I suppose. In this case, it’s our GSXpert Sean Freeman, who forwarded us a few photos of his pal Marco Opheij’s shop in Doornhoek, in the Netherlands. Looks like Marco’s got four RRs, of which only 500 were supposed to have been made. Wait, what’s that?

I think that one makes it five. Anyway, looks like a cool place to visit if you’re in the Netherlands and like, what are these anyway, vintage sportbikes? We’re getting old.

    Wow, that is THE Collection!
    But are any of these bikes actually ridden and experienced?
    I worked in a Suzuki/Yamaha shop from the late ’80 s to 2006.
    This was in Canada and we had a lot of cool bikes around but to us back then we did not know how good we had it . I personally owned a TZR 250 and then a mint ’86 GSX-R 750 LTD and then after that a clean ’89 GSX-R750R.
    I was just a lucky young guy back then working at a shop and these bikes were my daily riders. In fact the 750LTD had over 85,000 KM on the odo before I got rid of it. I rode all over BC and Washington, Oregon and a couple of trips to California(The solo seat was actually a great touring seat.The 750RR I did a few track days at Portland and the old SIR at Seattle. I rode the shit out of both the bikes hooning around town,riding the back roads and going out to the track.
    I do not have any of these bikes now as a collector,but I sure am grateful that I got to really experience the riding pleasure these machine can give!
