Back in apprentice days I did my TAFE training with the nutter hanging off the back of this thing.

He was the 1000cc sidecar world champ.



What a loose unit that dude was.... ;)

Picked up an old banger ‘85 Suzuki GS1100G to restore and add to the harem. I bought one of these new back in ‘84 and always regretted selling it. Not looking to make look concourse, just used but not abused.
Hows the restore going...

Mate (strangely his name is snow too!)still has that GS1000S sittin in the shed

How's this for bad luck?
Recently, Troy Bayliss was injured in a bicycle accident and now Alex Rins has a broken wrist, from a treadly prang!

Remy Gardner has a MotoGP offer, too!

Come on guys, the last thing we need is some more PlayStation warriors
Every time they turn up at the track they hardly make it out of the carpark
Although you can normally spot them, so you can take up a good vantage point first
No point telling them anything, they've done it all before from the safety of their lounge chair :cheers:

Yeah those old 4 strokes were heavy beasts
I had an IT200 when I was about 20, then raced the first of the water cooled KDX’s in the early 90’s before going onto KX250’s
My mate has an IT250k so can’t wait to show up at a trail ride with them both on the back of the Ute  :laugh: :laugh:
