      Life progressed in 1981.The first space shuttle, Columbia, was launched, Prince Charles and Lady Dianna Spencer were married, Muhammad Ali retired from the boxing ring after 55 wins and five defeats, AIDS was identified, Britney Spear was born and Malcom Fraser was Prime Minister of Australia.

Suzuki put a lot of effort and in money in developing a shaft drive that didn't have the negative effect the shafties always had, lifting the rear end when accelerating, and managed quite well. ”It is actually the first shaft driven motorcycle we have ridden that feels like it was chain driven”, a reporter from a Swedish bike magazine wrote back in the early eighties.

The bike is a total unrestored example of this famous marque, the seat has been recovered. The exhaust has been replaced with a four into one which was the requisite in the 80”s.Mechanically the motor is in perfect running order and purees like the day it came out of the factory.

So what’s the attraction? To be in pretty much daily use it has to be one thing above all: comfortable. It’s still the most comfortable bike I’ve ever owned. This is partly to do with the big seat but mostly it’s about the riding position. It’s a classic sports tourer or daily commuter.
