Suzuki GT-750 cc water cooled 2 stroke triple .in UK known as "The Flying kettle"

Canada

My Best Man,Alan J.McConnell,now of 851,Corvina Avenue ,Davenport ,Orlando, Fl. USA, had one of these in the mid-1970's.As I was riding pillion on London Bridge one day,he got the handlebars stuck between a truck on the rhs and a bus on the left.Putting his left foot down to steady the bike resulted in the bus driving over his foot.In June 1977 again pillion on the flying kettle,we rode to Wrexham to see a Home International football match;Wales vs. Scotland.One of the more boring goalless draws I've witnessed down the years.On the return journey,52 miles on A and B class roads to get to the M6 motorway,then blatt it as fast as it would go back to Dulwich in South London.We stopped twice for fuel.
My thanks to Roger for the use of this image.

The best bike I ever had! Although it threw me off regularly I love it. Had mine FAB 738S from 78 to early 1980. Great memories used to go to the footy on mine too, regular trips to Goodison Park from Droitwich with my girlfriend Hazel ;), great stuff Ian keep 'em coming!
