The cost of van­ity

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Bikes of my life -

“I had to re­place the front mud­guard on my 1979 Suzuki GS1000S within a week of buy­ing it af­ter run­ning into the back of a car while ad­mir­ing my­self in a shop win­dow. I kept it in the front room of my rented house in Leeds for a time while paint­ing the wheels. Toured down to the south of France on it in 1984. Han­dled well but was very heavy.”
