, life changes have made this a low priority now. I will leave the site up in the hopes that people will still find the information here of use.
