I thought that might be a problem. Thank you.
I think this fits in this thread.
1989 Kawasaki Ninja 250 EX250
Does this count ?? More of a ST that a pure sport however.
My 2000 VFR is still going strong, approaching 115,000 miles.
I have decided to part with this much beloved bike. I would like some input into what it might be worth. Rumor is they are going up in price, but up to what? The bike is mostly original. What has been changed I have the OE parts for. I think the bike still looks beautiful but it does have 62k on it. It's a rare bike, only 1000 imported that year. I don't believe there is another one owner unmolested one in the country. Idealy I would like to find someone local that understands what it is but not sure how to find that person. Any though appreciated.

What stripped the bark off that tree?
The guys collecting the bark (cork). Every 10 years.
They strip the bark every ten years? It doesn't kill the trees? I was just noticing the one in the back right looks as though the bark is missing on that one to.
Sorry for the hijack!
Not mine, just admire it. Magnificent machine.
How is this for a blast from the past. Pic is from 1985.
Here is a 30 year old bike, pic taken this year.
Old lady belongs to my childhood partner in crime. I’m working to resto mine. He brought this up from a pair of literal basket bikes. If winter is good to me there will be 2 in the pic next spring.
Sweet! Love to see bikes that don't just suck, but BLOW!
(plus, red/black is one of the all time great color schemes for any motorcycle)
Actually, what I'd love to see right now is a modern turbo in maybe 350-450 cc size, coming in at <400 lbs. I bet that these days, with FI instead of carbs, electronic ignition, & a sophisticated CPU in charge of virtually all engine parameters, turbo lag could be tamed completely & fueling could be made seamless. I think any of the Japanese big 4 could come up with a 400cc mill that could produce 90+ HP & do it with a reliable, trouble free life span. Put some decent suspenders & brakes on it...NOW we got a party!
My friend has a couple orginal 82 Katanas. One's a nice survivor-rider. The other has some more current super sport goodies to be installed to modernize it a shade.
Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
