First time in a long time the bikes have been close enough to snap a pic. Tuned them both yesterday. White one is a 94 Suzuki DR350 and the red is an 89 CR 125. Got them both when they were 1 year old. Hey Steve, feel free to pull or move this thread because they are not British.

Here's the 1992 K75 just coming up on 99,000 miles.

Here is another German bike, A 1957 Maico Scrambler. Maico won the European 250 MX championship in '57 on a bike much like this. The scramblers are pretty rare, there are a few enduros around from this vintage. The scrambler has an oval section frame, closer ratio trans. and a modified engine. This is the only scrambler I have ever seen with the "lighting kit" still intact.
Check out the earls front forks.

I have owned a Sear-Puch “twingle”, a Harley 125 cc, a Rotax Can-Am 175 enduro, a Bultaco 125, a Montessa, a Honda 305 Scrambler and lots of other, more forgettable bikes.
I’ve run dozens of northeast enduros on a Kawasaki KDX.
And I’m an earned Life Member of the AMA.

Here’s my present street bike: an Honda Ascot 500 “thumper”. Narrow bars and rear-set pegs. The starter is weak (and no kicker) so I may have it rewound soon....I'm getting tired of bump-starting it.

I have an Ascot single too. Its black with a red leather seat.

There is a weakness in the starter mechanism on these bikes, which can get them parked permanently.

Fun to ride bike.

I have just under $1900.00 in this Shaft drive tourer. It handles well and is super comfortable. I really like it. Its kept up in Maine for when I visit there. It was purchased for a Nova Scotia tour I want to do. At home I have a brand new Kawasaki Concourse tourer, but this bike is very competent too.
