It's been a while since I've posted but...

Just came across this on my Google feed and needed to share.

Don't know about you but I'd bend my "carbs only" rule if Suzuki ever put it into production

It is indeed better than the one on offer , but could it be done affordably?

Agreed, looks like the intern had a go...
It's faster to break than to repair.

I may be completely mistaken, but could this be the same Nathan C that I worked with at Suzuki GB? The person who was, shall we say, at that time and totally my opinion (is that enough now for the lawyers?) not the sharpest tool?

The first person in the UK to crash a TL1000S? This was all so very long ago, my memory is faded now. Sorry if it's the wrong guy I am thinking of.
