There was an NR750 at the Rock Store two weeks ago and there have been two different RC 30s up there lately too.

Those guys are speaking in tounges...

I fell in love with the oval piston concept...I was a calculus math student in colledge back then; the concept and theory behind this engine was exciting to me as a lerning engineer to say the least....

never became production...wonder what killed it...it did produce the power back in it's day as I recall..which is the main reason I like owning motorcycles...power to weight ratio is unmatched...this oval piston novelty had that in spades....

good video fish...does bring bak some good memories....I used to salivate for power more then...still find it fun...as a hobby....

God is good!!

btw I got the bikeland hat....someone wrote "Salsa" on it...haha

You might let these guys know some time I am not a fictional character..and I am who God made me and who I say I am...;no fake here....for the record...

God bless!!

Nice video!!

...I bought a brand-new 'candy-blue 1975 Z1-B when I was a young 19 y.o....when I close my eyes and remember how it was, I can still "feel " it...I can still "smell" it...I can still "hear" it...it was my very first bike
