  1. Suzuki, in all its wisdom, called this a GOOSE!!!

  2. Maybe the Japanese word which translates to Goose in English also has another meaning??

    But then again, we DID have the Nissan Cedric back in the sixties........

  3. Surely the prize for the stupidest Suzuki name would have to go to the Grasstracker Bigboy.

  4. That is quite strange, I mean teh pic there is of a 2002 and 2003 model, and it looks like a bike right out of the 50's
    eaven Harlies have changed in that time.

  5. Mitsubishi did have the Starion.

    It was meant to be the big brother of the Colt -

    as explained to me by a former Japanese colleague (who works for one of the Mitsubishi companies) - "You know - Starion - big horse..." :LOL:

    Sometimes they get it right though, like the Hayabusa - a type of Japanese falcon that preys on blackbirds... :LOL:

  6. Maybe it was the nickname of the guy who designed it :LOL:

    I wouldn't mind one of the 350 models

  8. Look like one of those Bronz and Silver Hybusas would be the right bike for me then...

  9. Cars are worse. All these boy racers running around in a car called "Sylvia". No self respecting man would own a car called Sylvia. I laugh evertime I see one.
