Not every legend is a myth, some are flesh and blood. Some legends walk among us, but they aren’t born, they’re built. Legends are made from iron & sweat, mind and muscle, blood and vision and victory. Legends are champions, they grow, they win, they conquer.

You'd be buying someone else's problem and an older bike with a scarce parts availability and no aftermarket anymore. If that intrigues you (or at least doesn't scare you), have fun. I gave up on carb'ed bikes 15 years ago.

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.
