I've never been much if a Suzuki fan. Mainly due to lack of experience with the brand and not many dealerships where I've been.
This year I picked up a vstrom 650 for the wife and its grown on me. Easy maintenance, fairly bulletproof, inexpensive, but most of all...it makes her extremely happy too ride. She went from a Vulcan 750 to this after trying lots of others (BMW 650gs, versys, etc) but nothing felt right for her until she tried this. Loved it immediately. One of the best bikes I've picked up and hope it makes her happy for a long time.
