    The Marketing play would be something like, look at our history, sure we had a rough patch recently, but that was the old guys... Give us s shot. At that point they have to deliver, and fast.

    I sold my 1971 650 TR6 a few years ago after 40+ years of ownership and those designed in oil leaks meant it was rust free even in coastal florida. Well except for the front rim that actually rusted through from the inside out....

    Good, good. I mean, I'd never stoop so low as to bring something like this to your attention, much less point out that my Daytona has the same .... well, almost everything including engine, frame, wheels, and has almost 49,000 more miles than that bike with little but routine maintenance.
