    funny,i never had any problems with the duke monster on that score.
    never had any issues with the gpz900 or zx10,always loved the look of the gpz1000rx,even more so when you see how ugly the zx10 was...
    my favorites where the gpz 750 turbo and gpz1100 air cooled.....i havent seen any of those around for a very long time...love to get a 1100 project to do up.

    I had a 600 Monster before I had a 900 and the 600 was bloody hopeless in cold weather because of the carb icing. OK on really hot days but a piece of bloody junk in autumn or spring. The GPz1000RX had hot water pipes between the carbs so I guess there was never going to be a problem with that. My Ducati 907ie was fuel injected even back then so again, no problem.

    It looked like a barge at the side of the modern bikes, how people threw them around the isle of man tt I don't know! They also had a fzr600r fox eye unregistered, very tempted as I had one for 9 years,doubt I'd get my feet on the pegs now

    I came across this little beauty some time ago. Looks like a classic but was actually brand new. Royal Enfield 350 four stroke single, very nicely put together and sound proper, like a real old thumper.

    Indian made copy of the British fifties bike. Assembled over here from crates of shipped in parts and given some tweaks and better paintwork, 350 and 500 sizes made, with various spec options. Reg Allen of Hanwell used to be a main importer, dunno if he still is. There are quite a few about. A mate of mine has a couple of the 350's. Dead easy to maintain, but need regular fettling and pretty slow. Not a bike for the motorway.

    Reg Allen also sell Chinese AJS badged small bikes.

    I agree, you wouldn't want to do a grand tour on it ( although I do know a chap who toured through France and into Spain and back on a Honda C90 Cub ).
