    Fastest stock bike in the world!

    I looked on Wikipedia for info on a bike I found on Craigslist, and found this: "The Yamaha TY80 is a trials styled motorcycle produced by Yamaha Motor Company from 1974-1984. When new it was capable of around 260 mph." Wow! I want one of those!
    I wonder if it gets a thousand mpg while doing it?

    Wow, went that fast and only had 72cc and a 4 speed. Our modern emission standards are really choking our engines!

    Specs[edit]
    Capacity: 720cc
    Type: Trials
    Manufacturer: Yamasaki
    Stroke: 5-stroke
    Made: 1874-1984
    Gear Change: 14-speed, foot change manual
    Tyres: Back: 3x14in Front: 2.5x16in

    You can click on the SAVE button on the bottom of that link, after making changes, but afterwards, it reverts back to the former info.
    And now instead of trials, it says "duel sport." It's a jousting bike!

    Everyone except scientologists, actually. Everyone from the Church of Scientology has been banned from editing anything on Wikipedia.

    Also it is a misconception that anyone can change a Wikipedia article, you can only submit changes to an article- which then is actually changed by an administrator.

    The mach 0.3 TY80 is most likely just a typo in conjunction with an oversight.

    I have seen some quite humorous stuff on wikipedia though- but it's usually fixed fairly quick.

    I agree that it is a misconception. I'm actually a big fan of Wikipedia.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
