Yep - read about the launch here in Oz, last month?, have to have a look & get back ya,
Just got back from my ride this weekend to the 'Thunder' rally on the northern tablelands of NSW, my smugmug account is playing silly buggers @ the moment so no photos just yet
Have to pull 'White Beast' down - serious rattle in the top end, got home OK, but won't be going to the 'Trout' rally next weekend, bummer
Cheers

Baza, You will have to take the honda 500 to the "Trout" rally. Looks like just a afternoon of time in the shop and she will be "Ready"??
Any news about the top-end of your 650?? BIG ED XT&TT&XS WR FAN!!!

Want to pull the Honda down & get the cam bearings done properly, send to the states & get it done, instead of the usual white metal which is standard fair,
Too busy with mowing & getting ready for the fire season just around the corner, already had big fires down on the coast, we've been lucky so far
Started the year well with rallys but dropped out a bit with other committments,
Haven't had a chance to put a spanner on either XS yet, so the mystery still awaits!!, think maybe the rocker arms & shafts may be likely candidates for replacement???
Cheers

Back on page 3 = not good, here's a few 'oldies' from my days in '70's

mud fights!, blue & gold TX's ['73]

when purple was cool - still is!

my old TX ['73], with a 750cc kit, the one 650 that was a pain, broke down on a regular basis
Cheers
