    Ryca is building cafe racers and scramblers using the S40 as a platform. They also offer do it yourself kits.

    When I started this thread, these three Suzukis were my stable. Now I have none of these and only a DRZ, which is a really great machine. I regret most trading in the GSX650F, as I purchased it new and was only able to put 2050 miles on it before trading it in on a Tiger XC. The GSX is a smooth road machine.

    This is the first Suzuki I've ever owned and after riding it for 3 years now, it won't be the last.

    Absolutely amazing engine, particularly hauling the ultimate farkle on the side.

    Can't explain why I like them so much. My 1st "real" motorcycle was a 1968 Suzuki TC 120, a 3 speed with the dual range tranny. Next was a 1972 TC90. Same dual gearbox but 4 speeds! My next Suzuki was a brand spanking new 1978 PE 250. God, I loved that bike. Sold it after a while, only to get another of the same model soon after. Took a long break from bikes, trying to be a family man. luckily for me my step son had a dirt bike, and it's been game on since I sat on it!!!! that was about 10 years ago.

    These 2 are my current rides, and I also have a 1982 PE 175 in the basement, all rebuilt and looking purty, should have brought her out for the pic too. The 76 is just a cool bike, and listening to the 2 stroke triple will just...........f'n awsome. Bought the '12 vstrom this past spring, and I love this bike too. Good thread!

    This is my third Suzuki, a 2011 GSXR-750. Had a DR-Z 400S and a DR-350 before. I've always been a fan of Suzukis ever since my friend had a brand new 1978 RM-80. The '78 RMs are still the best looking dirt bikes ever made in my opinion.

    Suzuki DL650 Wee-Strom -- Among the very best of motorcycles when comparing 'price-vs-function' value.

    I figured it was time for me to post here.

    First up the the DL650.
    It was the first bike.
    It was the reason why I joined this forum.
    It too my best friend and I on many trips and will take me on many more.
    It has almost 50K on the clock and the only issue was the starter/headlight switch (now fixed).

    And doing anything else I ask!

    Never a complaint or hiccup; always a blast to ride.

    The second bike a DR350 is a bit rough around the edges, but never fails and is bomb proof.
    I picked this one up for next to nothing and brought her back to great running condition and now enjoy homing my woods and trail riding skills.

    I have never owned another brand bike (minus the Guzzi, but thats in its own league) and I hope to continue my enjoyment of the Suzukis by adding a DR650 to the stable for the more serious ADV touring and hopefully a TAT ride :clap
    The Suzukis have worked so well for me, why would I have any reason to change it now.
