The old and the new

In June, I drove the old 1981 Yamaha 750 Seca to the dealer.  Sold it to the mechanic for $100.  Bought my new Yamaha.
 
Old:
750 air-cooled, in-line 4, shaft drive, adjustable front air shocks, adjustable rear compression & rebound, anti-dive fork, rear drum brake, LCD dash, 62 HP, skinny tires, stock, owned since new, garage kept, 19,000 miles, 34 years old
 
New: You already know.
Bought the Madstad tall and flyscreen.  I am 6'2", 34 " inseam.  The tall screen does a great job, I can ride with my helmet open and get little wind or buffeting.  With it closed, still no wind, but I hear some buffeting from the top of the helmet.  Really keeps wind off of me, even on the highway.  I'll switch back to no screen (my favorite) or the flyscreen in the spring.

Wow, a running 750 for $100? The mechanic scored. I had an '82 model of that Seca and really, really liked that bike.
 
Of course your new one rocks, congratulations!
 
1980 Yamaha 850 Triple (sold). Too many bikes to list, FJ-09 is next on my list
