I had an 85 Nighthawk S in the same color scheme. Very practical low-maintenance bike. Note the much smaller front tire. Made for quick, light steering.
My bike did tend to stand up if I braked while leaned over. Not a good thing. Engine was peaky but I liked that at the time.

More for your amusement pleasure

Here is one from 1985. Boy was I skinny and look at all that hair (on left not paying any attention to the other 2)....lol

1979 CB650C, with all the vetter fairings, bags and extra driving lights- I especially like the icicles hanging from the roof,this was my very first brand new bike purchase. Only kept it until 1982 when I bought a V45 Sabre, the beginning of a long list of new bikes over the next decade+

I do this with trepidation, but if Lloyd's brave enough then I guess I should be.
A staged pic for my friends in CA, taken on lunch break in December 1988. That was the bike collection at the time:
1987 CBR1000F Hurricane
1986 Guzzi LeMans Mk IV w/aftermarket fairing & lowers
1980 Guzzi 1000SP

Picture this guy with a battery on his shoulder. Go ahead, knock it off, I dare you.

I think Jay and Denyse are in this picture somewhere. I remember we split off from the main group to hit up twisties in IA, Houston and Winona Counties.

Cool pic, Tony. Those sunny days seam so far off this time of year, but at least the days are getting longer!  :headbang:

This is from sometime before '07. Near the bottom of the hill on the southeast side of Wildcat, at HWY 33 & Cty F.

Left to right: Denyse, dunno, dunno (buddies of hers from Rochester area?) Vince, Kirk, Clueless Rebel, dunno, Dave O, Dave S, Jim, dunno (though I should), Jay.

These people have taught me more about riding than any day spent on a track: Larry B, Tony K, Vince J, Mr. Wonderful, V2Neal, Marty F, Kevin B, Devon W, Ehrich, Mike A, John L, Arnell, Kirk, Ray C

Track days are like climbing the rock wall at REI.

Thanks for sharing. I don't see any bike newer than 05 or 06 so this predates the previous pic.  Is Jay lost? I see him standing at the end of the line of bikes but his bike is way up at the front.  Perhaps nature called :D
