I learned to ride TT on a Suzuki T10! The Suzuki was the first Japanese twin made for export to North America. It was Suzuki's answer to the Honda Dream. I went into the Army in 67 and got stationed in El Paso. I bought the bike from a GI that was being transferred with no title. I ran it around for a year when got transferred to Korea still with no title. I paid $300 for it and sold it for $300. I don't think it ever had a title. To licence it you had to get someone to "lose" his plate out in the desert and have him get a replacement plate. Why we didn't all go to jail I'll never know. I'll bet that bike is still at Ft. Bliss selling for $300!

My contribution......... In 1967 I just got out of the Navy and gave 500 dollars for a Norton Dominator SS. The lady sitting beside me was a blind date to go riding on that motorcycle.

No problem! Anything is fine, and better than the funky plastic P/S caps.
On the subject of wheel widening; Lonnie Gilbertson at Gilbertson Machine does aluminum wheel widening also. He's located here in Portland, Or.

Went to the Audi Driving Experience today! It really was amazing. Got to drive the s4, s5, rs5, s6, s7, rs7, s8, and the R8. They really are amazing cars. Got to do a street drive, autocross, and road course. Yes, we got to sling other people's cars around a track, FOR FREE. You seriously cannot beat it.

Put a note taped to the inside of the windshield noting that it has no brakes. Sounds stupid but I HAVE seen it before! My brother had a mechanic get in a truck without a master cyl and run it into a fence! It can happen to most anyone, a little brain fart and WHAM.
