I have two; an SV650 and an old TS400 (that's in too may pieces to photograph). I use the SV650 for longer sport type rides or long days on the interstate. I dig the v-twin's good, honest, useable power. The fit and finish is fantastic and maintenance is simple. Its a good, solid, and affordable workhorse, without a lot of unneeded fluff.

Not quite. I had her listed so that I could get my BMW F650 in the garage and had so many low-ball offers from people who didn't even see the bike, I gave up on the sale. It was easier to just mark her sold so that I could stop the emails from the masses

Some of my Suzuki's past and present, I need to track down photos of many others from my past. We have a great Suzuki Dealer in my town, one of the oldest in the South East, great friends and fellow enthusiast.

Unfortunately my love affair with the RM250 has ended, Suzuki ceased the model and I rode a new generation Husaberg and made the switch.

I still own the restored PE250 and TM400 for the occasional vintage race.

Suzuki makes simple, reliable, no fuss bikes that suit the average rider.

My current rides.

DRZ400E (Australian Spec)



My 99 RMX250



From the past My old DR250S (with my then new XR250R)


And for me it doesn’t stop with Suzuki bikes

My Old Grand Vitara


And it’s sad ending


Replace with new Grand Vitara

About the Suzuki cars, I bought my wife the SX4 Crossover. It looks small on the outside but it very roomy on the inside. Also the all wheel drive is amazing in deep snow as we take it on ski trips quite often in the winter. Plus 30 miles per gallon. Glad we now chose it over the Subaru.
