    I get no video. Those bikes are stunning! check out the frame bracing on the GS. I would love to see the body work off. People race the smaller bikes because there are more available and cheaper to buy, race and maintain. The larger displacement bikes were and are still expensive to run and are a handful to ride.

    Wow! There are some cool bikes in there. I think it speaks volumes to how these machines were built.

    Interesting point! My 2 bikes are 1000+ cc also. I remember looking at specs after I got my '82 1100 and seeing there wasn't as big of a bump in performance from the 650 as I would have thought, especially when you consider the difference in weight. I also was recently looking at specs of the R6 and was amazed at the power - albeit at 14,000+ rpm. On a track I can imagine the lighter bikes being a blast to ride. On the street I'm just fine spending more time quietly in the lower gears. I also appreciate the 100lb drop from the '82 1100 to my '16 1000.
