Suzuki Missed a Great Opportunity


Recommended Posts

The new guy from BC and his most excellent bike collection sent me searching the web for info on the Wes Cooley Replica GS 1000 S and I find out Wes had just passed away! :( 
His heyday in racing was just as I was entering into street riding so, I can’t claim to be a follower of his. But over the years I’ve come to appreciate his modest demeanor. 

Suzuki should of pushed hard to get a new WCR into production before his passing. 




Studying your garage art, I see you were a true fan of the man! :thumbsup:

Wow. Brings up sweet memories of Loudon many moons ago. Admired that guy for both his skills and humility. Met him in the pits and he was very warm and welcoming.

If you’re going to include travel in your story, “Ride Tales” would be the place. About your bikes and the WC visit, “ Motorcycle Talk” should do it. :thumbsup:

But with your resume, you can do whatever the heck you want! :rofl:
