Think I'll stick with the Jap Crap, unless I happen to find a 900SS that I can afford, or maybe an R90S. How about a Jota?........

Yeah it was built by Paul Rooney. Its an 84 R80G/S frame with twin plugged R100 engine. 100mm lengthend double sided swingarm with WP shock to a 33/11 diff. 45mm Marzocchi forks with custom solid alloy mountings. The frame has been strengthend in most places. Man its easy to work on, sounds great, and cruises all day at 120ks. I love it

Anything counts, as long as it's 25yr+, it's all good!

My girlie won't ride anything other than road bikes these days. I've got her hooked on the VFR, but she just scooted off to work on the R65 this morning. When the ride is about getting somewhere she takes the Viffer, but when the ride is about "the ride" the Beemer still takes it.
