Re: Suzuki X5 long term project

One of the bolts from my caliper was missing, so routed around on the net to find that only genuine parts were available at 27.00! I started to do a little homework and found that a 1978 gs550...

Re: A few pictures from our round Britain trip.

Cheers bibio. Rhosneigr was taken by my missus, quite surprised she's not noticed the orb. Croyde is also her favourite place. I still say that you can't beat the Isle of man, such a wonderful place,...
