Yes .. but the bottom has been cut to lower the tank on that frame. Even less gas capacity.

Sorry for the shitty pic. That's me and my dearly departed R80G/S somewhere in Death Valley (yeah, that's snow on the ground).

Thanks clang! I like it alot too.

From your sig line it appears you have quite the Airhead GS collection yourself! I ran through Fort Collins on the way to Ouray this summer but I was on my Adventure. Stopped for a little lunch in town and ate outside at Austin's where I could watch all the coeds walk by. Nice scenery.


Now that I've disgraced the "Old School" forum with an oilhead pic, I'll quickly throw one more close-up of the "Bad Bee" to avoid getting flamed.

It doesn't look so good up close, but what a great bike to ride. Got it for $1600 with <40k miles.
