Updates on my site
May 2006

Here follows the list of the new or updated stuff on my site. I try to keep this page up to date and write here every update on My Suzuki Pages that might interest you.

May 10
I have found the time and energy to make some updates on the site. There's some new Visitors' Suzuki pictures with comments ('02 GN250, '85 FZ50, '85 GS850G, '72 AC50, '83 GS1100E, '80 GS1000GL, '06 GSR600, '01 GSX1400, '81 GSX750E, '81ish GS1100E Turbo). The GSX1400 was also added to the Visitors' GSX1400 section. I try to follow with more updates in the following days. My music has taken much time and has been a priority for some time for me. I'm sorry about that, I simply don't find the time to do everything I want or should do. I try to do my best.

May 11: The GSX1400 model history updated. This seems to be the last year the model can be bought in Europe, at least in the UK.

May 12: Updated pages: VS750 Intruder model history ('88 specs), GSF1200S Bandit brochures ('02 Australia, pdf file), TM400 model history (Scott Andersen mailed me a scan from TM400 parts manual, he also managed to identify some of the riders on the ads), new Visitors' Suzuki pictures with comments ('86 VS700 Intruder, '03 VS1400GLP Intruder, '94 VS800 Intruder, '05 S83 Boulevard, '91 VS800, '72 GT550, '81 GS1000G). Many of the pictures/comments were mailed to me very long time ago (some actually over a year ago). I'm terribly sorry about the long queue. I try to update the site more frequently this year. I really do..

Also these pictures/comments were posted to me ages ago. The GSX1400s also added on the Visitors' GSX1400 page. One of the bikes was bought only an hour earlier, but that was in January 2005... And another guy mailed me pictures of his GSX1400 that he managed to legally import into USA, the first GSX1400 ever in the US. That was in October 2004... Pretty old new by now, I know...

Sometimes I get mail from people who complain that their favourite model is not on my site. In many cases they haven't even bothered to look properly or used the search engine. But there are still many models missing. I'm doing my best and will fill in the gaps as fast as I can. This is not my profession; I'm doing this in my spare time. I could use some help to be able to get more things done. Please send me pictures, brochures and specs or complete model histories... Anything at all that can make the site more complete. Here's more info.

One more thing: PLEASE visit the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) pages before sending me questions about your bikes, manuals etc. I would love to help you all but I haven't got enough time to do it anymore. You may find an answer to your question on the FAQ pages, check it out! Frequently Asked Questions
