Unhappy

On Thursday, April 5th, at approximately 2pm, a tragedy occurred. A horrible fire claimed the lives of 55 young machines, who's only glimpse of life had been of the road just beyond the showroom windows. We mourn the loss of these machines who resided at Spokane Yamaha in Spokane, WA.

These bikes were some of the finest of today's young motorcycles. Sportbikes, cruisers, standards, atv's, and even hardy dirtbikes fell victim to the hellish flames.

It is a dark day for Spokane riders, but we must stand strong in the face of this terrible tragedy. We must go on, riding and racing in remembrance of those lost.

No human injuries

We wouldn't have written the post the way we did if there had been people hurt.

One more batch of Yamahas that will never get to have the rear rim disintegrate while riding down the highway.

No Kawi's were present, therefore escaping the terrible fate. (Thankfully, no Honda's were present either! )
