We, that means first my brother and later myself, ride one of the first TR1 in Germany build in 1981. This TR1 is nearly original up to color and steering. Sorry, we work on that.
I like Often I read on the technical pages as well as on the forum. It´ s always interesting. :-)

I have been without a bike for 31 years. Bought a Guzzi cali as donor for for a Triking project this winter. This whet my appetite for a two wheeler. While browsing for a chopper/bobber project next, I came across the TR1. Perfect specification, and your site is FANTASTIC. I cut my teeth at the age of 13 on a 350 Ariel, rigid with girder forks, this is what MY TR1 will replace!!!
Keep up the good site :-)

A TR1ne in a garage is safe, but that is not what TR1ne is built for! ;-)

I´ve had my US-spec 1981 XV920RH since 1985, bought new from the crate (warehouse) and have been a reader of this site off and on for years. Always helps me appreciate such a rare and faithful machine. Just had the engine overhauled and mechanic is looking for final parts which are a bit harder to find over here.

I take it to antique/classic motorcycle shows around here (Washington, DC) and it is more rare than the old Brit bikes! It always draws a crowd.

Awesome data! Well done, you deserve a medal!
I am between a rock and a hard place. I have the opportunity to buy either a 1983 Seca 900 or 1982 XV920RJ for the same money. The Seca has 27K miles on it and the XV 12K miles on it. What to do, what to do?

I haven´t visited this site for a while and I must congratulate you for the new format. I have owned many different motorcycles (Moto Guzzi, Kawasaki, BMW, BSA, Suzuki and Triumph) but my TR1 is my favourite bike of all time - I suppose that´s why I still have one!

Nice site Manfred. I have been visiting for years, keep up the good work.
I have a few pictures of my bike that I have been working on. I would like to submit them for inclusion in you rgallery. How do I do that?
Note. I will be at the rally this year, driving across from the UK.
Three possibilities. Register yourself at the riders list. There you can upload *one* picture of your TR1 (and from yourself :-) Or you create a gallery somewhere in the web and use one of the two web-links from the riders list to point to it. Or you send me the pictures using e-mail together with a short story. If your bike is not original anymore, it’s a candidate for the gallery. Manfred

I just bought a 1985 TR1 yesterday, it is a machine I wanted to own since I first saw it. I have crawled the net for info about TR1, and this site is probably the best place to go for information and inspiration.

Nice site ! found real useful content here. Nice to know there are more people who love this simple V-twin concept of Yamaha, no rocket science, just plain air cooled fun. I think Yamaha was thinking larger selling numbers but,.......well you know,...the rest is history.

Anyway like to meet you all (not all at once) lol) on the road ! and please try to keep your bike running for ever.

Hi from Ottawa Ontario Canada. About 29 years ago I traded my new 1981 Yamaha XV750 Virago for the 1981 XV920RH "Euro" style bike that the local dealer´s son in London Ontario owned. I believe each dealer in Canada (and US?) got one each. Not big sellers but I loved mine, even joined the XV920R club (few members here and there in Canada). After a while though I traded it though for a Suzuki GS1000. Now on Sept 9 2011, I brought home another XV920RH needing some tender care but looking forward to hitting the road again next summer. Thanks so much for your great and useful site!
