    Question...The 8th place on both RWB Anniversaries are 6. are the rest of you guys RWBs 8th digit a 6?
    Comment...It would have been cool (water under the bridge) to have each bike have a production number stamped or drawn/painted on.

    Would it be possible for somebody to create a batch of well made decals or something to be permanent (Plaque) to be placed on the bike, helmet, or key chain. Then have the members bid on the number they want and the money go to an injured motorcyclist related charity.
    Each member that have a RWB anniversary edition, donate to having it made. Production Design cost. Everybody approve the design and then either order the Number of your Vin or Bid on the 1 of # style.

    It's just an idea.

    Yes, On my first RWB and on my current one, the 8th digit is indeed "6". Nice break down of the VIN.

    92 is definitely early in the production run. I love the white rims. I did that with my first RWB and I'm pulling the rims right now to do the same for my current one. Welcome.

    It is always nice to have a 2nd chance and finding one with that kind of mileage is a bonus. I assume it is like new. Post up some pictures when you get it.

    It looks pretty nice, however, it had a no speed put down that scraped RH crank cover and scraped the Tupperware behind the turn signal. I figure a replacement cover and some careful plastic work it will be minimal. Actually that's why he's getting rid of it. Too much bike for him. He's used to dirt bikes. Ones loss is another's gain. Really looking forward to keeping this one. It has no cases. Should I go with the V35 Givi or stock if I want to shell out mucho denero?

    In my opinion, the OEM cases look like they were actually made for and belong on the bike. They look great on it and blend nicely. All other cases look like an afterthought. They are expensive, but this is where I got my cases from. 20% off retail with free shipping. Considering this bike is a keeper for you, it is a small investment to do it right.

    Your shemales have abs and pecs too. I think some of the pecs are plastic.

    Up date on the repurchase Interceptor.

    Flew out to Houston to pick up the bike. Everything checked out I loaded up and took off. First 100 miles rain. After that pretty hot on I-10.
    I asked if everything is good on the bike tire pressure etc. owner said yes. I found out I rode all the way home on tires inflated to @22 lbs/sq in. In all my days I never heard of any thing like it. I should have checked it out. I know better. The most amazing thing is nothing adverse happened. The bike felt a little splashy but I chalked it up to suspension adjusted a little on the light side. I was thankful I came out of that one alive.

    Update two...

    I went with the GIVI hard cases and liners. Got the quick release racks as well. Not hard to bring back to a no rack look. Only small mounting tabs are visible. A couple of pick showing the Helibars throttlemeister sargent seat and lever addons.

    You bought another one, Stewartj239? What'd I miss? Last I heard you sold off the stable and jumped to dirt!

    I did. I bought my 2nd RWB last October with just 3K miles on it. I applied many of the exact same changes over the winter that I made to the 1st one. I couldn't stay away.

    Yep. I see some of the same things you did to the last one. Sleepless nights, huh? Do you miss any of the others ones too, or just the 800?

    The 800 is the only one that I was really connected to and is the one I wanted back. The '86 line up that I had was great, but just so much work to keep going. I honestly do not miss them. Here's the thread from last fall for my current RWB.

    Hey everyone. This is my first post.
    I picked up a very nice RWB this fall serial #691 which i believe is Stuartj239's old bike. I've added a set of LeoVinci pipes to it and really love the bike.
    Unfortunately it's in the cellar for the winter now.
