A Note From The Owner

I would like to submit my much loved Nitrous Suzuki GS1000E for the bike of the month.

My name is Dave Welton and I come from Scunthorpe in the United Kingdom. I have met some great friends from all over the world here on the friendly GSR forum.

I bought my much loved 1979 model GS1000E in 1983 and I am the proud owner to this day.

When I purchased the bike it was completely standard apart from a black 4 into 1 Harris exhaust. Since those early days many a wage packet has been used to get it to the condition it is today. The engine has had a 1085cc wiseco conversion together with a billet clutch and a 50bhp nitrous oxide kit is fitted for the ultimate in acceleration. My fingers are worn down to the bone with polishing but it is worth it. Having rode many modern superbikes nothing gives me more of a grin factor than riding the big GS.

Thanks for this great GS site

Regards,
Dave Welton
