My dad collected the H1 and H2 bikes when I was young and a couple times he would let me take off and go ride around on them when I was 14-15 years old. I grew up riding 2 stroke bikes and had raced a couple enduros on them in the dirt by then so I could handle em but I was super careful. I knew they could hurt me so I took it easy in the corners and opened it up on the straights. I couldn't imagine owning one to ride around in high school whenever I wanted.... that's anarchy!

I really miss riding them. I think about putting an H1 engine in a modern frame all the time. I have a spare engine and I think the 500 would get better fuel mileage which would be nice if I wanted to actually go somewhere on it. Hmmmm...
