visitors' Suzuki motorcycles
|Bill tells us that he is a 55 year old architect
living in North Alabama, USA. I just bought
my 2002 Bandit 1200S on May 15, 2004 and have discovered
a whole new world of motorcycling enjoyment I never
knew existed. he says.

2002 Suzuki GSF1200S Bandit
Owner: Bill Thomson, 55,
Huntsville, North Alabama, USA
Comments: After 29 years without a motorcycle, in 2000,
I bought a cruiser, drove it for a year and a half, then went
to a 1991 Suzuki VX800 for a more sporting ride, now this Bandit.
The Bandit is like new with about 8,500 road miles of use. No
need to go on and on about the virtues of this bike.
The previous owner did all the enhancements. It has Holeshot
stepped ceramic coated header and polished street can muffler
system, stage one jet kit, timing advancer, stainless steel
brake and clutch lines, and the upgrade gel seat.
This bike will just fly. I love it.
|Trevor would like to know what bike these meters
belong to. Please could you help me identify
this speedo head I have found in my shed. It may be
from a TS model. Also like to find out the year.
You can send
mail to me, Jarmo. I will forward the messages
1986 Suzuki TS125 (perhaps)
Owner: Trevor Percival,
East Yorkshire, England.
Comments: I have had various motorcycles including Suzukis
and currently have a Honda XL500s.
I have been having a sort out of bits in my shed that I have
accumulated over the years with the intention of selling them,
sooner than take them to the scrap yard so someone might benefit
The speedo head is really the only item that I don't remember
which model it came from but I did have a TS125 1986.

|Here is a photo of John's CB750 Honda and
my GS750 (and I when I was much thinner) when we were
parked on Pacific Coast Highway in California. This
has to be one of the best motorcycle roads in the
world for scenery,” Gary tells us.

1977 Suzuki GS750
Owner: Gary Noname, USA
Comments: I had a blast going thru the site looking at
the models I owned which were:
Hustler - first real bike after a Yamaha 90.
- first NEW bike. Cost $800 and worth every penny.
- next new bike.
- Gypsy Red. Man was that one gorgeous motorcycle.
- Last Suzuki I owned.
This one went on a 6,000 mile trip in '77 from Tampa, Florida
to San Diego, California to Eugene, Oregon to Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Camped all the way. Was one of the best experiences of my life
and I still get nostalgic over it.
Bryan Killen's '73 GT550K (front and rear).
Ray Belisle's '82 GS1000SZ Katana.
1973 Suzuki GT550
Owner: Bryan Killen, Key West,
Comments: Here is a picture of my '73 Suzuki GT550. I
snagged it from ebay in April '04 from a guy in Pennsylvania.
It is in original unrestored condition (which happens to be
great) with 6,500 miles on it.

1982 Suzuki GS1000S Katana
Owner: Ray Belisle,
Comments: My name is Ray Belisle and I live in Western
I bought a 1982 GS1000SZ from a friend who has stored it in
his basement for three years since the carberaters gummed up.
He was unable to find old Mikuni smoothbore parts, so the carbs
were still apart.
I contacted Sudco out of CA. and came up with everything. I
changed fork seals, wheel bearings, swingarm bearings, braided
lines, and polished the carbs inside and out.
New Metzlers from Germany, a new windscreen from New Zealand,
and a lot of elbow grease. It has 10,000 original miles and
I just put my first 50 miles on it. It is so strong, smooth
and powerful, it's hard to believe it's twenty-two years old!
This 2004 riding season will be the best ever!

1980 Suzuki GS450L
Owner: Dan Foukes, Saint Clair shores, Michigan, USA
Purchased: July of 2003
Mileage: 6,900 miles
Original condition, no modifications
Comments: I recondition old Japanese motorcycles from
1970 to 1985.
I got a deal on a 1980 Suzuki GS450L last summer. I got it working
and ride it to work every day I can.
I liked the bike so much that I bought seven of them from a
savage yard and I am going to build them and sell them on the
1985 Suzuki GS550L
Owner: Nicholas Smith, England
Purchase date: July 2000
Modifications: Carbs from GS550ESD, clocks from GS650L, Metzler
tyres, Some 'hippy' swirls and stars painted on by previous
Comments: Great zippy 6-speed gearbox makes it good for
getting through heavy traffic. Love the custom look.
Being a Grey import, she is very difficult to get parts for
- hence the mis-match carbs and clocks. Exhaust will be a problem
to source too!
She is advertised on ebay, if anyone is interested!

1988 Suzuki RGV250SP
Owner: Ardi Prawira,
Purchased: May 2004
Mileage: about 5,000 km
Comments: The first owner has hardly ridden this motorcycle.
I like it very much.
This is my third bike, the first was a '01 Suzuki Shogun, the
second was a '51 BMW R25.
I'm very proud of the RGV250SP, there's only three of them in
my country. But it is very difficult to find spare parts here.
If anyone can help me, please e-mail me!
