I dedicate this post to my great friend Doc. This is one of my very rare pictures that from a young age that survived the flood. From the age of 15 until I was 42, I was a big fan of heavy motorcycles. If I remember correctly I had about 10 maybe some more. It was my habit to change my motorcycle every 2 years and these were all new. In 1980 I bought this great Suzuki which I had for 6 years. I took another new one to Trieste where the masters painted it for me and painted it in Lucky Strike colors. Painting and stickers cost me an extra $ 2,000. It was the most beautiful and best motorcycle for me. It had a staggering 120 hp and 15,000 rpm for those times. This was a real road beast with which it was not a problem to drive over 250km / h.
This engine was really my big love – I had a hard time separating from it only then I wanted to be up to date with motorcycles ….. here too the technique progressed very quickly so I then bought a few other brands

It looks sexy. You did really enjoy riding several models.
Thanks for viewing and a friendly comment, my friend…..I really had quite a few different models … I was poisoned by adrenaline and high speeds
I can imagine that…the speed, cutting corners…there is a thrill motorbikes offer that cars don’t offer.
Today, the choice is really amazing …. they are already approaching 200 hp and speeds of 300 km / h
Wow! Speeds up to 300km/hr. They are quite fast nowadays.
Really this is no longer normal … but they will fly a little more …. serial engines should limit both speed and power of engines ….. locks should be inserted
That must have been a lot of fun to ride. I like the look of the motorcycle,
Thanks for viewing and a friendly comment, dear Sandra…..riding such a motorcycle is always fun and full of adrenaline and also very dangerous
Wonderful engine. I didn’t know you were so excited about engines.
Thanks for watching and kind comment, dear Vidocka….over the years, this obsession has also passed
I assume you made good use of the “obsession” in your youth.
There was really enough of everything (adrenaline, foolish doing, high speed) …. sometimes I think and wonder which guardian angel was guarding me …. there was adrenaline and a lot of unnecessary nonsense …. now that I’m I realized that the proverb is still true – youth is madness …. you think you are the only and untouchable ….. but nothing can happen to me …. sometimes I really wonder and I do not know who to thank to I’m still alive
As I see it, you were very lucky. Good thing the obsession has left you. I don’t know if you can be lucky all your life.
I totally agree with you ….. once luck leaves you ….
What a great looking motorcycle.
Thank you for your visit and nice comment, dear Carol
I Ride a Yamaha 175 Dirt Bike. Best Bike EVER
Thanks for viewing and a friendly comment………….
First my dear friend I thank you for the kind words!
what a beautiful motorcycle. 250 km *150 mph) seems very fast.
I suspect you had many fun times massaging the engine seeking more power!
Thanks for watching and kind comment, dear friend…..we experimented a lot on exhaust systems …. up to 30 hp could be obtained here … my good friend was a great connoisseur and today is one of the largest and most recognizable manufacturers of exhaust systems (Akrapovič) … they are also used by factory teams from moto GP … I think Yamaha and Dukati and probably some other team
that is the coolest information ever! i can see you tinkering with the system for the extra horse power.
so cool, thank you so much for sharing this.
These were interventions that we could interfere with …. we were not allowed in the engine because then we would lose the warranty ….. a lot could be done on the brakes ….. for a better and smoother ride …. we replaced the metal discs with carbon ones
that is so cool though, i do understand the warranty issue – but still so cool
We did a lot of things and we could have done even more just by not touching the powertrain itself
That really is a lovely motorbike. I would never be able to get on it though lol.
Thank you for your visit and nice comment, my friend…
Such a great motorcycle. I would love to see more pictures of your other motorcycles. Amazing hobby
Thanks for viewing and a friendly comment, dear friend…..I had a lot of pictures but carelessness ruined them all … I hope to find some more …. it was a really nice palette of emergencies
