    Default November BOTM

    And, there she is, my first GS. Except mine was an 78, with slightly darker red paint. I really like to see those old bikes preserved as well as this example. Also good to see the boats are still upright even with the tide out.

    Precious memories, Yep, that was exactly my first "real" motorcycle, even that color. Got a deal from a guy who bought it new, made down pymt., paid appx 6 pymts. then I just took over pymts., great deal but (I thought) way bigger than I wanted or needed. Year later traded it for GS 1000. Love seeing these old bikes. A buddy of mine that lives just down the rd., still has & rides his old "78" GS750C he bought new.

    Yep, another beauty. Very worthy of the BOTM title.

    I noticed the bright shiny exhaust, rekon what brand or where they came from, my buddy's "78" has a pretty bad rusted out exhaust & he'll probably be looking before long.

    That tide and email address suggest the owner is either in the Maritimes or on the Gaspé in Quebec.
