If you’ve been itching for a new Yamaha YZF-R1, this might be your chance to pick up a special edition R1S free of charge. Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., has announced the “R1S Urban Ops Sweepstakes.”What’s the catch? None that we can see. One winner will be drawn at random, and the prize will come in the form of an exclusive 2016 Yamaha YZF-R1S. The winner’s R1S will come complete with an assortment of Genuine Yamaha Accessories, aftermarket upgrades, unique graphics, and custom lighting.
The Yamaha R1 “Urban Ops’”R1S will be outfitted with the following accessories:
Genuine Yamaha Accessories Folding Clutch and Brake Levers
Pirelli Diablo Rosso III Tires (with a special gift of three years or three sets of tires, whichever comes first)
Many R1S owners would be opening their wallets for upgrades along those lines, but there is one aspect of this bike that you can’t buy, and that would be the digital-camo wrap. Yamaha sprang for some red power-coated wheels, and illuminated Yamaha logos emblazoned across the fuel tank.Fans have a chance to win the bike by entering the “R1S Urban Ops Sweepstakes” online, and can find social media posts by searching #R1SUrbanOps.If you’d like a shot at winning the bike, visit Yamaha R1S Urban Ops Sweepstakes.

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
