about vintagecollectorworld: The world is changing so fast that most people are losing contact with the things that really matter. We must remember that we are just here for a short period of time. So in this blog I am trying to show people some great stuff. I'll try to talk about super cool watches, cars, movies, motorcycles, places, music and more. There will be no logic in this blog but all you get to see is really cool. Cheers, Bernard De Vos

Best motorcycle ever produced - part two
Today the " best bike ever produced " post I did a while ago crossed my mind again. In fact I am not too sure anymore about my pick back then. Well, of course the Norton Manx is a fantastic bike but it's not really one you would take out every day for a little spin. And would you take it to the race track? I think not.
So if I could take another shot at it I think I would go for a mindblowing Japanese ( yes Japanese ) racing bike from the mid eighties, the Honda RC 30. In fact I should say Honda VFR750R, with "RC 30" being the frame designation. This motorcycles was first released to the Japanese market in 1987, then the US in 1990. It was a fully faired racing bike created for homologation purposes for the World Superbike Championships by Honda Racing Corporation ( HRC ). You can find more info on this model on Wikipedia.
Buying one today will not be easy but it is possible. You can even find them brand new, stored in a conditioned room. In fact there is one for sale on Ebay for only £39,995.00. It's one of the last 100 that were produced for the UK. So I suggest you take it and store it in your living room. Imagine the look in your best friends eyes when inviting them for dinner. No need for expensive art in your house that nobody really likes or can enjoy. Here the link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-VFR-750-R-K-RC30-NEW-UN-USED-/281124747854
