R45/R65 Period Roadtests

I'm sure we all like to read period road tests of our bikes. We don't have a repository here on for such things and as the premier English speaking resource for R45/65's maybe we should.

I have 8 different magazine road tests in pdf format. I expect there must be  many more from around the world.   They are mostly too big to post as an attachment but the very least we could do is maintain a list of the Road tests in existence.

Here's my list for starters with 3 of them attached - forgive the R45 bias.

R45 1980   Classic Bike.pdf
R45 vs R65 1979   Which Bike.pdf
R45 400's Group Test 1982    Mechanics.pdf
R45 vs R65 1979    Motorcycle Illustrated.pdf
R65 1980    Magazine unknown.pdf
R65 1981 Revamp   Motorcycling.pdf
R65 1979  Cycle.pdf
BMW R65 vs Honda CX500  1979  Cycle.pdf
