I agree with you on the Willow Springs comment (Yellow ST4 here).



I was referring to anniversary editions complete with special models, paint, etc. Yamaha is celebrating the 25th anniversary of a bike they don't even make anymore and painting the Road Star silver and slapping badges on it.



My congrats to Suzuki. They make some awesome motorcycles.

Happy Birthday Suzuki, from the Trans-Am series in the early '70's to today you guys kick-ass. I'm lovin' my Bandit 1200 [the recognized pinnacle of moto-evolution]

Holy Smokes is that Orange/Black Hayabusa ugly or what?!?! This poor bike needs a facelift, not an ulgier paint job!

Seriously, they were celebrating 100 years of Indian motorcycles!

I didn't think the 'busa job was that bad. The same can't be said for the GSX-R600, though (IMO).

Oh well, you've got to get hype any way you can I guess.



I won't be riding one anytime soon unless someone wants to donate a '46 Chief to me.

Yamaha was celebrating 25 years of making cruisers, not 25 years of making the XS650. It's no different than Suzuki celebrating 40 years of selling bikes in the U.S., or H-D celebrating 100 years of making motorcycles.

Well, actually HD's bikes bear a striking resemblance to their bikes of 100 years ago. Some even appear to still have a total-loss oiling system. (Just kidding.)

Don't forget the Royal Enfield "Indians" of the 60s.



Does that make it only 48 years of no production?



Maybe we could start our own country. We could call it The Roman Empire and claim that we're celebrating 4 thousand years of existence.
