    The Sachs MadAss 125 I had for a few years was pretty ugly, but I liked it! That thing got more attention when I went places on it that some of the nicest mild-custom Harleys. Everyone wanted to ask about it.

    Hans Muth of BMW design fame did the Katana.His BMW design cues can be seen in both the Katana and the R80RT.Brilliant work.The RT's were the best fairing ever.

    On second thought....the Apex deal includes the ducati luggage and full termi system.All it needs is a real headlite.
    Going to have a look at it this week.If the service records look ok,i might do it.

    I was alive. But I was more interested in the little 50 that my uncles were teaching me to ride. I was 5

    Back in that era, a lot of bikes were covered top to bottom with fairing / cowl.

    I still really like that CBR 600, even if it does look a little pregnant.

    Didn't they call it "the guppy"? or maybe that was the later Katanas. The Brits nicknamed them "the teapot" for some reason.
    If getting the bike ready and getting around with it means you'd rather take the car? You have the wrong bike.
