I have Pulled Stephanie

Ok so Stephanie is not some lovely young lady, more is the pity her name is Stephanie due to her number plate “J85STF”; which makes her the first vehicle I have ever owned with a name. She is a Yamaha SR 125. Azz, Betty and I went to look at her on Saturday, on Sunday she was […]

Yamaha SR125

The Bike that Azz and I looked at today in Carterton is a Yamaha SR125; mine does not look like the one to the Right. The SR125 is sold as a learner or commuter bike, the page for the Yamaha SR125 on the manufacturers site states: Easy to manoeuvre, simple to use and featuring an electric starter […]
