... But it's going to cost you! Fortunately, your hard-earned cash will end up doing untold good for Riders for Health.
For the past 18 months or so, Don Emde has been building a unique Yamaha YZF-R1. With the assistance of Valentino Rossi and his designer Aldo Drudi, as well as a host of motorcycling greats such as Roland Sands Design, Yamaha USA, Ohlins, Akrapovic, AGV and many more (see this page for a full list of the people behind the project), the former Daytona 200 winner has created a one-off Yamaha painted with Valentino Rossi's "Five Continents" helmet design. To top it all, the bike has been signed by Valentino Rossi himself.
The bike is to go up for auction at Bonhams this Saturday November 13th, with all proceeds from the sale going toward supporting Riders for Health, helping provide primary healthcare to remote locations in Africa. Don Emde and his team are hoping to raise at least $50,000 for the bike, and given the list of components used, that seems like it could be at the very low end of what the bike could fetch.
So if you're looking for a new motorcycle, wanted something completely unique, and would like to see something positive done with your investment, there is no better option than to put in a bid for the bike.
