VR, thank you again for your efforts. I attempted this many years ago. Had a commercial electronic load cell scale, built wood ramps to roll the bikes up and maintain level. Hauled the setup to various dealer and weighted bikes I had interest in at the time. Because the the bikes on the showroom floor had varying amounts of gas in them, I was forced to make an adjustment. After much thought I concluded: Wet ready to ride w/o gas was the fairest configuration. I totally agree with not including weights from various unknown sources.

VR, thought you might get a kick out of this, we think allot alike (I own a 74 Rickman powered by a VR). The file was last modified in 2001 and yeah some of the dealers thought I was nuts. And I don't even remember what all the symbols mean any more;
