Not quite what I had in mind for the shakedown run. Cold, Wet with mud all over the roads. Winter riding in England sucks sometimes.

Only has 32000 miles. It is going off today for new brakes. Scary ride home !! I am also changing the handle bars to ones more straight across. My wrists are not comfortable at this angle.

R90S bar on my /5 works well.

Almost embarassed to post

I believe in the 20/20 rule. The bike should look good from no closer than 20 feet or no slower than 20 MPH.

Here's my RT from a weekend in the White Mountains of NH. Evan's Notch to be exact.

Cheers mate. Had her for years. One of those bikes that becomes part of the family after a while and you wouldn't dream of selling.

A little self indulgence. Same spot different angle.

Hi Thanks for the offer but I had to sell the PD tank to fund another project. It sold within a couple of ours locally

I'm not sure from what bike the square headlight originates unfortunately. I'll be fixing the original headlight wich was broken years ago by a few pro Jap riders according to the 78 year old original owner. I'm waiting on a few parts then she'll be finished.

Cheers and happy riding!
