Wanted to get a rz500 from canada and swap decals(since you couldn't have they on street in us).
Well, don't tell the boyz at the Marcus Dairy that in the mid 80's before it got way too popular, there would always be 3 or four RZ 500s, a coupla RG500 'zookis, sometimes even a Rothman Honda V3 . Then one weekend some guys from NHTSA and the EPA came round, taking liense plate numbers. Dang, always wanted a RG 500, too.
BTW, while there maay be some dumbass bikes being built, let's remember that the worst bike is still better than most cages. But you can haul a HD in a pickup truck.
