You guys are killing me

Gave the Mastiff to the #1 son, and thought I could live without a thumper.
Someone block me from seeing this thread any longer.

My XBR (about 13 yrs ago)

It was the only bike I got emotional about when I sold it,with straight bars it would have been a great everyday hack.
No decent pics,but I stripped off all the non-essential plastic and fitted slash cut un-baffled 'silencers',a great scratchin' bike.

Sweet, if you did sell it I think there's be some serious self-flagellation in a few years/hours.

I'd love to see it in person.

A friend bought a Tour years ago and I think it's just rotting in the shed. I think that because he keeps his oil and filters in my garage and I haven't seen the bike in a while.

Great bikes, intuitive handling and pretty good power for a thumper. I'd like a bit more flywheel though.

As promised - if anyone cares...

Now that I can post pics again, here's a few of my old racebike ~ a '75 Suzuki TS-400 2-stroke. Front end and disc brakes are late '70's GS Suzuki, custom chamber by Dave's Exotic Exhaust in Colorado Springs, Tomaselli clipons and rearset controls, tach by Drag Specialties and wheels by Woody's Wheel Works. She was fun to ride.....and among the fastest on MRA racedays in the rain. Gotta love Metzelers!
