At least 6 RDs have a nice home. Well done MSD. Forget the Hummer, these 6 beauties are the crown in his collection.

It clearly shows he has a soft corner for this beast, even after having multiple RD's in his stable he is game for restoring his first RD bike, Respect Add to this that he has multiple other bigger bikes in his garage, his love this machine is still not gone. Wish I could get my hands on one from his stable,

I am glad that 6 bikes that may have been forgotten and not take care, have been attended to, given life and taken care as well.
If more numbers means show, then anybody will require only one vehicle for point to point transport and everthing else is unnecessary.
Recently my friend restored a 1979 bullet (no fancy, but original style and power) and sold it for Rs 1.8 lakh. If these RDs are well maintained for another 15-20 years, think of the monetary value those will fetch as a collectors item.

And looking at those paparazi shots (above), its pure passion that comes out in maintaining those bikes.
