Radian Articles -
Cycle World September 1989. Wow. It's been
well over a year since I've posted a Radian article.
I'm running out.

shape. This one has a sharp looking fairing, too.
Very cool indeed! Thanks, John!

RSS feed display from the
Yahoo Radian Group has been
- Joshua's Radian -
Joshua in West
Virginia just got his first bike. It's an '86
Radian and it sat in a barn for 20 years. It only
has 246 miles on it! Thanks, Joshua!

five years old today. Thank all of you for your
participation and for sending all of the pictures :-)
- Radian Articles -
Motorcycle Classics - July/August 2009. Thanks
guys for giving me a heads up on this one :-)
- Russell's Radian - Ok,
nothing new here about the Radian. Maybe I'm a traitor
;-) but I still have the Radian and will never
sell or trade it. Here are some pictures of my new
- Daniels Radian -
Daniel has a 1988 stock Yamaha Radian and wanted to
share a few photos. Thank you very much, Daniel!
- Kim's Radian - Kim in
Denmark sent these photos of her 1989 Radian. It's
really cool to know these bikes are all over the world,
and the owners are very proud of them. Thank you,
- Wow, this has been a rough couple of weeks, but things
are getting back to normal. Riding season is back
and so am I, and now I'm behind. This isn't a blog
though, so without further adieu, here's some new
stuff... And thanks, Rich (Cheese) once again :-)
- Radian Links - Rich
(Cheese, on the Yahoo Radian group) sent a really cool
link to a video of the making of a Yamaha Radian
poster that was made back in the 80's. To think
something like that would surface after over twenty
years is pretty amazing. Now I want one of those
posters! Thanks, Rich :-)
- Adrian S's Radian
- Adrian from Holland bought a Radian about 6 months
ago. He wanted to give his Radian a cafe racer
look, and I think he succeeded brilliantly! Well
done, Adrian! Thank you for sharing the photos :-)
- Ivo's Radian - Ivo
from The Netherlands (yes, two Radian owners in a row
from The Netherlands) just bought a 1990 Radian.
He said they were never sold in Holland. His was
imported from the USA in 2002 and only has 3100 miles on
it. Congratulations, Ivo! Thanks for sharing
the photos :-)
- Cory's Radian - Cory
in Fairmont, West Virginia just got his first bike, and
it's a 1986 red Radian. My Radian is also an '86
red one :-) Congratulations, Cory! Have fun,
be careful, and thank you for sharing the photos!
- Bud's Radian - Bud
sent these pictures of the Radian he's been customizing.
With a very unique fairing / headlight setup, belly pan
/ scoop, and custom side panels, it will surely turn
heads. Thanks, Bud!
Brad P's Radian -
Brad bought a 1990 Radian, and it's his first street
bike. You'll have a blast with it, Brad.
- Juan C's Radian -
Juan C. in Guatemala has a super smooth nice 1990
Radian... Check out the paint job, bar-end mirrors, and
round headlight. Nicely done, Juan! Thanks!
- Julie's Radian -
Julie near Sioux Falls, South Dakota has a really nice
1987 Radian for sale as well as a really cool 1986 Fazer
for sale. Yep, a FAZER! If you don't know
what that is, take a look! If it were close to me,
I'd probably snatch it up for myself :-) Very
cool. A link to her contact info will be on her
page on this website until she requests it to be
removed. Thanks, and good luck, Julie!
Andy C's Radian - Ok, we've seen some really cool
modified Radians, but Andy has done a heck of a job with
this one. This is probably the most Radical Radian
yet! Outstanding, Andy! If
Crazy Jerry saw
this, his HEAD would explode! Thanks for sharing!
- Billy's Radian -
Billy picked up an '87 Radian and has already begun to
make it his own. He's cleaned up the rear end, put
straight bars on it, and installed LED signals. He
plans to put dually headlights on it soon as well.
Looks great, Billy! Thanks!
- Mike M's Radian -
Mike M. bought an '86 Radian and rebuilt the thing from
the ground up. If you'd like to see a clean custom
rebuilt Radian, check out this one!

Luke sent a picture of his black Radian. He plans
to convert his Radian into a cafe racer. Check out
the inverted bars. Hang on tight! Thanks,
- Justo-23's 86 -
Justin sent a few pictures of his '86 Radian. He's
stripping it down for restoration and customization, and
even has a webpage to show his progress. That will
be a fun project. Thanks, Justin!

fairing. There aren't very many of those around.
