That reminds me! I still need to pull my CB400F out from under it's blanket and get it back on the road so I can sell it to fund my next project. It's too nice to be cut up though...

Too many projects... and this stupid little thing called work just gets in the way!

Actually, I first had a bigger bike, then decided to go for 3 scooters while
owning the bike (650R) and ended up selling the bike and staying on the
scooter alone.

It's not anything I didn't try or have before, it was just a good opportunity.

It'll still suck around town like any other bike.

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....
