Hello guys, Its been a pretty nice riding season so far here In MI and I have been riding My 00 Rc since Jan if you can believe that.. Love the RC!...... BUT I do have a very long standing passion for another bike mainly in the form of an old two stroke.. I have been into late 60's early 70 suzy two strokes for a very long time.
Well ok so 20 years of my 30 so there ya go but I will say I know my shhh.... at one time a few years ago I had 12 bike in a two stall and the wife wasn't happy with the Van outside...( Well I did clean up the garage and have since moved some bikes and thats what got me the cash to buy another.. Yep my RC.....
But ok so today I was doing some moving around and cleaning and grabed the bars of my beloved 1970 Suzuki T250 cafe to move her around and I got the itch to fire her up.... well that went from a simple fire her up all the way up to hunny I'm going to be out for awhile phone call.... What a blast!
I know basicly zero of you guys other than what what great stuff I have read from you all but man O man if you have never had the chance to ride an old smoker your missing out.... Kinda cheap...... Super easy to work on and that sound.... oh the sound Buuurrble burrble pop pop burrble its addicting like an RC's sound.. and the rush that comes from getting on the pipe and rinnnnging one out is something that feels wilder and more intense than the surge of an I4. Not faster but just the sensation of the baaAAAM on the pipe! Yanno?

Nope I'm not going to add the list of bike I own in the signature but I will give ya a short list..68 T500 cobra 100% , 72 T500 100% , 70 T250 chamberd and swiss cheezed out cafe racer , 67 TC 250 Highpipe 100% , 74 waterBuffalo 4ls chamberd , 75 GT550 , 76 GT500 , 76 RD Daytona and my girl...... 00 RC with a short but good list of mods....

Oh man yeah thats a rare one for sure.. Talk about on the pipe... That bike can more than double its output to 90+ hp in a 2000 rpm increase! Whoa that would be a rush. Oh and a mear 15 grand to start for a nice example!

If anyone needs any suzy parts from t500's or T250 I most likely have them or know where to get them..
