Suzuki GS 1000 baby!
Accentuate the positive;
Eliminate the negative;
Latch on to the affirmative;
Don't mess with Mister In-Between.

Forgot how he could make that Suzuki look like a ballet.
Great rider, elegance on and off the track.



I feel like a ride the air is fragrant, I know what helmet I’ll use
Hit that line Wes...
Goodbye.

Cool film, thanks!  :cool:

I didn't know that he was a diabetic OR a pre-med student.

He certainly was fast, though!

Interesting that fellow Suzi rider Kevin Schwantz also rode as #34.

Great vid, thanks.
