After 29 years, she is registered, insured and on the road!

Hey all: Many thanks for words of encouragement and advice. I took my 81 MHR for a good cobweb release today, the first time I've ridden it for 29 years.

Looks like the dealer just shined it up good and rolled it out brand new.
Sweeeeeeet.

What a beautiful bike, something about that tank gets me all giddy every time I see it. Just plain love that styling-- great job!

Cheers

Really nice job Rick! Hmmmmm, no collector plates? Surely not a daily driver

The procedure in BC, Canada seems to be; get it insured first, apply for collectors plates, wait up to three months, get plates and a rebate on the insurance. I think. I'm going to ride it without the fairing for a few weeks just in case there are any tweaks required then put the fairing on, take the pictures required for the collectors plates and send the application package in. BC's monopoly third party insurance company ICBC is not bike friendly.
