    If you stayed off instagram Portrait Paul then you could check in from time to time...
    I must say you have a beautiful family. My best friend has 3 girls who he calls his divas. Good kids. Also I must say that I could see you as an NYC cop based on your pictures.
    Black Chrome is bagged, blown and a pleasure to own.

    Hey Fx4 I had that same year VMAX, 1989 right? Mine almost pitched me off at 135mph. Got rid of it right after. Good looking bike though. Bought it brand new in July1989.

    That is a steal! What's wrong with it? One way to slow down the weaving/ wobble is put one size bigger front tire 120 vs 110 mm. Believe it or not Yamaha actually offset the rear wheel 10mm from the front, which causes the wandering wobble. Why they pulled that crap is beyond me. Problem is it's a fixed driveshaft so to my knowledge no adjustment. If you can correct it, it will keep you from that scary weave above 95 mph. Bike is capable of 145mph plus. Just my 2 cents from a member that had one!

    I appreciate those tips. I've heard the reason the rear wheel is offset is because of the drive shaft. I would very much love to eventually change it out to Superbike wheels and tires, maybe even convert to a chain.
    The only thing wrong with it is the second gear issue known to the VMAX. The guy I bought it from had gotten a quote from the local Honda shop to fix for $600. I found a very good how to thread, but looks very complicated and requires some special tools and for the engine to come out of the frame. I probably will just pay a shop eventually to fix it. Still that's only $1,600 invested.
    I've only been riding it yesterday and today. Got it inspected yesterday and insurance today, hopefully licensing after work. So I haven't had much time on it yet, I did get it up to 95 on the highway. Haven't done much rural Highway curves or anything yet. I've noticed it's pretty easy to ride though, I was pretty nervous about the weight and what I had heard about the wobble.

    I love this look
