Fine Run

Lake Loop

A great day up to Lake Geneva through McHenry County on roads bordered by spring blooming trees and emerging leaves. We stopped in at Morries Place where we spied another workshop filled with project bikes. An interesting cove called Jim was working on a 1929 Henderson X. A splendid Triton parked outside near to where Ed Zender was working on a BSA.

Bandit ‘n’ Buildings

City livin’

Another urban ‘cycle parked next to the Chicago River near the Merchandise Mart. Skyscrapers reflected off skyscrapers. A smart ruby red Suzuki looks the part.

Commuter Suzuki

Off to work

– spied on Lake Shore Drive on my way into work today. A well used V-Strom carrying its owner into the City. The decal clad top box says this rider means business in urban traffic.

In front of Runge’s

Gee Ess Ex

– picking my car up from the mechanic this week I spied a thirty years old Suzuki 1100. Detuned GSX-R Slighshot engine was given a low maintenance shaft drive and relaxed seating to created a daily rider. This idea was continued in the very popular Bandit model range. Good sting bikes.
