Yamaha Reviews

The Japanese company was well known for its musical instruments, but in 1955 it began producing motorcycles.

Patrick Racing Road Star Warrior

With all of our recent forays out to Los Angeles County Raceway, doing drag strip runs with various machines, I've come to a realization: Drag racing does not suck.

First Ride: Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog

Oh my, oh my, what a little teaser she was. Just two years ago, a fresh and naked beauty ended up as a desktop background on countless computer screens around the world and prompted grown men (me included) to drool.

2002 Yamaha FJR1300

When I was a kid I used to play make-believe with my friends. I'd be Audey Murphey or maybe Roy Rodgers while they'd be the outlaw Jessie James or Billy the Kid. They were good times, though I can't recall a time in recent memory when I've played...

Yamaha Diversion 900
