You want to talk about CRS... I wrote the book!! Unless I had a picture or old magazine to refer to, I'm outta luck! The Kawi's were the H2s and Scott may have been a junior, but don't hold me to that.

XLCR.. I only know that Triumph and BSA were in the same boat, getting tired of the purpose built XR750 H-D beating them. Everyone was looking for more horsepower to compete with the Harleys. I can' remember when they started running them, but I seem to remember seeing photos from Santa Rosa, and Sacramento miles with Aldana,Rice and Nixon riding triples. Just can't recall the year.
