just bought 1982 Vision
« on: September 13, 2002, 12:02:51 PM »

I have owned a 1982 Vision for about a week. I bought it from a Lutheran pastor (of all people) who didn't ride it much, who says he got it from someone who commuted with it. It has 6500 miles and appears to be in good shape overall--the pastor had a Yamaha mechanic go over it and tune it, change the fluids, fix a few things.

I just wanted to ask if there's anything in particular I should look for or do to the bike. I've never owned a bike before and just took the class, so I'm completely in the dark. I bought it because my wife was tired of me riding hers and $1100 was what I wanted to spend. :)
