Great report as it does bring back some interesting honda riding memories.
That being said; for all the riders making comments about the good ole days, on their old bikes, wake the Frig Up!
I am very happy to ride farkled out MC's with uber suspension and heated grips blah blah blah; vice my old 400 twin that used to send such a servere buzz through the bars and up my arms that it would eventually cause temporary brain failure after just a few hours of spirited riding. Dam!
Thanks again for the great report, and do include some Laverda Pics as it sounds like a step up the evolutionary chain away from Brain Damaging rice rockets.
