How many RG's in the garage?
This will be a fun forum. To start, how many of us have more than one RG500? With the rarity of the Gamma, I find it interesting that so many owners have multiple RG's. I have several (seems to fluctuate between 2 and 3). If these are so hard to find, why do some people end up with more than one?

Just one bike in my garage, my beloved RG

got several in various states of readiness - always working on some and riding a few. seems to be the general state of RG owners - always tinkering!

That's a nice CH, Carsten! What wheels are you running? I had a blue CH from Italy back in '89 that I purchased from the original owner who imported it into CA using DPL EuroStyle (a gray market importer in San Francisco back in the day). This poor fellow uncrated it himself and proceeded to ride 983kms before the motor locked up. He didn't put any gear oil in it.

Currently, I have 5 running and 5 non running Gammas. I will try to post a few pictures.

Just the one.. and that costs enough thank you very much!

Cool scoot, Lee! I really like the blend of old and new for bodywork. Looks like an elegant solution for the USD front end and lower bars. I would like to see a dash shot. Did you go with triple clamp mounted RGV or some method of mounting the stock dash? The rear wheel looks to be 4.5" perhaps?

Man, gold Astralites on a Wolf are bitchen. Btw, how old do you have to be to recognize those wheels?

If I was good at PhotoShop, I'd put some oil and crud on that thing just to see what one of your machines looks like dirty.

Do you do detailing for a living?:bowdown

I'm down to 1 RG500 and 1 NS400R. Sold 1 to an American in Wisconsin and another to a Collector in Australia...
