The RZ was also the first Yamaha to use a perimeter frame and bears Kenny's signature on the front fairing. Looking at the pictures, there doesn't seem to be a ding on it and appears to have never been dropped. It is said that 20,000 RZ's were sold in the US, I'm sure that the number of survivors is much smaller today. Seems like with its low miles and clean, unmolested condition, you couldn't go wrong with this bike, although riding it down to the lower 48 might be an adventure you'd want to do with a friend.
