    I had 5 of the 900 versions at various times. Very underrated bike IMO but they only ever worked properly with the standard airbox in my experience... Did you notice that 750 has Hesketh clocks

    I have now!

    I guess Hesketh used Honda clocks and put their own faces on them?

    FZ750 with YSS rear shock and Micron exhaust is what you need in your life.

    I do like the idea of an 80's four... but they're big heavy things that require an amount of effort to ride.

    I'd love a 70's two stroke or something with a twin/single motor.

    I might try to get a go on a 00's Bullet at some point, they seem to fit the bill, but I'd much prefer an original 60's one (they're a bit out of budget).

    I've owned trail bikes in the past, I always struggled to find some place to ride them properly, also having no friends meant I was a bit paranoid about falling off and not being found for a week. I did love the way my KDX made power tho'

    They get a lot of CB400SS' in which I think is a lovely looking thing, along with the CL400.
