    I don't ride any more. But back in the day, I rode a 1973 Suzuki GT380. It was a 3-cylinder 2-stroke machine with 4 tailpipes. In 1973, your coolness factor was determined by how many tailpipes you had. It was a good touring bike. 380 cc sounds small for highway touring, but, being a 2-stroke, it had lots of power for the highway.

    I'm currently motorcycle free. I sold my 09 HD Dyna FXD last year, and just two weeks ago finally parted with my complete custom build '13 pro-street rigid chopper. Boy, did I take a beating on that one. (both physically and in price when I sold it). My back is getting too old and problematic to do it as much as I would love to, and the traffic and drivers around here.....well, I won't even get into that.

    Back in 68, the 1200CC Electra Guide was the only bike I knew of that had an electric starter and I knew someone that had one. As I recall it also had a kick starter as well.

    I remember those old Suzuki two-stroke bikes. They were fast.

    Picked up a Kawasaki 500 triple two stroke years ago and couldn't wait to show it to my Dad. (He rode Indians) When I got to his house he came out to look it over. I was bubbling with enthusiasm about the power to weight ratio, 0 to 60 time, high RPM, etc. He listened patiently. When I was thru singing it's praises I asked him what he thought. "Well,I think that machine is going to go a long ways towards cleansing the gene pool.", he replied. A Fathers wisdom. Regards, Bill

    I had a 1976 Yamaha XS.

    wretched XS.jpg

    "wretched XS" - purchased for $200, it was lying under a pile of scrap building materials.

    I provided some love - converted it from points to electronic ignition, put on some dropped bars, mikuni slide carbs, and wafer thin saddle, taller gears, and sportster pipes. It thrived on the attention.

    A nice cafe racer for a number of years. Beautiful little bike, fun to go for a cruise. I dreamed up a plan for a 270* crank install. Then, children.
