XS650: Diggers   Leave a comment

 

Diggers. Straightline highway racing. On-ramp to Off-ramp. Acceleration rulz!

Low. Light. Long.

Sissy bars and pillion seats? Undesireable.

Tall forks and apehangers? More comfortable to simply wash your armpits.

Drag style. Wedge.

Fell for these, late 70’s.
