Well Terry... it's a good shot technically. It just doesn't do anything for me.:-?

I don't mind. I'm making all my mistakes now!

Hey, how's the Gold Wing?

I own a 1978 Suzuki GS 550 myself.

I used to own a 77 GS550. I rode that bike back and forth across the country. I wish I had not sold it to my brother.

Cool!

They were a technical marvel in their day.

I still can't believe how good (most) of the engineering was on this bike for 1978.

After Suzuki put electronic ignition on their bikes, and a little better carburetor arrangment - the bikes were as reliable as cars - except much faster and better handling

Do you have a picture of the bike?

Somewhere on a 35mm slide. I'll see if I can dig it up and digi it. One of the things I love on mine was the digital gear position indicator.

Yah, mine has that - plus 6 speeds.

The engine has amazing pull for a 550.

Suzuki really knew what they were doing when they launched the GS's.

Yeah, Suzuki has always built a solid bike. I've owned several Suzuki's and loved them all. My first was a 69 250cc X6 Hustler and my most recent a 2000 SV650.

Cool!

I had the 1999 SV 650.

Also owned the Honda VFR 750 at one point - real sweet bike!
