A fireman mate has had an RC30 from new. He rode it for a couple of years. It's tucked away now.

Yeah, a few geared them down. His is an '89 on an 'F'. I remenber it being huge money at the time. I was running about on a RD500 Marlboro wich looked a bit tame next to the RC.

I used to have an ns400r bored to 500 by either terry shepherd - or the other guy, who's name I can't remember. Had various other sleeper mods to suspension & tyres. Was a good bike, though mebbe doesn't fit in the "proper bike" category.

Not quite as quick as an RG500, but better looking and more solidly built.

Kenny Roberts too

That's a rarity-it's an H1F isn't it? I had the misfortune of trying to ride one once. Better than the H1C with drum front brake though.
