    True, but they had to be good riders to be fast.
    The same speed on a modern bike is ho-hum boringly easy.

    You still have to be good to be fast , regardless , a monkey can twist a throttle on a straight road.

    Feh. A GB500 is already the textbook definition of a cafe bike. You can only fuck it up by screwing with it.

    and screw with it they did. It was far more functional, and better looking, in its stock configuration.
    The only thing the GB500 needs/deserves is removal of the emission control plumbing, more power and better suspension.
