    Turbo badge 1st rider

    Anyone seen this before? Bought it a while ago. It's a badge given by Honda to the first buyers of a 500T. Story goes buyers could collect there new turbo at the harbor from the ship and get this badge. Hope it's gold

    Never seen or heard of this before. Wonder how many countries may have participated in this? Be awesome if a retired Honda official could weigh in and fill in the blanks on many of our undocumented questions. I always found the lack of information from Honda on these bikes disappointing. I think you have quite a rare collectable on your hands!

    we are all given sh*t in life, but some of us learn to turn it into fertilizer and grow from it, and some us try to fling it on others like monkeys.
