Oh that Yamaha 250cc V twin looks simply beautiful, I've never seen one before, might it be a foreign vehicle as I've never heard about them here in the UK..?

Yeah, that's a pretty little thing. I'd almost completely forgotten that Yamaha made that bike. A rare sight.

The VT250 was also a nice little V-twin back in the day:

But the real small V-Twin excitement from that era was to be had on one of these:

I bloody loved mine. Mental little beast it was.

Have you been out that way recently. Be warned there are Dragons teeth all along the road leading back to the Deer sanctuary

My first V-twin, Viagra 535s, now in for a full resto. Love this bike, will never willingly part with it.
My second V-twin, DL650GTA, love this too for numerous reasons but it ain't half a bit top heavy at slow speed. Hey ho that's why I got crash bars
