It's a hoot. Doesn't go that fast though due to a tight ratio gearbox and low gearing, but it gets there quickly.

It is loud and obnoxious, and only really happy when you are hammering it

Sounds like a girl I used to "date". (Insert witty emoticon here)

Making a windshield for the nighthawk. I made a fiberglass base to cover the stock shield. Its about 2-3 inches higher than stock. I will add a clear shield when i am done with the base. It needs to be sanded and smoothed and painted. I rode it with just the base on and it made a noticeable difference in reducing wind buffeting.

Kind regards, Bambi

1985 V65 Sabre. 200k + miles on it now, sitting in storage, waiting for it's trip to move to Hawaii and another 200k miles. This bike could not be better suited for where I live, though I will ditch the knobbies here. Rode it year-round in Alaska.



In 200k miles I have - changed the clutch several times- get usually about 50k miles out of them when not drag racing it. Changed the cams x1. Oil mod at about 50k miles. fork brace, three wire mod, corbin seat- which isn't lasting as long as stock, but more comfy- Keiser bags, which the brackets will be replaced next, gear mod. Lots of cleaning and regular maintenance- shock mod, race tech gold inserts mod. and springs.



Put the crappy plastics on it for winter-studded tire riding. Here it is with R1 Sjaak on a winter ride in Alaska

I am planning an extensive conversion of the unsuspecting RG250 into a Scrapper (AKA dual sport) for the Scrapheap Adventure Ride here in Oz.
www.scrapheapadventureride.com.au We raise funds for Down Syndrome NSW. Almost $225,000 over the last 4 years.



My previous Scrapheap build was the XR460/4
