The CB175 was a RARE sight when I was growing up (in Hull), there were more CDs than you could shake a stick at of course, but most sub-200cc bikes were the Suzi GT125/185 and the Yam RDs. The DT and TS trailies were popular too.
Suzuki TS 125 was my first bike and what I learnt on in the early 90s. A little 2 stroke that made my leathers smell but I loved it. My dad found it lying in an overgrown garden rotting away and completely rebuilt it from scratch.

2 strokes ran well in cool damp weather, but in hot dry weather such as we have been having seemed to lose a lot of their 'ooomph'
