New Member saying Hi!

Postby Gixxer18 » Mon May 11, 2020 3:30 pm

Good Afternoon everyone, I’d like to take the opportunity to say hi and thank you for having me on your forum.
I currently have several Suzuki’s, listed later; and using the opportunity of the current problems to fettle my bikes.
I’m looking forward to using the knowledge available on the site to do so as well as offering solutions that I have used to help other members.
I’m currently working on a 1972 GT750 J, having just completed an 1972 A100 I found discarded in a skip.
You could say I like Suzuki’s!
With the exception of the A100, they are all non runners for the moment.

2002 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 K2
1994 Suzuki Katana 400
1985 Suzuki GSX550ES
1972 Suzuki GT750J
1972 Suzuki GT550J
1974 Suzuki GT380L
1972 Suzuki A100
1974 AP50
Regards
Nigel.

Hi Nigel,
Welcome to the forum. A wealth of knowledge on here so I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for. Plenty of urine taking as well.

Welcome to the asylum. Lots of info about 550s on here - I'm currently doing a J (and rebuilding an A!)
Which bit of the world are you self isolating in?

GT550s are the gaffer tape of the universe. If it's broken, they hold it together.

No Paul. that's the GT750J.
Remember now how your pink pig was always 'loose' and needed 'sticking plaster' to keep it happy? :tw

What we have to remember though, this forum is and always will be, called the "KETTLE" clinic.
Not the 550 clinic, or the 380 clinic, or any other clinic.
They were all "kindly" invited to join the prestigious KETTLE forum at a later date, and as an afterthought. ;)

And a big welcome to the forum Nigel, your intro was an interesting and pleasant change from the usual ramblings of a certain 550 fan on here, and I'm sure you'll see exactly what I mean shortly. :shock: :roll:
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".
