After I sold my DT2, a couple of years went by and I got the urge to get another bike. I loved Brit bikes, but was not too impressed with their reliability. I liked the Yamaha 650 Special, because it looked like a typical Brit bike, and sounded like one. I purchased this 650 Special, new from Cycle World on Dundas for $2499. It was a good bike and it served me well. Sold a few years later to a friend.
