Okay, that's pretty cool. I Googled "drysdale v8" and it seems they developed several different models, one based off enfield singles (did I read that right?), and another, still-born, MotoGP effort.

OK I know I have had plenty of bad things to say about Suzuki, and for good reason - but they sure know what gets my blood pumping....

It's not "they", it's he, Ian Drysdale! And you forgot the 2x2x2, 2WD, 2 wheel steer!

if you find it, please holler.

I'm guessing xr600 is as close as we'll get.


that's what I want today, with sticky, perfectly balanced, 21/18" street tires.

oh, can I have a red one, too, please ?

Never seen that particular SR500. I'm thinking the US version was strictly black/black. Was there a red one? If I was going thumper, it'd either be the SRX or the Yamaha 660-based MuZ.

Talking

Either the nc700x or the nt700v... Both fit in what I'm looking for, for my next bike...
