Review of the 1972 Yamaha R 5 F:
I spent 11K on a kawasaki zzr 1200...want a R-5
Author: bill bridgeman, 2005-09-06|
In over 30 years of riding, my r-5 was the most fun bike ever. The sportbikes of today are devastatingly fast...I´ve had a bunch of them...time to slow down and enjoy a nice ´72 r-5 and maybe live to collect my pension.
|I am about to buy the lowest milage example anywhere...363 miles. I will need to do some restoration...but that´s OK. You know the old saying...´the older I get, the faster I went´...it´s true.|
