Having a Harley on the side of a C1 would be an insult to the C1 :twisted:

They say never ride your heroes and for years I dreamed of riding a Harley. One day I got my wish.

I was so disappointed. It was like riding a road drill :evil: It was absolutely awful...

At the time I was riding a Suzuki GT550. Those two-stroke triples were so silky smooth and comfy... Two things the Harley definitely wasn't...

I used to have a sticker on the tank of my Fireblade that said 'I'd rather push a Honda than ride a Harley"..

Hateful devices. Rode a couple in the past, it's like riding a park bench, but with worse handling.

That brings back some very happy memories Neil :D Love it in yellow...

That's an early one with the twin leading shoe front brake.. They were far better than the later *(lethal) disc brake...

Mine was black with gold pin striping and was a 1976 model.. The J on the end of the model name is the model year but I can't recall now how it went. As soon as I'm home I can consult my book of Suzuki bike history...

One bike I still want to own one day along with a Citroen SM is the Suzuki RE5, the Wankel engine bike...

Now that is exactly what mine looked like Neil :D Almost as clean too as I spent out and bought all new chrome for it...

Their big Achilles heel was the hard-chromed alloy cylinder barrels. The least 'nip-up' (still common then on big two-strokes if really caned) would wreck the cylinder...

I'd have another in a heartbeat...

I have room in my workshop...
