Let's face it, there's fuck all sexy about early Hondas. Only dullards bought them at the time as they were reliable but bloody boring. Sexy bikes of that era were H2s and GT750s. A CB750 is about exciting as a VW Golf, it does everything you want but in a boring, economical and reliable way and that's why they are still around today, I'm sorry to say.
Gt750? Sexy? Really? I suppose you find margret thatcher sexy as well. ESP in granny panties.
Cb750s are the carol voderman of bikes, brilliant, brainy at subjects you would rather stab yourself in the eye with a pencil than participate in, and still good looking enough that you would fancy a shag in a girl next door way. GT750s are the lunch ladies of bikes, plump in all the wrong bits, visible warts that it doesn't care to hide, but you still get a half boner on sloppy joe day and she makes you smile when she ladles on the sauce.
Yes the GT were cool in the day because that's all there was. I like the 'any port in a storm', willing dinner lady analogy though.
Don't get me started on Thatcher, that bitch wrecked thousands of lives. In fact every year I keep one day's holiday back so that when she does eventually die I can throw party and go dance on her grave.
I picked up a used KLR650 to add to my fleet and replace my old 93 DR650. I got a really good deal from the original owner up in San Francisco. I purchased this for a couple of reasons... First... Me and my son want to do some adventure riding. He's going to pick up a KLR himself and sort it...

been messing around with bikes for years but im NOT a mechanic, more of a muchanic, meaning that i muck about till something works.
