Turbo Tim says, "Ride 'em – don't hide 'em!"
"Several times in the past 25 years I’ve considered replacing the Turbo, but I enjoy its rarity and I can’t find another motorcycle with the wind protection, ability to comfortably cover 500 miles of two-lane roads in a day, and the addictive “stronger as it goes faster” power of a turbocharged engine. Even today, the Yamaha Turbo offers a thrilling ride every time you twist the throttle - and have the guts to hold it there." Winding Road Motorcycle Times (March-April '07).
