Congrats on the Gamma! I'm sure we'll catch a glimpse of it around Barber in a few days. Enjoy! :dance:

Very nice to add to the collection!!! Congratulations  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The RG vs RZ 500 the gamma;s are a better bike I think- faster handle great and have good brakes.
The RZ500; I believe there were more of them made, than the gamma's so they go for a little less.
RZ500 [$8k-20k] RG500 [10k-30k]
They are both nice to round out the collection. The NS400 is a little rarer to find in good shape, they are a bugger to work on.

Have fun riding it...

Did Lance work on that one?

How would you compare this to the RZ500?
Are the RG's more desirable than the RZ500's??
I have ridden both RG and RZ and both are not that impressive in their stock condition, the RZ500 weight over 400lbs and it kind of falls in sports touring category. Modding these bike is a completely different topic and sky is the limit.
Things I like about RG500 - With very minimal mods, superior handling and a strong motor performance can be achieved. anddd they hold their value.
Things I dont like about RZ500 - too many motorcycles, lot of modding and $$ is needed to get good performance out of it. andd location of the rear suspension is not ideal.

Overall RG riding experience is very very nice.

Gamma's have long been my "Dream Bike". In WW livery of course. But now I think of the cost of maintenance and upgrades and realize they're just a bit too costly for my budget. I'd still love to ride one sometime and who knows, maybe someday the right opportunity will present itself. As for now, I'll just remain jealous haha. Congratulations on the bike, and enjoy.
thanks :thumbsup: I cannot afford WW and even if I could I cannot let them sit in the living room like a piece of art

Gammas have always been objects of jealousy for me. Enjoy it. Your collection of 2 strokes is stunning.
