We got off to that crazy start and it just got better and better. What a ride. Twenty-plus years later, I still feel like a 'tard for selling it. Paying rent is so overrated.
I currently own a 1976 RD400C w/ stage 2 setup. Bought new and road raced a1975 RD350 as a teen and early 20's. Always wanted a Gamma. Suppose it's a "grass is always greener" kind of thing.
