Re: R100RS Worth it?

Absolutely brilliant bikes. Mine would still pull 130mph at 21 years old. All day riding comfort, although your seat is liable to be a bit tired. Best wether protection I,ve ever come across. I remember a 200 mile ride in the rain with a friend on a GSXR400R. I didn't bother with waterproofs he did. I was virtually dry at the other end and he was soaked through.
