gotcha. very cool, ive had my share of triples as well. very nice.  dealer option dual disc setup is worth BIG money today, well over 1k in parts alone.


 :great:

my first rd plate ended in '666' by coincidence, still have it (but on the wall). i did have it on my FBG drag h2 for a while back a few yrs ago.  :beerchug: but the vibes killled the plate mounting hole so i had to retire it.

1995 ZX1100E - GPZ 1100
Rode this bike to the Mt. Snow rally in VT.  Basically a ZRX1100 motor - exceptionally smooth.


1979 KZ1000 MKII
Blast from the past - had it in the early 80's.


1981 Honda xl500s
A little project brought back to functionality as a dual sport.  Not a museum restoration, kept the patina.


1994 Suzuki DR350
dual sport - had it out to Cortez, CO rally.

The V-Strom got a new seat. Had the stock seat built by Tom Simmons customs in n/w Arkansas. So far I've only made the 175 mile ride home but it felt great.

I'm looking to have happy a$$ now!  :) The stock seat was brutal to say the least.

Sorry I never got back on this thread Cliff.
Like your new seat!
I went ahead and bought that VStrom. Know what you mean, stock seat is not good-
I went with a Seat Concepts tall foam/cover kit and am happy now.
Enjoy! :beerchug:

Here's my restored '67 Bridgestone 350.  I'm the first and only owner. 

Built back when each and every part of a motorcycle was styled to be attractive and visible, not covered up by plastic!

Remember, much of what you see on-line is wrong or misguided, your task is to filter that out!

 'As I recall' was jonesing for one a few years before the '67 350. Early 60's Probably looking at the 175 twin in the local hardware store.

Suzuki GS1100E

My favorite bike


I had a 1980 Suzuki GS1100E, a burgundy one, when I was 21 years old, 57 now, and it was one of my favorite bikes that I have owned.    For 1980 there wasn't a better bike to be had, my opinion.

agreed, I would love to find one and restore it...

I can't even remember how many tires I went through, that thing was a burnout monster
