No, not the 19 year old brunette summer intern with the big... ahem.

A friend at work brought in this 500cc 2-stroke 3-cylinder demon from hell yesterday.  It's a 1970 and he's the first & only owner.  Absolutely badass:









And that's my new monstrosity next to it.

That's pretty sweet. My wife's uncle has a 750 like that, it's a total museum piece and he's the original owner too.

Looks killer except the exhaust is all uneven......2 on one side and 1 on the other would drive me crazy i think.

If the pipes' appearance drives you nuts you should hear them.  Take a Harley with straight pipes and remove all the bass.

I dragged one back in the early '70's turning high 11's-low 12's. Kinda snaky through hard corners, you could feel the frame whip pretty easily. I like the way the taillight is set in the glass seat pan/tail. Very cool looking!

Yup! Way COOL! Not a huge Kawi fan but for this I could make an exception!

Exactly the reason the suzuki gt380 I had had a false exhaust pipe, just to balance the looks out.

   Nice vintage bike. It kinda makes the Bimmer look silly by comparison.

Yeah, MOST bikes make the GS look silly.  It's freakin' huge, but at 6'2" it's the right bike for me.

I'm not sure about silly, it looks pretty practical and well set up to me. Nice vanity plate as well.
