    I was in CA at the time, the GSX-R 50 and the YSR 50 were both popular. Both of the dealers near me had them in stock and saw a few on the streets.

    Man, just beautiful. Nostalgia is a powerful drug for sure. When I took delivery of my 87 I hadn't yet sold the 86 VFR. I remember vividly the feeling of just incredible, everything. The guages not even centered in the foam, the choke lever straight off of the carbs like a dirt bike, the petcock for reserve the same, so small and just business. These things on the Honda were designed with much more fit and finish in mind. No plastic dash to hide the wires behind the clocks. The dealer had installed a stainless Supertrapp exhaust and his son had been riding the bike for about a month, he sold it to me as new with full warranty. The way that thing pulled was intoxicating and the gearbox was butter. IMG_20190503_171153774.jpg IMG_20190503_171406733.jpg

    Great looking bikes! I am trying to find an OEM exhaust for my '86 1100, they are as rare as rocking horse crap.

    You folks pulling out the old school pics brings back great memories, thanks!

    I had a sweet spot for the 91's, had one back in the early 90's, then later in life bought one to restore and during the process ended up buying a complete 2nd 91 as a spare, good times! :-)

    Someone local has a used low mileage 2013 GSX-R 750 for sale at a good price.

    Anything to look for or watch out for on that year model?

    Don't do it, there must be another way to have both the RC and the Gixxer!

    I wanted to like the pic, but didn't want that to be taken as I support you getting rid of the RC, I do not! :nah

    I'm supposed to be thinning the herd going into retirement.
    Fortunately the wife is very understanding.
    Millage is low but I had the fork internals replaced with Ohlins valving and have never came to grips with them. Maybe Ill keep the RC-51,
    And move along my ZRX1200R project.
    Still don"t
    know what to replace the GSXR10000 with!

    Yes, do that, don't sell the RC. :-)

    As for the Gixxer replacement, have you looked at the 17-19 CBR1000RR's? I absolutely love my 18SP, comes from Honda with Ohlins, Brembo's, quick shifter up and down with autoblip, TFT display, etc, nice bit of kit for sure and now some good prices on new leftovers at dealers.

    Checked em out, lil more cramped than the GSXR. Might just get another GSXR-1000R.
    Really want the replacement to have cornering ABS. Would also like semi active suspension.
