Still have another 300 Kms to break in my RD so I thought I'd pop in this in the next town, b4 work just to get few kms in. Took a couple pic's of some vintage (relative term really) bikes. Have more to add but only allowed 3. Never got to meet the TZR owner - shame. We were the only 2 strokers. Susie turbo was interesting. A Japanese vintage meet is happening next week - might attend that time permitting.

Wow, you learn something new every day, that FN (yes the arms manufacturer) was early 1900's and was the first 4 cyl production motorcycle. Is the powder blue one an Ariel square four?

The Susie Turbo was a 1-2 yr bike here on the US in the mid 80s. Was called the XN85 with the 85 being reference to HP. Was said to be a great handling bike. I saw one a couple months ago on Craigslist for a reasonable price but it was too far gone to purchase. Looked like it had sat outside for years.

Yep - Ariel square 4. There was also a steam powered motorcycle (more bicycle) - did not get a pic of it unfortunately.
