The Suzuki dealer in my hometown was a great guy, the other shops were less than friendly. I ended up working in the dealership and my first "Zook" was the 1989 GSX750FK Katana. 40,000 miles of joy.
After I sold the Katana, I found this 1986 GSXR1100 with only 3000 miles. It was immaculate and I loved every one of the 35,000 miles I rode with her.
Many years went by and I was living in Asia riding scooters etc. I finally got an opportunity to bring a bike into China and decided the DL650 V-Strom was the "do everything" bike I needed. It really is a fantastic motorcycle...a great balance of sport/touring/adventure... and the price was great too!
As much as I love the Wee-Strom, I needed something for the daily grind, so I decided to go with the QingQi QM250. QingQi is an official licensed partner with Suzuki in China. Take a DR200, slap in the TU250 engine and dress it up as a motard. I call it my "Suzuki with Chinese characteristics".
Will always love my Zooks...
