I bought this 89 fj1200 from a friend for $1700. Its in Cherry cond with 38k original miles. Runs awesome. Aftermkt brakes and exhaust. The thing is a rocket ship. Scary fast. I baught it thinking maybe selling in spring to make some $$ but just love this bike and have decided to keep.

Yes, I know this is an old thread but...do you guys get this baby in the States? If I had to part ways with my beloved Rex, I'd own one of these

The GPZ750 Turbo is the bike that got me hooked on motorcycles while a teen. I still want one:

I actually think that is a pretty good interpretation of what a police force would be using in a post apocalyptic world. Probably more accurate than the KZ1100 Goose used in the movie.

That being said, I really really want to build a blacked and gold KZ1100 with the same fairing as Goose's MFP bike. I'd keep a 2 person saddle on it though and add in some aluminum panniers. I think it would make a really sweet retro/custom sport tourer.

I also have to admit, that if the world were to go the hell and I had to choose a motorcycle as my only means of transportation I would probably just go with a first gen KLR650. It probably is the ultimate post apocalypse motorcycle.

Not sure if you guys are familiar with Stone. This is the movie that started it all for us way back in the seventies. Try to ignore the bad acting and strange accents....LOL!!
