My local bike shop in sunny Kidderminster has become a dedicated Yamaha dealer so they threw a bit of a shidig to celebrate...usual sort of stuff, Arai helemet servicing, raffles, pretty promotional girls wondering around, the latest Yamahas on display and available for test ride, crap local DJ

It was a busy day and they seemed to have a good turn out, I even blageed a go on a 2011 R1 so i was a happy chap!

Anyway a few pics...

This LC was teetering on the edge of being over done, but got away with it!

I test rode the latest R1 and loved it, despite some restrictive escorting really holding the speeds down. Fair enough. I will post seperately about this later in the week

Looks like a well organised fun day. We had a similar thing at powersport suzuki dealer (now sadly closed) a few years ago & it was great fun. Nice write up.
