What is your favourite bike of the 1980s?

Unread post by STR2014 » Sat Aug 16, 2014 12:12 am

Hi All,

First post, and hope all well.

Ahead of this year's IOM Classic TT, there's a poll being conducted asking people to vote on their favourite 1980s bike from a shortlist of 22 classics, including the Honda RC30 (VFR750R), the Suzuki Katana, the Ducati 851, plus many more...

Click on the following link to cast your vote:

Would be great to know Classic Bike Forum members' thoughts.

Nothing interesting on the list, but then there was nothing interesting in the '80s.

As I expected my favourite is not on there , that would be a CB250RS of course, fancy them not putting that on there! Apart from anything else why do they always assume everyone does that b' face book thing, grrrr.

Mine neither, but if I did vote it would be either the GPz900 or the 350LC. I never owned either of them but there were a few elsies in our town and my pal owned the GPz 900. I quite liked that then. Nowadays I regret missing out on the 2 stroke experience of the elsies, but they are funny money nowadays

They seem to have forgotten to put GSX1100EF on the list.
