I rented a TDR on the Greek island of Keffalonia in 1996.
When I returned to San Francisco, I had to have one, and miraculously one showed up in the Chronicle a couple months later. I bought it for $2500 bone stock from a mechanic at Monroe Motors who had emigrated to the States from Van BC and was allowed to bring it in and title it in CA. I've owned mine for almost 16 years, blown it up many times and done many mods.
Still my go to bike for around town.
What's your story, JB?
