I just love the brand, period!

My dad bought me my suzuki because he knew the Suzuki dealer owner. I fell in love with my first Suzuki and am faithful to the brand. i know their engines and just think they are the best out of all the Japanese bikes. I never liked the colour red so Honda was out for me anyway, although i'm sure a good brand.

Sorry for the late reply planemanx, but yes , we had an old knackered microwave oven with a staineless steel skin so because i don't like throwing anything away i chopped it up and made the box , it's around 3.5 in x 5in x 12in and sealed with silicone.
I looked at tool tubes but mine cost nothing !!!

I am not a brand loyal person but always seem to have a Suzuki in the lineup.. I had a GSXR 600, GSXR 750, TL1000R, GSXR 1000.....Personally I think I was faster on the GSXR 750 but the GSXR 1000 had the warp speed roll on power.

Below is a highly modified DRZ 434cc. I like the DRZ because of its long production run and aftermarket availability.




Here is my GSXR1000 ......

Suzukis are like ak47s... Not always the prettiest but dammit if they don't always come thru.

Had 4 Suzuki's and now i have a 2001 Suzuki DR-Z 400 E only for Enduro rides
I prefer this Suzuki (and the previous others) because of it's reliability, quality and i also like Suzuki's

I do! Right now I have a 2001 DRZ400S and a 2008 SX4 Crossover. Great affordable all wheel drive car and it is much roomier and comfortable than it would appear.

I have had 3 now.
A 75hp 2 stroke many years ago and 2 60hp 4 strokes.

I used to think the 1998 60 shown on the last page was bulletproof, but after 13 years it developed a water/cooling leak in the head, I think from not flushing it as I should have.
I would often come back to the dock after fishing in the AM assuming I would go out again, then not touch the boat for a few days to a week.
It still ran but got water in the oil.

They are kind of complicated compared to the old 2 stroke so rather than rebuild I sold it for parts and replaced it with another one.
