I'm guessin that's 'bout 55-60 thousand miles right there! Ever have to have her apart?
I like Suzuki GSes so I started a thread about them.
I'm not one for being "easy" on a bike and the Suzukis just keep going! I have 3 now...love them!
The TLR is the best bike by suzuki...
The Suzuki dealer in my hometown was a great guy, the other shops were less than friendly. I ended up working in the dealership and my first "Zook" was the 1989 GSX750FK Katana. 40,000 miles of joy.
After I sold the Katana, I found this 1986 GSXR1100 with only 3000 miles. It was immaculate and I loved every one of the 35,000 miles I rode with her.
Many years went by and I was living in Asia riding scooters etc. I finally got an opportunity to bring a bike into China and decided the DL650 V-Strom was the "do everything" bike I needed. It really is a fantastic motorcycle...a great balance of sport/touring/adventure... and the price was great too!
As much as I love the Wee-Strom, I needed something for the daily grind, so I decided to go with the QingQi QM250. QingQi is an official licensed partner with Suzuki in China. Take a DR200, slap in the TU250 engine and dress it up as a motard. I call it my "Suzuki with Chinese characteristics".
Will always love my Zooks...
That mullet in the first pic is classic. All the bikes are great and the Chinese motard looks like tons o' fun.
Fall is coming, workload lessening, more riding. Temps falling and ATGATT not so suffocating. Can't wait to get on it. I find this bike alot of fun to flick around. With the modifications, it does the hills and trails just fine.
I'm not really that brand-loyal but my DR350 is absolutely the perfect bike for the places and the way I ride. It takes me where I want to go, and gets me back again.
There's just no other bike that I've found that suits me as well as the 350. Long may she run.
As it happens, my first bike was also a Suzuki:
TS185, Lucerne Valley, CA, c. 1978
Me and my Strom on the Col de Tende july 2011. I bougt it in April 2010 with 35.000 km's on it. Now 57.000.
Because it is the same color as the sky
The SV has so much going for it and yet so many opportunities for improvement. Reliable, personable, comfortable and handles like a dream.
This bike has been down 4 times at the track. Twice low-sided, once made it to the tire wall, and the last time took a 8 foot jump off of a cliff putting me in the hospital for 10 days and recovering for another 3 months. It's put back together for $1900 which included all new wheels, body work, rotors, odds and ends... Zukis are indestructible and get a bad rap for being cheap because they are priced lower than the other 3, which is fine. Its more zuki for us
had a katana 600 loved sold cause i needed the money, had a viatara go anywhere 4x4 just needed heavier tires.
now i own a 07 dr650 which i love. my next car will probably be the sx4 versatile machines at a working mans price love'm
I have an SX4 Crossover. Unstoppable in the snow.
What can I say? Damn thing goes where I point it..Always.
Most fun for the buck... great handling bikes, reliable, just plain fun!
I like Zooks because they make a good solid L-twin, and inlines suck
