The 80 was great for its era but time has moved on. 

Finally someone that sees the light!

The R80 was probably awesome when Noah rode it off the ark, but since then we have discovered fire.

The Yamaha XJ900S Diversion is a brilliant shaft drive Sport Tourer. (It was my most loved, reliable, comfortable bike to date...I miss it dearly)
Considering the FJR1300 replaced the Divy it's also an option...  :mwink:

But seriously, 210kg dry without luggage and those small wheels...in sand....NO thanks!!!
