But i am still in love with it and learning how to fix her by the side of the road :p

(might be trauma, but my R65 was the first bike that left me on the road and I had to call for help -> bad crack-o-matic coil = no spark)
here's a good place for specific r65 stuff if you haven't found it already.

i bought mine from an adv member this summer, and thanks to his efforts in maintenance and light restoration it's been exceedingly reliable and fun to ride.
lookin' for a place to happen;
makin' stops along the way - the tragically hip

needless dickery
