Wow, Randy, thanks for sharing that video. If that was really the test ride procedure, then they didn't test much. Riding that close together was for the film, not real testing, or they would be running into each other.

When I saw them testing, they went out alone.

Are these old bikes hard to get parts for? Is there a thread here somewhere outlining the characteristics of the R25/26/27 's?

Don't know about a thread, but if you plan to actually ride it for more than 1/2 hour, you will want a R27 with it''s rubber-mounted engine. I hear it makes a world of difference.

I get all my R25/2 parts from Vech at Benchmark Works.

"Goodbye and bon voyage."

I love it !
After 20 years as a professional bike mechanic and 30 years as an engineer I know just enough to be dangerous !
