    The S40 looks great since they changed to the drag bars. Have you seen what Ryca is doing with those bikes?

    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.
