01/09/11 - Happy New Year again, everyone.  I'm still here, this site is still here, my little Radian is still here, and ya know what?  The Yamaha Radian turns Twenty Five years old this year!  Depending on ones interpretation, I suppose that means one could call a 1986 Radian in good condition either an antique or a classic.  I for myself prefer Classic.  In any case, Happy 25th Birthday, Yamaha Radian!

01/09/11 - Bruce's 86 Radian - Bruce sent these photos of his awesome 1986 Radian.  He's done a heck of a lot of work on it, and it looks fantastic.  Nicely done, Bruce.  Thanks for sharing!

02/27/11 - Jefferson's Radian - Jefferson sent some photos of the Radian he bought new in 1986.  One of them was taken on prom night showing him wearing his white tux.  Cool, Jefferson!  Thanks for sharing.

03/13/11 - John R's Radian - John has restored and customized a '89 Radian.  He fitted it with a V-Max headlight and has made some other changes to make a beautiful bike.  Thanks, John!

03/13/11 - Athan's Radian - Athan sent some very impressive shots of him with his '86 Radian.  These are outstanding photos!  Thank you very much, Athan!

04/03/11 - Jeff H's Radian - Jeff and his wife finished restoring a 1989 Radian and sent a few pictures.  Check out the cool paint, mirrors, and the seat cover his wife made!  Thanks, Jeff!

05/08/11 - Shaz's Radian - Shaz sent a link to a webpage showing his tricked out bike as well as before and after pictures.  Look, Ma!  No back end!  Check out his cool Radian!

05/08/11 - Bill W's Radian - Bill sent some very nice photos showing how he mounted an FZ oil cooler to his Radian.  That's a great idea.  Thanks for sharing, Bill!

05/08/11 - Shaun's Radian - Shaun has a Radian in the UK, and it is beautiful.  Check out the color scheme.  The seat matches perfectly.  He's also going to get one of those new Predator exhausts, and that will surely look great.  Thanks, Shaun!  I look forward to seeing pics with the new pipes!

05/15/11 - Griff's Radian - Griff sent some pictures of his newly purchased Radian.  It already had the pod filters and was properly jetted and runs great.  That's not an easy task, so already one step ahead!  Thanks, Griff!

05/15/11 - John L's Radian - John's Radian is for sale!  It is in absolutely beautiful condition, and even has an original Yamaha fairing.  He's looking for a bike a bit larger, so this could be a great opportunity for someone in his area (Lawton, Oklahoma - 70 miles Southwest of Oklahoma City).

05/30/11 - John L's Radian - John's Radian is sold!  Congratulations, John.  You'll have a blast with your new Honda 919!  Congratulations also to Chris C. You'll have a blast with your new Yamaha Radian!
