Wish they had bikes like that around when I was 17ish. I would have been up to my eyeballs in lady-bits and that's an absolute fact!

 

Happy International Ladies Day btw smile.png

(by way of a bump, just a comment)

 

when i was 17ish you could ride any size bike. even suh as a kawasäki z9000. mind you, it would be doubtful that any pillion would be daft enough to ride more than the once.

I think that was the only restriction wasn't it? You couldn't take a pillion. You used to see GSXR 1100's blasting about with L Plates on.

Heh, never got the chance to ride one. Were they as much of a beast as I used to imagine? I imagine they were quite unforgiving?

I weighed around 9 stone in those days but never had a problem with handling. Saying that, it was a case of throttle open and hang on, I had more bottle in those days...

My uncle had one of those GSXr's. And an Ex_Up Yamaha. Remember them?

 

Quick bikes in their day.

 

The RC30 is my all time favourite - worth a lot of money now in mint conditionthumbsup.gif

The old RD's could be a handful, frightened myself a couple of times on the 350.

 

For 18 months I rode around London and the south on a GS550e, Manx reg and displaying 'L' plates, with my old green paper, hand-written Provisional and Ballabrokers insurance docs. Was stopped half a dozen times, once carrying a pillion passenger. Each time, I rode away from a plod scratching his head over what he'd just seen and heard, which was basically, 'that's how it is on the Isle of Man', a place some of them had never heard of! That was some bike, my favourite pose-machine with Marshall 4-1 pipe, cut down seat and ace bars. That year's model was the lowest height Suzi produced too. Walkman's had just become popular and I'd fitted the phones into the helmet. Nothing like racing down to Brighton for the weekend on a summer's evening with Whitesnake blasting in the lid. Great times.

 

Apologies for going off-topic, did the bike get sold?

Lol. Er, yes indeed.
