That was my ATGATT too. The Bell Star 90 had about as much room to look out as a medieval knight's helmet and probably weighed as much too. My Honda 500-4 had six-over forks and 'hangers and open pipes with Snuff-r-nots that you could close in the presence of LE activities. Back then the dream was to one day have a Superglide.
