Great looking bike, I like zillions of others crossed over to the oh so reliable & powerfull CB750 in the early 70's. Even 1%ers pushed their HD"s to the back of the shed, and started riding CB's and Z1's.
The Classic look has been a "allmost right" by a lot of manufacturers, Kawasaki, Ducati, Honda, but the "Bonnie" has to be the most faithfull to the original out of them all. That is why "I" bought it.
Do you think a lot of us hanker for the times when life "seemed" simpler and care free? I'm glad there are others that feel that way, cause I get a lot of 'you can't live in the past' from my m8's.
thanks for listening DUG
