This is video slidshow I put together covering the history of Suzuki's motocross machines from 1968 through 2018. It covers only the models offered here in the US only. I am aware some models and years differ around the world so keep that in mind.. This video covers the RM, TM, and RM-Z series of machines from 50cc to 500cc.

Great work as always, quite a few i owned over the years , and one we still have now.

Was intrigued to see the 1976 RM 100 had a mud flap on the front , as standard, always assumed the one on mine was an add on by the first owner , who funnily enough, tracked me down on FB recently after not seeing him for 35 years.

It's not basically a KX 100 with yellow plastic and Suzuki decals. That's exactly what it is.

Brother had a 2005 RMZ/KXF 250 and he would switch plastics from time to time and people were gullible enough to believe he had 2 bikes.

Lol yup, I had an 03 KX100 many years ago. Came with the silver frame instead of green because Kawasaki was just swapping plastics depending on which "brand" it was gonna be.
My brother had a RM65 at the time, made by Kawasaki.
And my dad worked at Kawasaki, with a bunch of Suzuki quads around.
Kawasaki really stepped up the 250F game when they ditched Suzuki in 2006. Sorry Tyler, the early Zook 250Fs sucked.

My first race bike- the machine of my dreams. The rear shocks were almost meaningless.

holy cow, that brings back memories. I went to that school in 1977 or 1978. I think Mark Blackwell was doing it. Class in the morning, riding in the afternoon. Lots of info on training and nutrition.
