I had a '74 model back in around '79 or '80. It had the four leading shoe front brake that I never could get adjusted correctly. It was not particularly fast and it certainly was not good handling. Gas mileage really sucked too as low 30's was about all it would get.Suzuki GT750 "Water Buffalo":
I rode one (a '73 IIRC) way back when and it was so smooth and quiet that one would think it had a electric motor...
And I had three Yamaha RD400's! A red one, a blue one and a Daytona. The Daytona was white and the last year they were sold here in the US. They are quite the collector bike now I understand. Alas, many of the bikes that I used to own now have collector status!I always regretted not getting a GT550
I did okay with the RD400 tho for many years 'cept it wanted to foul plugs.
Sort of like coming at the supermotard concept from the other direction and overshooting a bit into the adventure-touring classAh the Scarver....that's still on my Australia list for a long term ride. Brilliant machine.
I'm still inclined to the CB500x tricked out...
