    It all started beautifully with Brand New VFR..a bike way ahead of its time.

    Then I meet this guy coming out of church...drunk and he turned left in front of me at 50mph.
    Which lead to this..[​IMG]

    and this [​IMG]

    and some more...[​IMG]

    and I survived by going right over top of car wearing this. [​IMG]

    Circa 1984 Hondaline Leathers..completely trashed but I walked away after sliding 100' down the road, no broken bones, no missing skin..the mega bruises came later but all in all a "freebee" for me. I was on new bike next summer!!!

    Sweet! I had that same damn bike. Got out of college in '83, got married, got a job and swapped my GS750 for one the next spring. Loved it - my wife and I rode it all over the place!

    its was a very sweet and uber fast bike for the time....however, 3000kms is all I got out of her.
