For those over 50 only. To much intake for those youngsters under 50. Will cause hair to grow in the palms of your hands and you will go blind.

Hondas...

I never thought this forum would stoop to level of posting boring appliances. I thought this thread was supposed to be about bikes, not the two-wheeled equivalent of a toaster. What's next, pictures of fridges?

Lefty, if you are referring to that symbol of manliness also known as an RC30, you and I shall have words, my oh too recently made virtual acquaintance. Just because it might have been relatively reliable, that doesn't make it any less of an engineering masterpiece. On the contrary, the fact that it just flat worked makes it even better.

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

You heretic. Hondas are motorcycles and deserve love as much as basket case Ducs, Katys and farm tractors.
