    looks like an 85 honda xl250 with the RFVC engine.(if the seat is blue,black seats were on the 84)although i could be mistaken it may be a 350 but my bet would be on the small bore 250,

    Yeah, what's happening here ?? Isn't this Bagwan dude the one who started the commune in eastern Oregon, and had a following of of hundreds of pajama - wearing hippies running after him ? I believe his last name was Rajneesh. I don't know about motorcycles but he did have a collection of Mercedes sedans. Weird group.

    Yup. That's the dood, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, changed to "Osho" after being kicked out of the US for a number of reasons including sex with a 13 year old daughter of some of his followers.
    Chandra Mohan Jain was his real name.

    Edit; BTW, they were Rolls Royces, 83 of them IIRC

    Yeah, Bagwan has been sort of a long running joke with some guys I know. Once upon a time a family friend got a really good deal on rent because a couple of these pajama wearing hippies up and left their place and everything in it to go to the commune. They had pictures of Bagwan all over their house in crazy places. Like inside of cabinets and stuff. While printing off pictures of him from google to tape to stuff, I ran across Bagwan posing with dual sport. I thought someone here would know what it was.

    I have been reading advrider this summer after getting a DR350. I originally got around to joining because there was something I wanted to chime in on, but then I had to wait to get approved to post and all. Then Bagwan became post 1.
