srpackrat, you struck a chord with me here. I have had several get offs but only once on my GTR. way too fast into the hay bales at Del Ray Beach resulting in a high side which landed me on the bales. Relatively painless for me and ol' sista 350. Some of the others were on a Norton Atlas and a 450 Honda. Those involved road rash, road barriers, and other unpleasantness...yikes!! Too old for that $#!%...

         Yup, the engine sounds pretty sweet but notice the vibes on the tail end when the throttle is tweaked and seems to include the back end of the seat unit (at end of video). Could just be loose bolts, engine mounts or a tune up. The seat units do have a weak point in the middle, particularly if the base is corroded. Often thought they would benefit from an extra support at the back.    I'd still like it though.  :D ;D :D

I noticed that too Brian, everything was shakn' back there... seat/fender/tail light assembly & exhaust baffles. I'm sure it would make for quite a thrilling ride for the wife/girlfriend!  ;D  :o  ;D

Hey Brian, I can't answer the turn signal question, as I'm not sure I've ever seen BS originals. This is another video posted on YouTube by Dr. K, the same guy that put up the GTR video I recently linked. That bike was located in Japan and this one looks to be as well, so I guess it's possible they are genuine BS signals. Hopefully, someone with more knowledge will give us the answer.

Good to see an actual Bridgestone with this style of gas tank. I wonder what percentage of  90cc Bridgestones were sold in Japan?

Hi Bert and fellow BS enthusiasts, no this isn't number 3, it's number 2, there's no number 3 in the pipe line at the moment, the video was made a couple of weeks ago to simply show someone the GTR running, didn't even polish it.

I've been quiet on this forum for a good number of months now, about eight to be precise due to a health scare and consequently I lost some interest in motorcycles. To be blunt I had a massive heart attack followed by cardiac arrest but I'm good now and my life is back to normal, the only thing that's getting me down now is the constant raining.

I'll try to contribute to the forum now that I'm better.

Welcome back Lee.

Sorry to hear of your scare and can empathise asIi had a similar scare three years ago. Take your meds, listen to the doc and get on with your life. Works for me.

Looking forward to your contributions.
Be nice - feel good
