Your Collection: 1982 RH82 SuzukiSunday, January 20, 2013 | 5:00 AM
This weeks collection comes to us from Ed Tashjian.
I thought this would be a nice entry to your collection section. This is in honor of Georges Jobe' who we lost this past Dec 21, I never had the honor of personally meeting him, but I did have the good fortune of finding a very nice piece of his motocross Grand Prix history. This is one of his 1982 RH82 Works Suzukis, this is one of his bikes that he used to battle all season long with Danny La Porte and finished second to Danny that year. This bike here has the cylinder intake tract engraved with three GPs it was raced at (GP of Russia, GP of Pain, & GP of Holland). I've always been a fan of Suzukis and especially late 70s early 80s Works bikes and never got close enough to see how cool these were until after I acquired this bike . As I mentioned I never had the honor of meeting Georges, and I'm sorry about that and very saddened of his passing. These photos are in honor of Georges Jobe. RIP Champ.
