Yes! Isn't that wonderful. You look at all the things on the bike and you get a Where is Waldo sensation.

And you feel dirty. Confession is good for the soul.

Where would one get Killboy-type photos in PDX, that we might mock your customer?

Honda V65

I looked at a similar Honda in the same time frame. It was a VT500 twin that was very similar to the V65. Honda could crank out multiple sized twin engines over the years.

Yeah, except for the little detail that the V30, V45 and V65 were all V-4's.

Great engines, smooth w---i---d---e power band.

Was it that, or was it that the guys jumping into riding left and right back then just didn't know how to stop?

The thing has disk brakes - how bad could it be?

A guy I work with has one....seems to turn just fine, he has bigger balls than me, he rides it hard. After all these years it still goes like a bat out a hell....

It was pretty bad. It was fast as hell, but it had a huge rake angle so there wasn't much weight on the front. It didn't want to turn and it would lock the front wheel under the slightest provocation. I woudl put it in the "fun but weird" category.
