    Picked up an old RG500 Gamma.

    Beastly at 365lbs wet with about 100hp at the wheel.

    I bought this bike new in 1979... Still ride it occasionally.
    It is the other " air cooled 6" in my garage..
    In it's day the fastest Production bike you could buy.
    Foul handling due to a 23 lb frame and plastic swing arm bushings..
    I weighed 140 lbs and it didn't even know I was on it.

    I lusted after the 6 into 6 exhaust from Australia for many years
    but had a hard time justifying the cost..
    More than 1/2 the cost of the bike new. BUT, it did happen..

    Now sounds like an F1 car when you get it to around 9000 rpm..

    We are both dinosaurs now....

    I'll be 67 in a few months...

    Along with that Bonanza, it would be nice to avoid dealing with batteries on bikes. Alternative of a magneto seems a good way to go -- 9: 50 on Jay's Indian is highlighted..
