I have that problem every time a first-gen GS500 comes up for sale.

Continue resisting, technology has come a long way since then.

I had a '80 GS1000G I bought new.
Same bike, bigger balls.
Mine looked just like this 850 but I added a color matched WindJammer w/ lowers and the same rack on back.
Much better than the '78 XS 1100 it replaced. It would even go around corners with a passenger!!!
A supurb ride for the times!

I can't explain it.

I've had a fascination with Urals for about three years now. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be going the sidecar route anytime soon, with how much highway riding I do.

Although, there is the Solo ST now...

Ural

I like the Ural's too... I just think it might be too slow (60MPH?) If it could sustain a 70MPH without wheezing, I'd be all over that!

The solo ST can do that, it just isn't a sidecar rig.

I want a late Nighthawk 750. I love naked UJMs, I've already got one, a XJR1300, but it's too big for everyday use so I only use her for 2up riding and long trips. The Nighthawk would be a perfect all around bike.

I just haven't been able to find a reasonably priced one here, all of them are either old and abused or not so old but stupidly overpriced.

You know it's more than a fad when Honda enters the e-bike fray.




I think we're looking at an important motorcycle, here.
