Ha Ha!

Was cleaning out an old closet and found a motorcycle training manual that I had from 1980. Of course I started leafing through it, and found the information to still be relevant (very!) today. Even the part about motorcycle equipment. My heart skipped a little beat when I saw the picture!

Love the groovy lettering:

And I really love the bike used:

I'd like to see someone operate that brake by foot that the arrow is pointing to.
And tires required equipment? really? I had no idea that was so important.
It makes you wonder sometimes at the level of stupidity of humanity.

So, can anyone guess what the cover bike is?

Wow, that’s clean....is that an old picture or is that the last cx500 in existence that wasn’t cut up by hipster doofus’ into a custom bobber?

The CX 500 was my first guess as well.

That's a very pretty example. I like how the gauges are integrated into the headlight enclosure.

that was my first guess but the bump on the tank was throwing me off. thought maybe a Suzi....

Technically it's a CX500D (deluxe)

I remember them well.
the cool thing about working on the CX500's, engines were real easy to get out.
