On looks alone I think that bike scores a 10. This is the only thread I ever started and I want to thank everyone for their contributions and for keeping it alive.

Warchild: '79 GS850G. Not particularly fast. Not particularly quick. Reliable as a hammer. Cold-blooded as hell. However, when in the groove, you'll realize that something was done very well by her designers. She's my ridin' classic and a wonderful, watersmooth bike. She's magic. She's 32 this year.



When there's crosswind, this one will make you pay your dues. She corners like nothing else, and rides well on mixed terrain. Can you spell homesick angel?

Great looking SV. Who made the windscreen and the turn lights? I'm looking for something similar for my SV650 naked.

Bought it to haul my fat ass up to Prudhoe Bay and back. It did.

This pic was taken at Coldfoot.

Current daily rider: 91 GSXR1100..... RS38's, V&H 4-1, Dyna 2000, Dyna coils, coil spring clutch conv... no bike this heavy, this old, and this ill-handling should ever have this much power. (I bought it just like it sits, I know it's ugly as pizz..... planning on fixing it cosmetically when I'm done restoring the Thunderace I'm currently working on)



Immediately prior: 'fightered GSX750F Katana...... RS36's, V&H 4-1 header with pieced-together rear section, GSXR cams. Did 11.22 @ 124 mph at Norwalk Raceway with me on it.



Prior to that one: Another Katana 750. V&H 4-1, geared down a bit. Did 11.36 @ 119



And my very first street bike (11 years ago this past summer): 1986 GSXR750. Glad I grew up riding in the dirt, or I'd have killed myself on it.



I like Suzuki in general, but really what I like is the oil-cooled four-cylinder bikes. Old GSXR's, Katanas and Bandits...... the engines are bomb-proof, easy to work on, and have real character. Newer bikes have more power, but nothing quite kicks your a** like one of these old pigs. I've got a 75 mile commute each way, and there is no scarier or more fun way to pass it than perched atop the old GSXR.

Double Visions of Loveliness!

I was so pleased with the performance of my #1 DR (a 2007) I jumped at the chance to buy another one, a 2009 with about 3,500 miles on it. I actually saw this bike getting put together and the owner worked a couple blocks away from me. He only put highway miles on it and decided he wanted a faster sport bike. #1 DR is a female and #2 DR is a male so I kept them together in my garage for several months hoping they would reproduce another fantastic albeit smaller DR (with less horsepower) so I could try to learn riding single track. Darn - no babies!

I'm going to "farkle-ize" (instead of accessorize) my #2 DR next spring and get it ready to ride on Alaska's dirt roads. Next summer I'll ride my #1 DR down to the Lower 48 and store it somewhere with a warmer climate so I can extend my riding season. I'm looking forward to riding some of the countless dirt roads in the Rocky Mountains in various states. Whoohoo!!

This is my 2008 WeeStrom. Dollar for dollar, capability, function, reliability, rideability, performance, there is no bike on the market today that is more the "swiss army knife" of motorcycles. imho...

Looks like a bike that could take you on a long ride... say, to Alaska.



Surely, all those photos have convinced you by now. Or do we have to pull out the GOOD ones?
