    'Eager" 1979 CX500C Maroon.
    Name is derived from the sound of this engine at highway speeds.
    Like its eager to go.
    had a Horse that was "Eager"
    But didn't sound the same.
    So I called him "Duke"

    Cool bike! Reminds me of the 77 RS I had,,, about the tank tho, on time when feeding the solid core choke cable under the tank the end just touched the bottom lip, hit a paint bubble and poked a hole thru the rust! Mikunis a gr8 improvement, had them on the R60, complete with pvc plumbing pipes for intake tubes. Have fun, I see you still have a soft spot for BMWs, but a Wing for the road.
