Yamaha R3

Riding impressions on a Yamaha R3 race bike.

I had the opertunity to ride a freshly prepared Yamaha R3 race bike at a track day out at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway and made this video to give my impression of the bike. Not to give it all away, but the bike was super fun to ride even though it had much less power than the other bikes I've reviewed so far.

The R3 is so light a flickable, you don't really have to slow down much for the corners and it is really a blast to ride. Plus it is super fun to pass other riders on liter bikes when you only have less than 40hp to use!
