WHAT??? Nobody is taking advantage of that opener - Mike talking about a piece of tail... :naughty:
What: you expected me to stoop to making a comment about most of the tail that Mike gets being from that era? I would never do that.... :baby:

Hahahahaha :laughing:

(PS: that's Doogie Howser... he was every young girl's heart throb at the time because we didn't know he was gay... lol)

Now if only he was wearing less clothes it would be more equal to the photo above.

LOL. Ah, the 90's rave scene....and here is a little known fact, I had a retail store (Internet Cafe) from 1993-1997 in Markham, Ontario called "Storm Multimedia".

That's an oldie coupon there from our store. :D

In all seriousness, I would love to have my Honda CB400T back. At the time I sold it I was ready to sell it, but now I want it back... Go figure!

Sometimes we miss certain attributes of departed bikes that we used to enjoy or didn't appreciate until afterwards. We also miss the memories and the good times associated with that particular bike.

Too true. (we also look back with rose coloured glasses as well...but hey, they are memories so why not? haha.)

Perhaps we should change the thread title to "Unobtanium Japanese Bikes - what are you trusting for???" You're making me feel out of place with my suggestions. :D But while we're on the subject, I wouldn't mind having my '99 Kawasaki Drifter 1500 back in the garage. They're getting harder to find these days and will soon be on the unobtanium listings, too.

OK then Gummi, here is my Italian side of the equation:
Image
The Laguna Seca Lucchinelli. THE brilliant Marco Lucchinelli limited edition 750 f1 is named after his success at the battle of the twins at Laguna in `86. Tis the bike the sealed the deal for my Ducati lust.

Too bad he served time for smuggling drugs not too much later on down the line. He rode hard and partied a little too hard. One from the old school.

Well Gummi, if that's the case then I'll tell you I'd love to have an old Panhead in the garage. Along with a Sporty from back in the day when they were some of the fastest things on two wheels!

Kawasaki W800.Truly unobtainium, since it's an EU-only bike.
