Goldwing fuel tank full of vinegar... You get some odd looks when you walk out of the supermarket with 22 litres of the stuff.
When you are finished you can make some weedkiller just add salt 1kg per 3 liters vinegar and some water

I seem to recall Harry's a Kawasaki fan?

I can still remember riding this model and later Z1000's way back when, and thought that they were pretty special, which they were at the time. Now, not so much compared to modern bikes, but I would still like to have a half a dozen of these in this condition in the garage to sell. I don't know what it will bring in the US, but it could be a AU$40K bike out here.

I seem to recall that the H2 was known as the widowmaker, so does that make this a mini widowmaker?

60hp and round 190 kg was impressive for the 500 triple two stroke-but unpredictable handling.
GT750 waterbottle/water buffalo-more refined/civil I believe

The  2strokes now gaining collectability-when I was living in Sydney Deus had a T500 suzuki on the floor for $4000-I left it for a month and rang them back when I had the dollars-it was already let go for $1000 due to "lack of interest"... 2cry

Louder pipes are safer for the bank account of the local audiologist as he tests your deafness level - they dont make a scrap of differance safety wise to road users because you are always ahead of the noise.

Haha hopefully I'll be able to come up with something a bit more elegant than the ole "wire mesh up the pipe" trick. I'm still of the mind that louder pipes are safer for the rider but unfortunately I don't think the cops have figured that out yet  :dry:

I remember getting a 1969 CB250 "defected" for excessive noise by an officer who in conversation said-"I don't care if you have a current RWC its too loud-I could hear you from 1/4 mile away....you cant ride it til its fixed..." Doh :rules:

Back in the day as we Oldies like to say, I always had modified cars and bikes which always had louder than stock exhaust systems. The local Coppers were forever pulling us over for a vehicle check, which comprised a quick look at the tyres and sticking their big size 12 boot onto the accelerator to check the exhaust noise.
Invariable they would say that's too loud, get it fixed and report to the Police Station within 7 days.
No problemo....I had a piece of aluminium mesh that I used to roll up and insert into my tailpipe with a broom handle. It always passed their inspection and about 24 hours later it would start to come out of the exhaust pipe so that I could grab it and remove it completely until the next time.  cool0010
lol-exactly what i did-but used "chicken wire" left over  from the budgie cage-though I may have packed it in too tight-the bike would idle ok but power delivery was akin to a 50-90cc.... 2smiley.......but it was only for 10km to the inspection station and back fietsertour
