Suzuki’s recreational vehicle

I really liked Steve Cooper’s article on the TC range.

As a bit of a side order I have owned RV 125cc sand bikes since 1974.

They came in three sizes – 50cc, 90cc and 125cc – and I think the first came into the UK in 1973.

My wife Kay took her test on the red one and went straight out and bought a 1340cc Harley, which she took to the TT the very next week.

The yellow bike came to me from a friend who deals in number plates as it had number one on it.

Also it was George Best’s chauffeur’s bike, and it has done 2000 miles from new.
