Anyone get a chance to ride one of these before. It's the 1900 Yamaha Raider. Saw one the other day and really liked the looks.

1900...??? No I don't remember back that far...lol... Really though, can't say that I have seen one, it is a very sharp lookin bike though, anyway I like its looks...
Looks like it's very low seated, but I don't see a radiator, so I suspect it is air or oil cooled, yeah looks pretty darn good...
Maybe a bit bigger and heavier than I would want though...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

I believe they are air cooled pushrod type engines. Closest japanese engine to a Harley V-Twin. I thought I read once that HD consulted Yamaha on the EVO engine and Yamaha took some from them as well.

My uncle has one and he loves it. He picked it up new 09 on clearance out the door under $10k. And yes, it's another HD wannabe.
