    This was my triumph daytona from about 15 years ago. What a noise it made through its high level race pipe. I had 2 weeks touring the south of France on it one year, 2 up with luggage lol. I can still hear it now!

    Default Suzuki GS-850G

    Continuing a theme by Marco, this was my Suzi GS-850G, my only means of transport for a couple of years in the '80s. I wish I still owned her now - my son has had all the latest the latest models - Fireblade, Black Knight etc, but none feel as comfortable on a long cruise as did my 850G. Difference between the 850G and the 1000G, as far as I know, the 1000 had an aluminium engine with sleeved cylinders and the 850 had an all-cast iron engine block.

    Well I did not know that - I had always assumed the 850G was a bored-out GS750, but with shaft drive and GS Thou bodywork. All the early Suzy multis were handsome devils imo.

    You are quite correct, Steve - the 850 engine was based on the 750 but with bigger pistons/bore and the cams came from the 1000.

    My mate had a Tiger 110 years ago, it was a brilliant bike. He also had a 500 Speed Twin which was a good ride but had the reputation for catching fire......which his did in the middle of Brighton one Saturday afternoon.

    I have fond memories of my time with my GS1000S, it was everything I wanted in a bike back in the 80's. Sadly it came to a very sorry end involving a wet road, a diesel spill and a metal railing. R.I.P. old girl
