Missing my brick, thinking K75RT. This one might not have the heat issue, too bad it rains here in NW FL

Seems like a lot to pay for a serpentine rubber front brake hose, an Amazon el cheapo speedo, water cooling and grit blasting of your legs, chest and back from wheel spray, and learning to use hand directional signals.

Jeremy wondered why all his friends referred to him as a "Brickwaller". 

"Maybe if I take a picture of my cafe racer on railroad tracks out in the sticks."

Sadly, Rock and Roll Confidential no longer exists.  The Hall of Douchebags probably got sued by someone who got famous and had to close down.

I agree. But I have to admit that I like the paint color.

Cool! I wonder how much extra for the bread box, a full seat with back rack, somewhat of an original style RT fairing, headlights and turn signals?

Oh, wait, you can get one of those for 25% of the price he's asking. . .

I saw that one. I'm always suspicious when a dealer neglects to provide the mileage.
