Girl's bike?!?....harumph. He is clearly wrong b/c my girl, Mary, won't ride it. The guy is clearly an idiot. Aussies....

I had one of these 501 Camels - nice bike. $5,000 AU is what, about $500 US? ..... just kiddin'... but I bought it brandy new at Hermy's in Port Clinton, PA for $3300. I rode it for a few years, and sold it for more than I paid for it.

Wish I still had it. Fun bike. The 501 (507cc) motors were waaay better than the 472cc ones from the original 500. Better tranny, too.

Oh, well, and of an era.

The Goootsy NTX is a nice looking bike....

How about the 1100 Quota which is the REAL GS killer of the bunch! No one seems to know or want to speak about it?

Great stuff guys !! I'm a junkie for any euro shit. I used to do the AHRMA euro dirt bike stuff but got lazy and started riding modern zuki rides. Reliable and fun but nowhere as cool as these bikes...

None the less... I'm living vicariously through this thread !!

The 1100 Quota is a big, heavy (540 lbs) and quite pretty bike. I wouldn't want to be too far from the pavement on it, as with any GS.



This site has quite a bit of info on the 1100 Quota.

The rather rare 1000 Quota....at 573 lbs....huge...

That makes two of us, HC.

The one I considered was sound, low miles, a tad scruffy -- only surface roughness, though. And it was offered really cheap, too. Dammit. Always liked the 3 1/2 Sport, too. Purty, y'know.
