The bike's a pretty easy guess actually, it's obviously WW2 and British, which means its one of 3, probably not a Matchless as most had telescpoic forks, so I had a 50:50 chance

It's one of the most famous divesites in the Red Sea. We left once from Hurgada Egypt, but didn't make it across the Gulf os Suez due to weather

I think that is a late 70's Suzuki enduro judging from the shape of the front fender and the sidecase.

I live in MD nr Wash DC. My sister & B-in-L, both ride, live nr Seattle. I flew out last summer. We did a multi-day ride along the Columbia River in Both OR & WA sides heading East. I rode his '79 Yam XS750. It was a heavy bike, but it was fun to ride, handled well, and had plenty of go. A very fun ride. One of my best for sure.





I sold this back in 2006 to fund my Triumph purchase. I had owned it since the late 1980's. This photo was from the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Show at White Rose, PA. It took "Best Yamaha" of the show.





This is my old race bike, a 1991 Yam TZ250, photo from Road Atlanta in 1992. Its vintage now. Interesting story, I posted and ad on a TZ250 forum w/ this picture and its SN looking for the bike. I had sold it in 1992 to a guy in Pittsburgh, retired from racing and went back to school. After seeing the ad a guy from WI wrote me that he owned it for a couple years, he bought in out of Pittsburgh but had sold it 10 or 12 yrs ago. To who he did not recall.

I had put my phone number in the ad, because if the price was reasonable, I'd like to buy it back, restore it, and park it in my living room in between vintage races. Anyway, a couple weeks later i get a call from some guy, he has it. He's in CA, but doesn't want to sell it. Maybe one day he will.

Thanks. I'll take credit for the photo, but the previous owner, rkjjeep, gets credit for the quality of the bike.
