That all depends on what sort of parts you need, my friend. I have one of these machines myself, and I do love it, it\´s just as old as I am. Problem is, parts are terrible hard to come by. You and I happen to own an early model dual sport machine, made for sport riding and touring, and unfortunately, that means it didn\´t do too well over here. If you\´re close to Toronto, you could stop on over at Zdeno\´s Cycle. Those people have things ranging from the strange to the sublime. You could always troll ebay, like the rest of us sharks, whiling away your days looking for that one part you need until someone actually sells it. Or, you could cheat like absolute mad and find parts from anywhere in europe. This machine was the first Japanese V-twin sold over in North America, and the board at Harley took offense at it, and stepped up their agressive sales tactics. So this RH model sold for exactly three years over here, and was made for almost 20 years across the pond. The only difference is: Over there, it\´s called the Yamaha TR1. There\´s fansites galore for this baby in Holland and France, and anything you need you can get from a junkyard in Britain. Just be prepared for some heavy shipping costs.
