Thanks for that. I was lucky enough to own the GS750, which is not mentioned here, the GS1000 AND THE CBX 1000. Strange that the GS750 did not get a mention here, that Bike was in Kawasaki's 900 Territory. After 6000 rpm that Thang was brutal.

I thought they would have mentioned the Kawa 1300 too or where they from the 80's?

I owned a Suzuki GS1000E, and a super bike it certainly was. But my main Superbike of the '70's was a 750 Triumph Trident.

That will maybe elicit one or two comments, but people can say whatever they like. I know what I know.  :3some:

Ja the Trident was my besti and I have owned a couple including jotas and DuksBonnies et all, but it was the Trident that stirred my soul
