    Wow that bike looks nice! I still have my original pipes but I'm not sure how good the mufflers are on them, last time I checked them they sounded like an hour glass when I tilted them

    The Awards have been received!

    First, an explanation of our awards….

    The Vintage Yamaha Rally is a “RIDERS RALLY” our bikes don’t sit static and unridden WE RIDE. Each day groups are formed to go out and enjoy the beautiful scenery, fantastic (and sometimes challenging) roads, eat lunch together, and return to the lodge for dinner and an evening of comradery with friends around the campfire or during our Saturday evening festivities.

    A few years ago, the Organizing Team decided it would be nice to be able to recognize some of the hard work our attendees had performed in restoring or modifying their machines. A very NON-TRADITIONAL “Bike Show” was begun. This is no ordinary show, all of the ATTENDEES receive a ballot and vote on their favorite Vintage Yamahas. Typically, the attendees couldn’t care less if there is a little dirt or road grime on the bike. There are no formal judging forms “no points for this” or “deductions for that”. Just the votes from your friends to recognize your effort in restoring or resto-modification of your Vintage Yamaha.

    In addition, the Yamaha Factory Representative selects a machine that he feels exemplifies Vintage Yamaha. Last year, and again this year, Yamaha also awards several additional machines with Gift Certificates for Yamaha Merchandise.

    As a side note, ALL of our attendees are RIDERS! They love Vintage Motorcycles all shapes and sizes. And although ALL are welcome to attend the Vintage Yamaha Rally, only Yamaha Motorcycles 20+ years of age or older are considered eligible for the awards.
