on my nightly trawl through the massive resource that is the interweb i sometimes happen upon a real gem and here is one, god know's when and where but i'll hazard a guess at early eighties, the geezer on the #180 bike rocking the dave aldana 'skeleton' leathers could have been me, i bought my blue and white suzuki gee-ess in 1981, the original ice cream van as they were known, i rode it for, well about two week's and proceeded to chop the shit out of it, metchmachex ally swinging arm, harris formula one four into one pipe, marzzochi remote reservoir shocks and eddy lawson blue anodized bars with 'grip-on' big spongy grips, 'cir-cycle' bellmouths and yellow ht leads, i was the bomb me, matlock bath every sunday, i sent off to america for some 'bel-ray' oil sticker's, three week's later i got a 'letter' back with three sticker's in it, amazing, i read and re-read the compliment's slip and carefully applied the decals to my bike, anyway, back to the plot, gs thou, a couple of , what look like tz yam's and a norton commando leading the charge from the line, check out the  spectator's bell-bottomed jean's, fucking brilliant, big ill-handling four-stroke monster's vs dirty, smelly two-strokes with an o.b.w, [old british wanker, you had to be a reader of the old 'bike' magazine to rock this reference i'm afraid] chucked into the mix, happy day's...........
