Sorry about the loss of the RWB Nighthawk but congratulations on the 2k version.

Join us on our next ride.  I'll bring my DR650 so we can have two air cooled bikes.

Congrats on the new ride.  Those air-cooled Nighthawks with hydraulic lifters will run forever.  I once put 3000 miles on one of those in 2 weeks.  I made it to Chicago before I remembered the chain still needs to be lubed.

Nice! I rode a '93 CB750 for a few years and loved it. Sold it to a friend who still commutes on it daily. Those were known for having tachometers that would die out due to weak solder joints. I still have a spare in the garage, along with a replacement set of OEM pads for the foot pegs and a pair of rear shocks. If you need these send me a PM!

Too kind!!  I am one of the lucky ones with a tach that still works.
