I have many fond memories of my 86 VF500.
We spent a lot of time embarrassing much larger bikes.

That's very cool.
That rear sprocket is enormous!

4th gear wheelies? Top speed about 80mph?

That's the deluxe model, which is not available in Canada ( probably because they have too many of last year's leftover). But if it were, that would be the top of my list easily.

A properly set and updated TX 750 is a lovely bike to ride.
