New guy, old bike
I'm just wrapping up physical therapy after being rear-ended by a drunk while sitting at a stoplight. The bike and I have been worked on and I'm glad to say both of us are coming together well.
I'm the original owner of the red '86 R80RT. It was a replacement for my previous bike, a '73 R75/5. I just can't seem to get away from that basic design.
I'm having much fun with the new paint and a few other goodies. I'm looking forward to getting back on the road in a week or so. With any luck, I'll make it to the Death Valley Rendezvous.
I'll post a few more pics of this work in progress after I look around a bit.
Glad to hear that you survived the accident. Hope that you have a less eventful riding season in 2013.
Retired and riding my RTs, the '87 K100 & the '98 R1100 !

New paint on the tank
Not too bad for water-based paint...
Thanks Paul. I'm looking forward to putting all of Humpty Dumpty back together again.
