FYI, "Raven" Yamaha owners...

Just an FYI out there to you "Raven" Yamaha owners. Your bike is friggin BLACK!

Or should I start saying that I ride an RC51 that is "Winning Red" and "Metallic Silver." Nope! It's just red & silver.

Sorry for the rant, but it's become one of my top pet peeves...

The difference between a Ford and a Chevy is a completely different level of differentness than the difference between a black R1 and a blue R1...comparing a Ford to a Chevy would be like comparing a Suzuki to a Yamaha, not a Yamaha to a Yamaha.

Kinda reminds me of an old joke between me and a friend of mine...

What are 2 phrases you'll never see together in a used cycle add?

1. Katana For sale
2. Never been laid down...

whoa, settle down there buddy. Don't go hurting my bikes feelings. :icon_bigg

Yamaha named that bike "Raven" not us riders! So go to them. None of us don't think our bike is black. It just has a name. :icon_bigg

And seriously, if this is one of your pet peeves, you have way too much time on your hands worrying about other people's bikes. Just because you ride an Rc-51 doesn't mean you have to be mad at us.
