I have yet to buy a factory bike whose suspension is not perfectly adequate 90% of time if properly adjusted.

I just wish this line of BS would stop...its worthless. There is so much more that is pertinent....like proper tires, proper first gear ratios, large enough tank, and of course a quality seat. But keep dreaming. If you want a motocross set up put it on and shut up...please.

But.......it helps "wet the appetites" regardless.........

Suzuki is "betting" that the new DL1000 will help pull themselves out of the fire...........see a blurb in the following article:

One of the dwindling number of Suzuki dealers in my local area has thrown the towel in. This new product march can't come quick enough..

I think this is where the trouble all started for Suzuki. The guy in the red sweater...

In my opinion, Suzuki jumped the shark when the Gladius came out.
