I remember this....
32 years on now...the machine has aged right along with it's target audience. First, it was a young man of a machine, a chick magnet, an edgy repli racer, a lean, mean, fighting machine, a superbike championship winning machine...Now, it's an old dude, has put on more than a few extra pounds, a lady hasn't looked at it in years, had to add bags to carry all the creature comforts and pills it can't leave home without, doesn't even follow racing anymore, trying desperately to rekindle that lost feeling, but sadly, only a couple years away from retirement. Growing old is not for the feint of heart, nor weak of mind.
I sold mine 10 years ago...miss that bike... I have a binder with just about every magazine road test on the 86 VFR750 that I kept when I sold my VFR.... any one interested make me an offer.
All of the above applies to me. Thanks for making me feel really, really old NCB!
I'm an older guy myself, Mr. Smith, 56 to be almost exact....I'm in better shape at 56 than I was at 24, I still go to the races, I have a repli racer from roughly that era, haven't been to a doctor in 20 years, and I don't ever load my machine like it's a Winnebago. I'm fighting it...to the death
Well, none of THAT applies to me (at the tender age of 54...). That'd be my Winnebago on the right...
