1982 Yamaha Vision

1982 Yamaha Vision

After nearly totalling the Yamaha Venturer, I decided that I wanted to go back to a lighter bike. I was looking for a Seca 650 and went to look at a used one at a dealership. Just as I got there some other guy left on it and ended up buying it. The dealer asked if I was interested in this Yamaha Vision which was also used. I thought the bike was kind of weird looking and too high tech but I wasn't about to turn down a test ride. I came back impressed with it's handling and what I think is still the best motor of any bike I've ridden, so I bought it. Later I discovered paperwork in the tail that indicated it had been a test bike for magazines. If anyone has 1982 issues of Car Craft magazine I'd love to get the review, because that was my bike they rode. I put about 14k on this bike.
