    To answer the original question - I don't! That's why this one is kept company by a Honda, Kawasaki, Aprilia and several Yamahas!

    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.

    Because it was inexpensive, is comfortable, efficient, not too maintenance intensive and you can meld into a partnership with it... (the last part was sappy but true - of course if you rode any kind of bike a lot that would be possible but some just are better for the purpose!

    When I've been in the market for a motorcycle, I always try to keep an open mind about finding the right bike for its intended purpose, and then looks, price,reliabilty, and all of that come after. But somehow, now I've ended up with three Suzukis in my garage. When I think back on the bikes I've owned since my first one ('92 Suzuki Bandit 400) up to my current fleet, I see that I have found a lot of Suzukis that meet my criteria at the time.

    First of the current fleet is an 07 DL650 that replaced a 98 KLR. No comparison. Bought it in late '09 with 2400 miles, now has 19K.
    the photo is from a recent KC phototag.

    Next was something more off road capable than the DL or KLR.
    I seriously considered a KLX250 and WR250R. Then I found a deal on this 07 DRZ with less than 250 miles on it. I think that was in Sept '10.
    This photo was from the '12 Swinging Bridges Ride in Missouri.

    The most recent addtion is a 2011 TU250x. I really don't know why I bought it. I've always liked the vintage and retro bikes. It's really more fun than I expected. I thought maybe my stepson or someone visiting may need a loaner bike. I thought about making it a scrambler or cafe racer. I think I'll leave it alone for now. It was used at a MSF school for two seasons, but was considered new. It had 650 miles on it when I bought it a few weeks ago. I de stickered it, added the fork boots, and stuck the windscreen on it for the winter.

    I love my Suzuki because it is so well mannered and handles so well, that it finds itself at the perfect apex, no matter what I do!
