Can't explain why I like them so much. My 1st "real" motorcycle was a 1968 Suzuki TC 120, a 3 speed with the dual range tranny. Next was a 1972 TC90. Same dual gearbox but 4 speeds! My next Suzuki was a brand spanking new 1978 PE 250. God, I loved that bike. Sold it after a while, only to get another of the same model soon after. Took a long break from bikes, trying to be a family man. luckily for me my step son had a dirt bike, and it's been game on since I sat on it!!!! that was about 10 years ago.
These 2 are my current rides, and I also have a 1982 PE 175 in the basement, all rebuilt and looking purty, should have brought her out for the pic too. The 76 is just a cool bike, and listening to the 2 stroke triple will just...........f'n awsome. Bought the '12 vstrom this past spring, and I love this bike too. Good thread!
