1980 Yamaha XS650SG
|Sub Model (Optional):||SPECIAL|
During 1979/1980 I was deployed aboard the aircraft carrier USS Coral Sea.
I was flying F-4 Phantoms in Marine Squadron VMFA 323 "Death Rattlers".
After the failed Rescue Attempt of the Iranian Hostages, we pulled into the port ofSubic Bay, Phillipines for some rest and relaxation.
I purchased my 1980 Yamaha XS650SG [650 Special] at the NAVY EXCHANGE Subic Bay on 12 May 1980.
It was still in the shipping crate, partially disassembled.
I had it put on the hangar deck and brought it home to MCAS El Toro, where I lived on base.
I had the Yamaha dealer, Award Motion in Costa Mesa, Ca assemble it.
Some of the miles are from driving to TOP GUN at NAS Miramar and Weapons and the Tactics Instructor Course [WTI] at MCAS Yuma every week for 6 weeks each, but most came from going almost every week for 6 months during an El Nino winter to F/A 18 Transition Training at NAS Lemoore.
I stopped riding it in 1983 with 9,800 miles on it. I filled the gas tank and engine, to include the top of the cylinders with preservative oil and plugged all openings.
I put it back on the road in November 2011, and it now has 10,939 miles on it.
