Welcome to the Yamaha 650 Society's Home Page
Yes...there are other lovers of the Yamaha 650 Twin!
What a bike!
They don't make them like this anymore.
Bullet proof and a living classic!
The Yamaha 650 Society is dedicated to enhancing the motorcycling experience of our 600 member (and growing) organization. As a member, you'll receive the Yamaha 650 News every other month which is packed with information. Back issues are available that cover road tests, performance mods, technical infomation, restoration tips, parts and bikes for sale, items wanted...and much more!
There is a growing international interest in the 650. Besides having members in most of the states in the U.S., we are in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, England and New Zealand!
We also have the support of motorcycle shops that have earned the right to be Yamaha 650 Stores. These are shops that maintain a good reputation, provide reasonable prices to members and "talk" 650 Twins. However, if a store doesn't have something, a member probably does. Let us know what you need. Ads are free to members and there are lots of spares around since many 650 parts are interchangeable.Take note of our rallies!
- Land Between the Lakes Motorcycle Rally, Grand Rivers, KY.
- Wildcat Mountain rally in Westby, Wisconsin.
- The Smoky Mountain Rendezvous in Tennessee.
- West Virginia Mountain Rally
- Mid Ohio Vintage Motorcycle Days
