Friday bike

Yamaha AG 200

Always loved the look of these. The Yamaha AG 200 is sold in Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Africa and South America. It's a fairly basic 200cc single with front and rear racks, engine and handlebar protection bars, and a fully enclosed and protected chain.
Sold to farmers and NGOs, it provides rugged off road ability with a high degree of 'crashability'. It's been in Yamaha's range since at least 2002, so spares and owner experience shouldn't be too much of a problem, very useful when you might be far from a dealer.
A couple of features I like - a propstand on each side with suitable large foot to allow easy parking on uneven and soft ground, and it has a 'lock' on the clutch lever to allow you to stop it out of gear without having to find neutral.
Why can't we get bikes as practical as this - I'd love one!
