Buddy of mine had a GT750 , we used to call it the tea kettle. A real fun bike, the clouds of blue smoke complemented the groovy cool purple paint pretty good.

They would be welcomed by the likes of me. There are very few bikes here. I have seen a Suzuki 400 Katana and an old Yamaha FZ something, I've never seen them run. I have seen a few old Jawas and MZs running around though.



I guess I can wear my Kevlar hat for a helmet. I've seen some Marines on scooters doing that.

Default Re: You guys couldn't bring a tape recorder????

I remember helping a buddy tune his Suzuki 750GT for a dirt drag race. I have never been in such pain from noise. In those days we rarely used ear plugs and without them you couldn't be in the garage with that thing running. Those little stingers you see in the pictures are essential for life. An un-muffled two stroke of that size has to be heard to be believed. Go back there, have the good doc to take off those stingers and get a recording. I suggest moving the bike to the nearest uninhabited island before starting it up though.

Really. Gosh, as a former owner of a YZ125, I couldn't have possibly understood how it worked.



Dip*****. Go back to your cage and fling your own ***** at the zoo visitors with the other monkeys.

I think forcing them to ride Mach III's would have to violate the Geneva convention in some way.

They ran it again in 2002 with the same result. It's an experience I'll never forget.



The rider couldn't even make it down the straightaways without the bike getting completely sideways on him several times.

One bike tester thought the styling came from "The drafting board of a drunk jukebox designer".



I liked the 3 bulb tail light.



Along with the tastefull purple/white combo, I think you could get a nice lime green/beige edition.



I think only the Schwinn Stingray matched Suzuki for wacky color combos, back in dem daze.
