5th Annual Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Meet

I held my annual vintage Japanese meet on Sept 22nd
Forecast was for rain but the day turned out great....it kept the numbers down from last year when I had 100 bikes show up...this year we had 70....fun day.

Re: 5th Annual Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Meet

It looked like a really good show, until I realised there didnít appear to be any Kawasaki H2ís or Z1bís . Jokes apart, some great looking bikes

Yeah it was weird this year... I was standing there and realized that there was only on Kawasaki there out of some 70 bikes....usually there lots. Maybe they don't hold up as well...

I don't know, my ones are holding up pretty good! My oldest is a 72 and the youngest is a 75 . I do like the GS which I know you're in to, I had lots of fun on my GS1000 back in the day.

[quote=When did you buy those?[/QUOTE]

I bought the 73 and 75 H2’s in 2016 from the same person. The 72, 74 H2’s and 75 Z1b were bought in 2017. I’ve completely stripped and restored the Z1 over the last 9 months.

We were never using the K1600 GTL, preferring to fly and ride to the SGR rally, so I did a straight swap for a 2014 HP4 with 80 miles on the Clock earlier this year, so I still have a BMW in the garage
