December 2020 Bike of the Month

Some things just stand the Test of Time.

For me personally, its Honda's RWB bikes of the mid 80's, they just look right.

So time for another Interceptor as BOTM.

Congratulations elysse, your 84 VF5000F, restored to its OEM colors is Dec. 2020's BOTM.

I too have a special fondness for the first generation interceptors and this one is sweet! I just wish they had come in an XL because I'm a little too tall for a comfortable fit.

Nice work elysse! Congratulations!

I remember elysse posting way back.  Too bad that she is not still active here, I looked and her last post was in 2012.

She is aware of the award, also seems pleased by the honor.  Now rides a Ducati Monster. 

This bike was a hideous banana yellow when she bought it. 

She sold this one about 6 years ago?  I think she still wishes she owned it.
