Suzuki C90T (Boss) / M90 thread

I know this will be a hugely popular thread as everyone who's anyone owns one of these bikes . I am big suzuki fan, and I am surprised the C90T isn't a bigger hit than it is. I'd like to discuss the merits of, and anything else pertaining to this bike.

Some big pluses that I see are:
A proven engine
Drive shaft
No valve adjustments
Non tube tires
Massive facotry windshield
Best looker of the bunch
Suzuki reliability
and lastly... PRICE currelty see them available between $8-10k NEW!

Cons:
No ABS
Typical Suzuki cruiser underwhelming breaks
Undersized bags

PICS are always welcome! My favorite by far is the all blacked out 2013 c90t Boss, which i think is the best looking bagger currently available on the market!

What say you?!

(this isn't me btw)

I think the C90 is a lot of bike for the money for the reasons you noted.
It takes a bit of a maverick big cruiser rider to get one over the image brand. I think the Suzi rider is more a rider than some others.
I don't think the bags are too small though, compared to similar bikes.
The M90 is just an in your face bike, I'd love to have one.

Looks like the perfect bike for long rides on the slab.

Yeah, it definitely seems like a great mile muncher and doesn't try to be a HD copy cat, but instead brings some of its own character. I had a Suzuki m50 and really loved that engine. This bike seems like a bigger and more comfy version of that bike.

Can anyone that has done some trips on the c90t, or cummute daily on this bike, talk about how well it works in terms of general comfort? I'm not sure if the really wide handle bars are a good or a bad thing on this bike.

Very comfortable around town Marius
A little stiff on rough roads though (ie; uptown)
I get buffeting above 70mph solo, but not with my wife on the back
This is my 4th Suzuki (although my 1st cruiser ) and it did not disappoint

Oh nice! Someone who actually knows the roads around here... I decided to set my vstrom up to do it all (partially because of the roads), so im not getting a c90t after all. But, I still think its a sexy looking scoot. Just sucks that its not so popular for some reason.

I really like the BOSS package, very well executed.

( figures that wasn't you...not unless they dropped a mountain on LaPlace...)

I was just thinking about your issues.

Seems you should be able to get a mustang seat for the bike which will give you some cushion and take the edge off the stiffness.

Buffetting is often times solved by installing some lowers on the front forks. The factory screen is nice and big, so I doubt replacing it will get you any benefits.

Those two mods could take it from a good bike to an exceptional bike!

On an unrelated note, my uncle was named Marius, and he used to live in Metairie. Small world....

Love the boss

I bought the c90t boss last fall and absolutely love this bike. Handles great, great speed and really comfortable. I put a bat wing fairing on it. That completely changed the looks for the better. Wish i could get a little more sound out of it without changing the pipes. I like the looks of the pipes.
