Hi-Viz, Thanks for that reminder of things past, never to be captured again... by us old farts! I have a NC motorcycle tag on my current bike that is older than some of you young pups. GEEZ, kick a guy's cane out from under him, will you?

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question.

It was a 650 until a certain RPM when the boost pressure came up...... Then your world came alive...... a little tricky in the corners.... you had to shift to stay out of the boost, or shift to stay in it.

My mostest favoriteist bike ever!!!

Don't worry about old age - it doesn't last that long.

Wouldn't old fart wisdom in a young pups body be a winning combo eh!

Sounds like a hoot, similar to a two stroke. Never a dull ride I'm sure. The only prob with those older bikes was their wet weight, esp as they had bigger tanks back then. But we didnt know any different so ignorance was bliss I guess.

The bikes keep getting lighter, and I keep getting heavier... Seems to even out in the end.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question.

Now that is a cool pic... love the "motorcycle boots"..

The problem with bikes aimed at first time riders is that first time riders buy them..
