    Damn, that could be a long list.
    I'd love a Suzuki RGV 500, whether I could ride it or not is another matter
    Had a hankering for another smoker for a while
    An adventure bike would be high on my list too, however having time to use it is my enemy at the moment, 3 years to go woo hoo :):)

    Here's one for the Aussies!
    I've finally come to terms with the fact that with my declining flexibility due to injury, and being generally pathetic, that I simply can't ride my RC30 anymore. So sadly, my RC30 is for sale.
    Not perfect, but it is very good. Details as posted for sale elsewhere are:

    This bike is in exceptional condition. I know, everyone says that, but I’ve seen a few others over the past few years and this is the best I’ve seen for sale locally (within Australia). It’s not a perfect museum piece, this RC30 has been ridden, so obviously shows signs of use, but not neglect.
    The bike is currently registered in South Australia and has all necessary import paperwork. It has previously been registered in New South Wales.

    Japanese Domestic Market model, with unrestricted CDI and carburetor jetting.
    I have owned this bike for less than 3 of its 27 years, with most of its history unavailable, the details below are everything I know about this bike.
    Built early 1988, one of the original Japanese Market bikes that were sold by ballot, so includes the ‘vanity plate’ riveted to the frame, numbered 880959.
    Imported to Australia, serviced and sold by a major Honda dealer in 2011 with 18,125 km. Bought by me in 2013 with 19,500km. Now showing 20147km.
    Since arriving in Australia the following work has been done on the bike:
    By previous owner or dealer pre-delivery –
    New Dunlop Roadsmart II tyres in standard sizes (still 80% +)
    All service items as per owner’s manual and more, including:
    All fluids replaced
    New oil filter
    Replaced restricted JDM CDI with unrestricted version
    Serviced / regassed rear shock absorber
    Replaced front brake pads with EBC HH
    By current owner –
    Carburettors removed from bike, cleaned, rejetted with FactoryPro jet kit including adjustable needles and bigger jets.
    Dyno run to confirm jetting – 92RWHP, slightly rich mid range. Left as is for durability over performance, could do with lowering needles.
    Replaced front brake pads with OEM Honda items to preserve the original discs.
    Replaced exhaust gaskets.
    Checked and adjusted valve clearances.
    Replaced chain and sprockets, re-lockwired to factory specification. Chain is a DID 525VX with a riveted join link. This two tone gold/black version is as close as possible in appearance to the no longer available original RK chain. The original chain seemed OK and within wear limits, I just couldn’t trust a 25 year old chain.
    Replaced fluids (again) and another new oil filter. Oil and filter changed annually, even with the low useage.
    Fitted the white ‘rest of the world’ mirrors in place of the original, black JDM ones, which like practically all of them, had cracks in the plastic. The originals have been repaired and painted and are now in good, useable condition if someone wanted the bike back to JDM appearance.
    Checked, adjusted, cleaned, polished, waxed everything.
    Other info –
    The bike has been repainted at some point in its history. The quality is extremely good. There is a small series of cracks in the paint, possibly into the fiberglass resin, very low down on the left side. It doesn’t show up in the photos, but I think it’s worth pointing out for the sake of honesty. I don’t know what caused it. The previous owner didn’t mention it, maybe it happened in transit from him to me? It does appear that the bike has been crashed on the left side because there are some VERY faint scrapes on the indicator lens, bar end weight and exhaust heat shield. This might explain the repainting.
    I have two keys, but not the original carbon fiber inlaid one that would have been supplied to the original Japanese owner.
    I don’t have the original toolkit or Japanese owner’s manual. What I do have is a reproduction US market owner’s manual, so while not original for the bike, is at least in English. I also have an original Honda parts manual in good condition, in Japanese.
    There is a genuine Honda paddock stand with the bike, but it is not an original RC30 one. Instead it came from a VFR400R NC30, and has been painted black to look like an RC30 one. It isn’t identical to the original, but very similar and it works.
    I have the original, restricted CDI and carburetor parts.
    The bike is for sale as is, including all items described above. AUD $30K
