The Winter of '88.. That was a long time ago...

I think I was flicking nipples as my girlfriend giggled while drizzling beer into my mouth....

Yes, a very long time ago.

In 1988 I bought the Hurricane, and still have it. I think I had some of those frozen nipples whilst I rode it home.

Nice pic. Your facehsield is kinda scary.

Thanks for bringing back some great memories and times! The days in college where I was so poor and working so much ... we had a saying, "will f##k for food." The mid to late 20's nurses at Mass General and other local hosptals were the best targets.

This was my dream bike at the time ... how funny now that it seemed so out of reach!


It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

I must be getting old, to me that picture looks like the 70's. Hell, 88 ain't that far back.

GS1100E huh? Did Suzuki make those in every damn size known to man? My dad and I had matching GS L's. He has the 81' 850, I had the 82' 550. Notice I said "has". He still rides the same bike he bought back in 82.

In 88' I was jr high, so I was still on my 1974 Kawasaki 100 enduro. Didn't get the Suzuki until 1990.

2015 Ducati Monster 1200S
