Question Who rode this bike?

What is it, who rode it, and when did they ride it?

It looks like a Suzuki GS1000S Yoshimura, but I don't know more for the moment.
Great looking bike

aris, you're right about the bike. What year was it and who rode it?

Tony, sorry, not Kevin...I thought that when I first saw it too.

Well, it's just a wild guess, but Wes Cooley rode those big Suzi's back when we had 1025cc Superbikes before. I just don't remember what number he used.

It was Wes Cooley's 1980 Suzuki GS1000 Superbike. History and additional information can be found at this link:
