    I thought about it but it's a lot of coin for a couple of seconds. I think I like the system I have now. squirt bottle with gatorade in it and goos taped to the side. A buddy does the gas from a regular race jug.

    One of the local vintage guys says that he can make a 80 husky go almost as good as a modern bike. He said whoops and anything involving the clutch would hold him back.

    I liked the 9-3 sedan that I had, but it was a cherry low mileage example with 55,000 kms (that's like 34,000 miles in capitalist countries and England) I had a company Audi A4 at the time, and I preferred the Saab as a driver, better seats, better handling, better motor.
    I had a bunch of 9-3 Convertibles, but those were simply renamed 900's. It's one of those rare machines that is more desirable with a manual transmission

    Oh I believe it's the rider and not the bike.

    And I believe that a skilled rider on an older bike can wipe the floor with a lesser rider on a new bike.

    But.... the same rider on and newer bike is probably going to ride a course/track/trail, better/faster/smoother than that same rider on an old vintage bike.

    Not a statement that will hold true 100% of the time, but probably for most of the time.:thumbup:nod

    I love passing people on the 950. It's made a couple of people mad.

    He won the Desert 100 back in the 80s and has won the vintage class a couple of times since. I almost bought a 82 KTM 495 from him.
