Sold this to a friend... so it is still in the family.
The R65 mono fits me better.. smaller, and lighter. cheaper!
Ooh la la.
I was just coming up with a cafe-bike rear suspension geometries like that in my head last night when I laid in bed.
A toaster does make a lovely cafe bike.

If I couldn't ride an AIRHEAD, I'd quit riding
Yep. The bike is a blast! It was a clean stock /5 but I couldn't resist a little modification. I put all of the original bits on a shelf and welded up a new subframe (bolt on) which is a little taller and moved the upper shock mounts forward about 3 or 4 inches. Threw on a set of clubmans and an airtech seat cowl and presto...a great little cafe. Here's the bike at Indy MotoGP.
[QUOTE=Boxboy100;418078]I was keeping my eyes open for a mono.. I used to have a beauty R100 but it was way too pretty for me. I was scared to get it scratched/dirty etc.. I wanted a bike I can play with. Mine was the black CS.
Love the CS you owned but looked at the link for the R65. Good work! That will be a fun ride. Also really like the photo you posted with the CS and the RS. Beautiful background. Where was it taken?
Thank you. That shot was taken somewhere around Erin Ontario (north west of Toronto). Just one of many farm backroads. Grant with his RS and I went for long ride that day. We swapped bikes for a while and it was amazing how similar the bikes felt. I know that they are more a less the same, but it was really cool to feel how "my" bike feels with the big RS Fairing..
The CS also rolled over 100 000 kms that day.
