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!

Hallo Manfred,
ich kenne Deine Seite schon lange und stöbere hin und wieder bei Dir rum. Habe als junger Mann im Alter von 20 jahren meine 1. Tr1 erworben, das war 1986.
Mit den Jahren habe ich dann gewechselt und drei Generationen der FJ1100-1200 gefahren. Als ich dan Vater wurde habe ich das Motoradfahren erst mal an den Nagel gehängt.
Da mich die Erinnerungen an die TR nie wirklich losgelassen hatten habe ich mir dann vor drei Jahren ein serhr gut erhaltenes Exemplar in Göttingen organisiert, nur 13.000Km. Das Gefuel ist das gleiche wie damals.
Moechte Deiner Komune gerne beitreten und an euren umfangreichen Erfahrungen teilhaben.

Hoffe das ist kein Problem fur Dich und wuerde mich ueber eine kurze Antwort freuen.

Viele Gruesse

PS. Englisch kann ich auch, schreibe halt mal lieber auf deutsch

Good evening Manfred. an excellent website. You are obviously a TR1 fanatic and your enthusiasm and hard work benifits us lesser mortals in so many ways.
I have recent completed a 1988 Honda Transalp 600v rebuild and wanted another V twin so have aquired a 1985 TR1 with 38000miles on the clock. It runs well but has a few issues, which I will be tackling in the coming months, with the help of your website a hopefully the feedback from your websites many knowledgable members.
I have had many different bikes over the years and although I am now getting on in years, refuse to go down the four wheel route and it is the enthusiasm and comradeship of people like yourself who will keep me on two wheels for many years to come, hopefully.
Again thank you.
I am hoping to join your site as a member but am not very computer wise so I will have to see. Best wishes and good health. Derek

Hi Manfred

Great homepage! I bought my first TR1 in 1987 and now 23 years, a marriage and three kids later, I am about to buy my second TR1 and was looking for info when I found this great site.

All the best from Denmark.

Hello from Austria.

I found your hompage in the web and was happy to get a lot of interesting informations during the TR1.
I buyed my TR1 1989 with 8000 km, because my girlfriend says, this is a good, heavy and very nice bike.
In the last 22 years i drived every year some km, but in all the years my bike reached max. 43ooo km.
I´m happy to be owner of a TR1, because she´s a beautifull old bike. Each of my friends say, that this bike is´n t 30 years old.
Sorry that my english is not so good, but this homepage is very good and i will send you good wishes from austria - leobersdorf.

best remarks

A very good site - clearly a labour of love. And very informative about the marque. Have learned more here than from the rest of the net!!!

Keep up the good work.

BTW - Motorradfahrer are not drivers, but Riders!! We are astride the beast, not caged by it.
Riders? Well, you are right. I´ll change my menu soon... ;-) Manfred

I had signed your guest book on the "old" site...I hope everything will be transfered soon...I´d like to add pictures of my bikes when the "new" site is completed...

Keep up the good work...These are "rare" motorcycles in the USA...They were only sold here in 1981 & 1982...And 1/2 of the ones imported for the ´82 model year were unsold and exported back out of the country...As best as I have been able to determine there were only about "980 warranty registrations" in the USA for the XV920RJ model... :-(
