1983... I was eighteen and just getting out of high school, and I said, I gotta get me a 1983 GPz 1100. Well... couldn't afford one, so I ran off and joined the Marines. Among other things, so I could save up my funds to buy me that GPz that I wanted. 21 years later I bought my first brand new bike. A 2004 YZF R1. Never did get that GPz, but it was always my reason for wanting to own a sportbike.
Your bike is awesome. More beautiful than the GPz that started my desire for sportbikes. I almost can't wait to 2010 when I take my 91 FZR off the road for its 20 year anniversary "makeover." Hope it comes out as sweet as yours did!
