    I noticed that over in thumpers there is an ongoing thread about first year KTM 620 Adventures... keeping track of who has one of the "first year" bikes ...

    So, obviously we need the same thing here for R80G/S's
    Here's a link to the micapeak R80G/S registry...LINK
    Add a post (with a picture!) listing the last four numbers of your R80G/S and I'll update the list below:

    SOLO LOBO,

    Thanks! That was just when I was finishing up the resto! It did a couple of shows, and has gone through a couple of incarnations and now is a Rider! This is how it looks today!

    I bet theres not many more than this on the entire site. Out of 8.5 thousand members on UKGSer there's only around 15 Mono's. Why not have a thread for all the mono owners to post?
