No.4 Yamaha RXS100

After a little gap in my biking history it came to the point where I needed some cheap transport and I couldn’t afford to run a car. I bought the RXS second hand from the local Yamaha dealer on finance.

I thrashed it mercilessly on this waste ground, it was faster than the RV which was good, but the CD’s road tyres and on-road suspension…
