Default Smokin' deal on an old sportbike...

Obviously not mine, but man if I were closer... it'd be in my garage.

I had an 86. Twas my first sportbike.
I think I have my old shop manual lying around.
That looks to be an amazing deal on a great bike.

Only 1,000 miles per year? Poor thing.

Yep.

I wonder if that means the throttle is on the left? (I vaguely remember hearing in one scene he used his left hand to either increase or maintain speed, but don't know if it's accurate or not)

Yup

The one I owned had the same color scheme as the GPz in the movie. The guy I sold it too was so exited because he had been looking for the "Top Gun" bike

All I remember is he blows thru the same 4-way stop that he criticizes the blonde for doing

Tom rode a trailer in most of the "motorcycle" scenes in Top Gun.
