Yeah, (it was Fairbanks to West Virginia and back in three weeks) I've owned two of the things and put LOTS of miles on them. Great bikes; quiet and comfortable and they handle great. I rode my '89 through the two weeks of MSF Instructor certification training classes. Back in the day (as Levi said) Two Brothers was doing amazing things w/ the Honda NT647 Hawk GT. The PC drive train is a very similar 800cc and supposedly they got one with the intent to work the same magic into it. I guess they worked and worked and experimented with all kinds of combinations and couldn't get the thing to run for crap... except in bone stock exhaust and intake configuration with some minor jetting mods. Put Progressive Suspension springs in the forks, keep good tires on it , and ride the crap out of it.

I plan to keep it bone stock except for welding a hole in the exhaust.....and maybe cupholder...Should have it on the road next week and will daily it until its too cold .....so far it has 95,000 miles....

I traded a pretty plain Jane flat topped AR for a Cb750k with a weird clutch cable

The p/o snapped a cable on the road and a atv shop got him going again.

At 95k miles the places where the body parts join may be a bit creaky and squeaky, especially on a '89. They made some changes with the '90 and later models. I'll bet that in a short time you'll really like it as a daily rider. And that trunk is something that you'll soon wonder how you ever lived without it.

I had a brain fart and somehow convinced myself that trading this

For this

Was a good idea ‍♂️
Would probably feel worse if i didn’t have enough parts and shit to build two more taking up space in my fun shed.

I love that gen 300z. I had a college roommate with one, and that thing was a blast.

A bloke I used to work with had one. I was trying to convince him to put a VG33ER in it.

Stop it, don’t give me any ideas here.

I always had a thing for old 240-280z and these 300zx’s. It just made sense for my situation because;
It’s 300$/year cheaper to register
It’s a turbo 2+2 for my kids to come for a ride.
I honestly don’t have time to enjoy riding a motorcycle anymore.

Time to dredge up an old thread. I love trades when it makes both sides happy.

Deviant1 (an old head of DTT) really wanted a fat tire bike for the beach that he lives close to, and I've had my eye on a 1st gen DL1000 VSTROM for a hot minute. The swamp donkey will now live out its days as a beach cruiser, and I will soon have a solid daily mule that I hope to be able to load down and point in any direction and go.

Ill miss the old swamp donkey, but both bikes are now where they belong :)

The trusty old dr650 carried me through alot of adventures over the last two years, and I'm sad to see it go, but ya can't keep them all. I figured since I already have a long beard and I wear flannel, I traded it off for this 1994 harley sportster 1200. Actually an 883 with a 1200 top end. Dude gave me a bit of boot too. Might sell it in the spring, or ride it for a season then sell it.
