    Hi, I bought an '87 TA about a month and a half ago. I have been very happy with it, and bought it as a replacement for my Suzuki GS500E that I had grown out of. I bought this bike because I wanted to do a road trip around Europe, around 2000km, and I felt I wouldn't really be comfortable on the...
