Basically, this bike is nearly perfect! I literally can't think of a single scratch on the bike. It's a matte black finish with silver racing stripes, and it looks awesome. It has 8435 miles on it. The front tire has a season remaining on it, and it has a brand new rear rotor and tire, so the bike is in tip-top shape. I answer my phone all day long, and even at night. Feel free to call me anytime with questions, and if I'm awake, I'll answer. Otherwise, feel free to leave me a message, and I will call you back as soon as I get a moment.

1992 Yamaha VMax 1200 VMX 12
My first VMax 1200. It's a 1992. Replacement parts are becoming scarce.
Yamaha has discontinued making quite a few major components for it.
Aftermarket parts seem to be hard to locate. I have found a lot of
knowledge about them, but not enough cold hard parts. In the first three
weeks I have owned it I have put 1100 miles on it. It's a terrific bike and
has minimal issues for it's age. A little wrenching and some winter work
and I shouldn't have to touch it again for years to come. It is a very
reliable powerhouse of a bike. This is a first time video shoot. It isn't
the best camera work I know. It is just out there for a more realistic shot
of the bike than a turn key and rev it up as so many others have done. If
you have a VMax video you would like to share, especially something about
repairs and troubleshooting, don't hesitate to post a link in the comments
section below. In the meantime I will work on developing improvements to my
camera shot and narrative for the next video I will be posting.
