That oil cooled gsxr thing was a pig ugly beast even in it's day..... I can't see one part of it I like

BUT I often think back and wish I'd kept my battered and bruised RG500. The thing nearly killed me, but I loved every minute of it... was riding it a good few months before I even had my licence (was it 1988??)

Was the first thing around that REALLY needed a steering damper and check out the MASSIVE box section swinger, cornered like a well used shopping trolley

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

That's impressive for a tank, even though he's missed the apex by 20 feet..... I'd guess that thing would handle like a ZX9

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
