Finally! My own Motorcycle!

Just a quicky this time:

I scoured Craigslist for weeks trying to find a bike that would meet my needs. I was prepared to buy a bike, then it'd get sold... then another... then another. Finally I found this gem!

She's a 1982 Yamaha XS400 Seca (XS400RJ). She might be 30 years old but only has 10K on her. She definitely needs some TLC, but I think it's a simple enough bike that I can learn quite a bit. 

Anyway, I'll post more pics as I get things fixed up, but the photo above is what she looked like just before I rode her home.
