Yamaha R3 – First Ride.

Fifteen years ago I was 20 years old. Reef provided the soundtrack to my life and 400cc supersport bikes were miniature mounds of beauty. I’m not old enough to remember the 350LC craze the first time around. No, for me and any of you currently between the age of 32 and 40, an RGV250 or […]
