rust in landfills

yes it's true a lot of suzukis are gone but not forgotten.... I've had loads of suzukis and destroyed quite a few but they all started first time, they never let me down even in the winter when my mates were repairing the "character" of their ducatis.... Every Suzuki gave everything regardless of the punishment handed out... in fact they seem to thrive on my lack of mechanical sympathy. Suzuki is becoming a bit of a softy now and the GSXR is not the bike to be feared (either by the opposition OR the owner) but it's certainly easier to ride on the road.... Motorcycle evolution seems to be a roller coaster of peaks and dips and although a peak of revolutionary bikes would have been appropriate at the special time... it comes when development is at the very bottom (hopefully) of a 6 year dip and I hope Suzuki are going to bring out a real jump in evolution soon.

I've not read the last issue yet!

60 years of Suzuki. They've come out with some decent bikes over they years. Sadly let down by attention to build qaulity but who can forget the GSX750SE Katana when it appeared. Everyone I knew wanted one because it was space age at the time.

I'm hoping in 61 years of Suzuki, they launch the SV1200 :)

You can!

Jack Lilley are selling motorised bicycles. No, they are not Suzukis, nor are they Triumphs but they can be bought.

RG500, RG250GAMMA, RGV250, AP50 GT250X7, GT380, GT750,..............ahhhh I'm getting all retro and teary eyed for Suzukis but that could be the blue 2 stroke haze still in my eyes.

Then there was the RE5 Rotory.....
